Meet The Team that Make It Exceptional at Brooklands Hotel
We've introduced some of the key members of the team here at Brooklands Hotel but we thought you'd like to get to know them a little better. Next up, it's Nicole Martin, our Meetings & Events Sales Manager, who has been at Brooklands three years. Nicole, along with her team, will be the people you speak to if you are looking to hold a meeting, conference, party, dinner or any kind of event at Brooklands Hotel.
Nicole has dealt with a large number and variety of events but one of her favourites was when a guest called looking for a birthday party venue as their original one (a WWII fort in the English Channel) had been cancelled due to the weather. Nicole had just 48 hours to turn the event around, sourcing entertainment and decorations to making sure the catering was all confirmed, along with the guest bedrooms. It was a hectic 48 hours but the party was amazing and both the client and their guests loved it.
Not all events go smoothly though and Nicole had a near miss when she took a bride & groom for their photos and they were nearly hit by a golf ball. Luckily, this wasn’t at Brooklands Hotel as you’d have to be a VERY good golfer to hit a golf ball to the hotel from the golf courses nearby!
Nicole has looked after many wedding couples but she was slightly surprised when one of her couples decided not to get married and cancelled the registrar. Instead, they asked Nicole to perform a friendship ceremony in front of all of their guests, which Nicole was honoured to do (after she had got over the shock!)
Working with people; both members of the team at Brooklands, clients and their guests is one of the joys for Nicole of working in hospitality. She loves being part of organising successful events and making guests experiences positive & memorable.
