Gooden previously worked as a business support executive at TUI for 11 years. During her time there she also worked as part of the in-house events team, taking responsibility for a variety of events including retail conferences and learning and development workshops.

Gooden will be the first point of contact for Woburn’s corporate clients. She will be responsible for building relationships with clients to understand their event objectives, as well as booking accommodation, arranging dinner in one of the on-site restaurants or organising team building activities.

Commenting on her appointment, Gooden said: "My experience of dealing with bookings and availability, combined with my time in the events team at TUI has given me a passion for looking at the finer details of events and liaising with clients to deliver excellent customer service. I really enjoyed my time in the events team at TUI and it was the start of what is now an exciting new career opportunity for me here at Center Parcs."

Events manager at Center Parcs Woburn Forest, Liz Pilling, said: "We are thrilled to welcome Kate to the Events team. Our corporate events team works very hard to ensure the highest possible level of service and quality for our corporate guests and we are very much looking forward to working with Kate and utilising her events experience."
