Meet the Team - Chris Jones

Meet Chris Jones, our Events & Operations Manager

How much experience do you have in the industry?

“I have been working in the hospitality industry since March 2005, so for a modest 16 years now. In my early days, I was a music student at University.”

Why do you enjoy working in the events industry/ what inspired you to work in the events industry in the first place?

“I enjoy the fact that no two days are the same. It is a constantly changing environment and you get to meet and greet different people each day. Taking the time to understand what the client wants to achieve in the early planning stages and then delivering that and going beyond their expectations gives me a huge sense of job satisfaction and personal pride.”

What motivates you in your job?

“I am motivated by customer satisfaction in every way, whether it be from the event being an all round success or due to the fascinated eyes at lunchtime thanks to the colourful display of the food created by our talented, award-winning chefs.”

What’s different about CCT Venues compared to the previous companies you have worked for or other venues?

“Being an independent company, we understand how important it is to be flexible with our offerings to cater for our clients’ needs. Whether it be adapting to accomodate new streams of business, such as working with St John Ambulance to host their Covid-19 Vaccination Training Programme during the peak of the pandemic, or evolving our offering to meet the ever changing needs of our returning clients with their traditional corporate events.”

Final thoughts…

“It is a great joy and privilege to be welcoming each and every client back to our venues. We have missed you all!”
