Naomi Taylor – Events Manager
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
