September 20, 2016

As an award-winning company, Cavendish Venues pride ourselves on a personable service, tailored to you. And here is a little bit more about our #eventprofs.
We speak to Denis, our popular Operations Manager at The Hallam, shortlisted for the MIA List 2016, to ask him 10 questions:-

Denis Hickey Linked In 800


If you could have one super power: To be able to teleport anywhere in the world

If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life: A Toasted Smoked Ham and Gruyere Cheese Sandwich on sourdough served with a tomato and red onion salad ,  followed by a tub of Haagen Dazs Pralines and Cream with Salted Caramel Sauce on the side followed by an espresso.

If there was one song that personifies you: What a Wonderful World Louis Armstrong

If you could invite 5 people past and present to dinner: Audrey Hepburn, Graham Norton, Georgia O’Keefe, Jorn Utzon and Sophie Grigson

Pluto or Goofy: Pluto

Most recommended restaurant: 10 Greek Street in Soho

Which film have you watched most times: Bladerunner or Star Wars Episode 4  I think, but it may potentially be The Sound of Music.

What do you enjoy most about Cavendish Venues: We have truly fantastic clients.

Best advice you’ve ever received: The most stylish thing you can ever wear is a smile.

What makes you get up in the morning: My second alarm, an iphone positioned at the far end of my bedroom set for 30 minutes after my actual alarm clock which goes off first. Though I could say – currently, All Saints singing Pure Shores.
