Les Clefs d’or

Where Sydney - - Contents - BY MARK ANDERSON, STATE DI­REC­TOR FOR NSW

THE END OF WIN­TER and be­gin­ning of spring is a very busy time for our mem­bers and Sydney concierge. There are many great events in Sydney dur­ing this time and with the start of the warm weather the city has some great out­door ex­pe­ri­ences that come back to life.

At the end of Au­gust Les Clefs d’or mem­bers and fel­low concierge gath­ered to­gether for the an­nual Sydney Concierge Tourism Expo, this year held on­board a ves­sel moored at Baranga­roo, thanks to our good friends at Cap­tain Cook Cruises. This great an­nual event gives concierge an op­por­tu­nity to meet new sup­pli­ers and catch up with in­dus­try friends.

Plans are well un­der­way for the 2017 Sydney Concierge and Hospi­tal­ity Ball, which this year will be held on Sunday 15 Oc­to­ber at the Hil­ton Sydney. The theme this year is ‘Wel­come to Tele­vi­sion’ where we cel­e­brate 60 years of TV in Aus­tralia. As well as be­ing an in­dus­try night, this event also raises much needed funds for St. An­thony’s Fam­ily Care, our nom­i­nated char­ity. St An­thony’s is a small not for profit or­gan­i­sa­tion which works to carry out the mis­sion of Saint Mary of the Cross Mackil­lop in car­ing for chil­dren and fam­i­lies in need. Tick­ets are cur­rently on sale at stick­yt­ick­ets.com.au/53623

Au­gust has also seen some ma­jor events for sev­eral of our mem­bers. Firstly, we must con­grat­u­late Jonathan Fam­bart of Park Hy­att Sydney, and Ja­son Aberin of the Hil­ton Sydney, and their wives as they wel­come new ba­bies into their fam­ily.

Fi­nally, at the end of Au­gust we all gath­ered to cel­e­brate the re­tire­ment of our good friend Ron Greedy of The Westin Sydney. After over 22 years as a mem­ber of Les Clefs d’or Aus­tralia Ron will have more time to fo­cus on his other great pas­sions. We thank Ron for all his hard work and con­tri­bu­tions, and wish him well for the fu­ture.
