About the trainers: Melanie Cash, Melanie Cash Associates & Helen Cuddy, Yellow Dog Consulting. Melanie Cash has over 20 years’ experience in the hotel and hospitality industry, working for international brands including Marriott International and Hilton Hotels. Holding senior positions across sales, marketing and training departments she had the perfect platform from which to launch her own consultancy and training business in 2004. Melanie and her team of associates have successfully delivered a range of training and consultancy services across many independent venues and established brands.

Helen has had a long career in Business, Sales and Customer Service and launched into the MICE Industry over 10 years ago working originally in Agencies including Zibrant and Ashfield Meetings and Events and moved to Venues to see the contrasts within the Venue environment and lead a pro-active team at Imago Venues.
