I was delighted to become Chief Executive of Gatwick Diamond Business in October 2018. My background is in economic development and business support, and I have worked extensively in the Gatwick Diamond which has also been my home for over 30 years. 

I lead a professional and committed team dedicated to providing the support and services our members value to help sustain and grow their businesses.

I work closely with our Executive Council, chaired by Anya Ledwith, comprising experienced business people who help identify and champion the needs of our members and provide guidance to me and my team to ensure that we deliver the best possible service to members.

I look forward to getting to know our members, prospective members and partners over the coming months.

As the Membership Development Executive, my main purpose is to support the day to day needs of existing members along with potential new joiners.

Retaining and recruiting is fundamental to the gdb Membership!

I source potential new members through various avenues, for example, I like to attend other people’s events (invitations always welcome!).

It is also great to receive referrals from current members. So if you think of any clients or contacts that might benefit from getting involved and I will happily meet with them to discuss the commercial benefits our Membership can bring.

Additionally, I welcome the opportunity of meeting with current members to discuss how to get the best from their membership.

Providing excellent Customer Service is the essence of my role so please do contact with any questions you have and I will be on hand to help!

After completing my A - Levels, I decided I wanted to take the route of an Apprentceship and Gatwick Diamond Business had a great opportunity for me.

I am now part of the fabulous gdb team!

My role is to provide support to the Membership, Marketing and Events Programme by assisting, maintaining, researching, designing, creating, and to ensure that the office is running smoothly - and of course to say hello to our Members & Non-Members at our Networking Events! 

I hope to not only use my skills I already have, but to pick up more and be a part of the growth and blossoming journey that gdb will have.

 ___________________________________________________________________________________

Since starting as the new Business Administration Apprentice for gdb in July 2019, I have loved being part of such a great team. I enjoyed meeting some of the gdb members at the gdb Charity Challenge 2019 and of course at our many networking meetings, and I am excited for the future events that gdb have planned!

My role involves supporting the smooth running of the office and assisting with the delivery of the membership programme alongside the Membership Executive.  Some of my tasks include making outgoing calls to gdb members and non-members, keeping the database up to date, and working alongside the Events Executive with social media plans.

I am eager to bring the skills I have to the team and am ready for the challenge of learning new skills and new processes.  I am really looking forward to meeting and working with all the gdb members over the coming months.
