Eric Jones: Finalist in the 2017 Manchester Hoteliers Association Awards

It came as quite a shock when I found out that not only had I been nominated for the Unsung Hero category for my work at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel, but I had been shortlisted

Although I didn’t win, it’s still great to be appreciated.

However, I’m always striving to work harder and improve my management processes for the benefit of all my clients.


Some recent events

Paris and Farnborough Airshows

My job was to take care of Lockheed Martin who were entertaining overseas clients. I oversaw all of the hospitality for each of the 5-day events. This included managing multiple conference facilities with up to 300 guests at any one time. I managed and trained the hospitality team before and during the event. It was a huge success.

Henley Royal Regatta

I took care of the prestigious Leander Club, servicing high calibre clients. Oversaw breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner for up to 450 guests a day for five days. Took care of the catering provisions for the regatta. Oversaw the serving of traditional lunch and afternoon tea for up to 1000 covers. This event required me to be top of my game.

Gold Cup, Grand National and Epsom Derby

I managed front- and back-of-house for 750 covers. I played various roles throughout these prestigious events. Organised the setup and delivery of service. Managed hospitality suites with up to 350 guests. Managed public restaurants. Led and trained several teams. Every year, upon client requests, I take on key management roles at these events.
