Meet the team

Managing Director

Judith Clarke

(all things training!)

Starting with a career in Front Office with Grand Metropolitan Hotels, Judith moved into personnel and training and took on several roles including Training Officer at Le Meridien after the takeover from Gleneagles and set up the first training department for Edwardian Hotels.

Director of eLearning

Graeme Clarke

(the LMS guru!)

Originally working in restaurants and hotels Graeme moved to event catering with Ring & Brymer and then Sodexo where he achieved IIP accreditation for Ascot Racecourse along with developing and running a range of training. He likes to keep his hand in and worked at The London Olympics and runs a chalet at both Farnborough and Paris Air shows for a private client.

Project and Social Media Manager


(We call her 'Twitter')

Jenni started in hotels in Housekeeping and developed her career with a move to Radisson Edwardian with the opening of their Guildford Hotel where she helped set up the Front Office department and carried out Duty Management responsibilities. A move to Hand Picked Hotels in Reservations sparked an interest in Sales and after a short time with Millenium and Copthorne at Stamford Bridge she returned to Handpicked Hotels as a Regional Sales Manager. Importantly, she gives us the’ younger view point’ on development projects

Project Co-ordinator


(great attention to detail!)

Lucy has an operational background in hotels in both Conference and Banqueting Management and Administration along with Front Office. She worked alongside Judith at Halm in the development of projects for the Best Practice Forum and Hospitality Skills Alliance. With 3 children she currently works for us on ad hoc projects but we look forward to her return.
