Compton Verney

Compton Verney is a Grade 1 listed Robert Adam Mansion set in a spectacular 120 acres of parkland landscaped by Capability Brown. The venue houses an award winning art gallery. Jayne Devlin provided the Board of Directors with strategic consultancy to develop the catering offer and ensure it was more aligned with and contributing to the overall corporate business plan. Her input played a crucial part in ensuring that the Board secured a significant grant enabling them to expand the catering and events business. Jayne also contributed to the implementation of the new catering strategy, including developing the in-house team, and Compton Verney won the Best Restaurant in a Destination Venue at the Warwickshire and Coventry Food Awards in September 2009.

"Jayne has helped us to boost income from the café by 8%, despite the challenging economic times. She has implemented a training and development programme for our in-house catering staff that is seeing great results. Jayne has also delivered new business development and marketing activity that has seen us prepare to capture the lucrative corporate events and weddings markets. We’re delighted with what she has done for us."
