Meet the Team

Paul Black

MICE Senior Consultant

What I have done…

I have been working in the tourism and events industry for over 12 years specialising in the MICE and group sectors. I have worked for a leading group tour operator, help launch a Spanish resort into the UK MICE market, and worked in the Business Team at Visit London (now London & Partners).  I graduated from University of Wales, Cardiff in 2003 in European Union Studies with Spanish and Italian.


What I do now…

I joined HB in August 2010 and look after the sales and marketing for NYC & Company (New York City Convention Bureau) across the UK and Continental Europe in the meeting, association and incentive sectors. The role involves key business development in these sectors and territories, design and execution of all sales and marketing activities, and liaison with all NYC & Company Members on strategic direction for European business. I am now Hills Balfour's Senior Consultant.


What I do for fun…

I am fortunate to have travelled to some amazing places for leisure and rugby.  I enjoy many sports such as tennis, running, rowing, and have recently completed my second marathon. At weekends I enjoy South West London’s restaurants and pubs, as well as escaping the countryside or beach for some chill time!


What I bring to Hills Balfour…

I have developed strong client relationships with MICE buyers during my career to date which is key when developing business for our clients. Having worked in both public and private bodies I am well positioned to discuss, design and implement client sales and marketing activities in the UK and European MICE sector. I also arguably make the best cup of tea in the MICE department albeit in questionable quantity.
