Crowne Plaza’s Donna Forbes co-wins Business Development Person of the Year
The title was awarded to Donna Forbes, business development director for Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley and Crowne Plaza Newcastle, and Natalie Dillon, sales and marketing manager at Sydney Cricket Ground Events.
Having only commenced her role with the two properties in May 2016, Forbes made an immediate impact after securing a 720 delegate conference, the largest event Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley has ever hosted.
“Winning this award not only represents my hard work but that of the wider Sales, Marketing and Revenue team that I am part of,” said Forbes.
“This award is also a testament to all working parents. Being part of the IHG family has given me a tremendous amount of flexibility to work part-time, juggle my parental and community commitments while still excelling at what I do.”
