About David Winterflood
David graduated from the University of Newcastle in 1999 with a degree in Physiological Sciences and moved to London to start a career as a researcher within an HR consultancy firm. After developing technical research skills and taking-on a greater people management role, he was recruited into a competitor to help run a then ailing business. Wearing various operational and line management hats he was part of a successful business turnaround which was subsequently sold to a private equity house. David then joined a boutique management consulting firm to lead business operations and had responsibility for technology, people, premises and events. He sat on the executive committee and worked closely with the partners on the continued growth of the firm.
With a background in operational management within professional services firms together with a passion for the outdoors and live events, it was only natural that David would combine the two and launch Great British Glamping in 2014. Great British Glamping provides luxury tented accommodation for weddings, festivals and parties across the UK, using a large village of beautiful canvas bell tents to create versatile and memorable places to stay.
In this seminar, David Winterflood - founder of Great British Glamping - will explore the opportunities and benefits of providing glamping accommodation to weddings and parties, and how, in doing so, you can create long lasting memories of amazing days. In a world where we are increasingly connected by technology, data and virtual worlds, it’s important to take time to recharge and reconnect with the outside world and enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures. Sleeping under the stars surrounded by family and friends is one of the best ways to end an amazing celebration.
