Your Event Managers
I’m Caroline Jones and Director of PCC Events. I have lived and breathed the hospitality industry for 27 years and have loved every minute of it. (Well OK, almost every minute!). I will be your main point of contact and will personally ensure that your event runs seamlessly.
What I enjoy most about what I do is getting to know my clients and what they need. We effectively become a part of your team as we work closely with you for anywhere up to 18 months. We get to learn about so many organisations and industries which I find personally fascinating. It takes me out of my own bubble and allows me to become involved in multiple industries and disciplines which I’ve discovered has benefits for our clients and us as we start a useful collaboration with each other.
In the end it comes down to being able to create a truly unique event which our clients can be proud to say they hosted.
A Little Background on Caroline
My first job was as a pot washer in the ANZ Bank’s staff canteen in North Sydney. Not glamorous by any means! I spent 3 years catering in corporate kitchens as an Assistant Manager and Manager when I decided that cooking wasn’t my calling and moved into hotels where I received a thorough grounding in customer service, hotel operations and hard work.
I worked as a Restaurant Manager with the Sebel Town House in its hey day, serving celebrities such as Elton John, Phyllis Diller, Germaine Jackson and Joan Armatrading to name a few. From there I moved on to Conference Manager, Banquet Operations Manager, Banquet Sales Manager and then into Sales and Marketing in various hotel chains.
I decided to go into business for myself so I could provide a service for my clients that I could be proud of and provide a company that they prefer to work with. I still feel that way today. I love what I do, and I love my clients. I feel privileged to be intimately involved with each client’s business.
I’m Debbie Coetzee and I’m an Event Manager at PCC Events. I have been part of this roller-coaster events industry for over 25 years.
What I really enjoy about what I do is working with such a variety of people and being allowed a glimpse into their worlds. It is truly satisfying to piece together what seems like a 10,000 piece jigsaw puzzle over the course of a year and watch it all come together as one amazing event. Our clients get the accolades and we are proud to have supported them.
Whilst Caroline and Debbie are the face of PCC Events, there is a fabulous team backing us up allowing us to make your event happen.
We have created a very carefully selected support and partner network that guarantees reliability and professionalism at all levels.
Our dynamic and dedicated team ensures creatively compiled programmes and excellent service, set in suitable venues and locations.
Our reputation for integrity, attention to detail, experienced senior staff and strong relationships with top vendors ensures we help you navigate through concerns such as best venue, location, audiovisual/IT requirements, budgeting, ticketing and delegate registration, website set up, on-site management and venue liaison to name a few, whilst ensuring that your delegates have a successful, enjoyable and memorable time.
