Sales & Business Development Executive
I have been involved with or playing sports for as long as I can remember with my preferred two being cricket and rugby. Although I no longer play rugby, I still follow it with a keen interest and am a big supporter of both Gloucester & England. I am still heavily involved with cricket and have just finished my 3rd season as 1st XI captain of Bourton Vale.
Cricket has always been my stronger suit and has meant I have got to play in several leagues, both in the UK and Australia. Whilst I had toured before, the season spent playing and living in Australia was my first real taste of combining both sports and travel and working for Venatour has given me the opportunity to expand on this further.
Having worked in the sales & business development sector for a large part of my career, joining Venatour has allowed me to utilise both this and my passion for sports while putting together and delivering different supporter tours.
Barbara and I had a wonderful weekend in Dublin with Venatour. We have been to Dublin many times for Six Nations matches but never with Venatour. The hotel was ideal because of it's nearness to the ground and numerous restaurants. We found our tour guides very friendly and helpful. Our fellow supporters were also very friendly and pleasant. A thoroughly enjoyable trip despite the result! We hope to travel with Venatour to future matches.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for organising our Rugby tour this year. Everything worked as planned and we all had a fantastic time. The hotel was just at the level required, bar below was enjoyed by all. Breakfast at the hotel followed by pasta at both the clubs and Pizza on Saturday night all delicious. Your associates on the ground in Italy where very nice and helpful and on time. Our hosts at both clubs welcomed us and the boys played some great rugby at a very competitive level. As you know the success of a tour is really the bonding experience that happens in all directions and I have to say this tour achieved it. Smiley tired happy faces left Gatwick on our return with a great appreciation for Rugby and its Family. Well done and thankyou from all of us at Chobham RFC Colts for helping to make this tour a success.
