Naomi Taylor - Events Manager

Name & Job Title

Naomi Taylor – Events Manager

 

When did you start your career at the Resort?

I first started working at the Resort in 2007, shortly after the Spa opened.  My first position was Spa Reception Manager and since then I have moved around a few departments, finally joining the events team in September last year after I was away from the Resort for a couple of years. 

 

What attracted you to a career in Events?

I studied Hospitality Management at University and for my placement year I was Christmas Co-ordinator in a city centre hotel.  This gave me a taster for events and I got my foot in the door when I became part of the events team, this then led to me joining their team full time. Befor I became part of the team here at Galgorm in September I had been away from Events for a number of years and did miss it, so I have to say I am glad to be back doing what I love.

 

What do you enjoy the most about your role?

I enjoy the interaction with the clients and building up a relationship with them; showing them around the Resort and discussing their requirements to ensure that we have all the information we need to make their event a success.  Each event is different, whether it be a small meeting for 10 people, a conference for 200 or a gala dinner for 300.  Each one is important to the individual client, therefore it is essential that we have a full understanding of what they require and that they feel in safe hands.

 

Tell us a little about your favourite Galgorm Gem? 

I would have to say the Great Hall.  It has a more traditional, sophisticated feel, with a stunning waterfall backdrop.  It is such a flexible space suitable for all types of events; conferences, exhibitions, product launches, gala dinners, celebrations, Christmas party nights.

 

Your greatest piece of advice for those planning an event at Galgorm?

Galgorm is a great place to come to relax, so I would say take the stress out of it, relax and let us take care of it all!
