How are your plans going at this stage?

One Aldwych has been fully committed throughout the London 2012 Games for a while now, including its five main events spaces. So at this stage I’m looking at the nitty gritty details – precise numbers, timings, menus etc.

‘One month from now I’ll be...’

One month from now I’ll be focusing on the actual arrival of the guests and dealing with last-minute surprises and requests, as the planning and preparation phase will be behind me.

What are you most looking forward to?

I’m really looking forward to the whole Olympic experience, not only in the hotel but throughout London.

This is the first Olympic period I’ve worked in this role, so I expect it to be an exciting learning curve.
