Delphine crowned tourism champion

October, 2012

The tireless efforts of Maxim’s Delphine Houlton have been recognised at Visit Kent's recent 10th birthday celebrations.

Before more than 150 of the county’s leading tourism businesses, and representatives from Kent County Council and local authorities, Amanda Cottrell, Chairman of Visit Kent, the county's tourism champion and a client of Maxim, announced that Delphine was one of this year’s recipients of the Chairman’s Award for her services to the county’s tourism industry.

Andrew Metcalf, director, who accepted the award on Delphine’s behalf as she was unable to attend, said: “Receiving an award is always a morale boost, receiving one from a client is doubly satisfying, and proof positive that what we do as individuals and as a team at Maxim is greatly appreciated.

“Having worked with the team at Visit Kent for six years, and previously for Kent Tourism Alliance, it has been great to have been involved in promoting the county’s significant efforts to ensure its tourism industry goes from strength-to-strength.”

Announcing the award, Amanda Cottrell said: “At Visit Kent we do not think of Delphine as working for a PR Agency, but as one of the Visit Kent team because she is so passionate about what we do and so committed to spreading the word, going the extra mile working morning, noon, night and weekends to get the coverage. She is not only professional, calm, enthusiastic and full of new ideas but great fun to work with a fantastic sense of humour and wicked laugh!

In receiving the award, Delphine was in prestigious company as Amanda Cottrell, also publicly recognised the work of Sarah Wood and Emma Reynolds, of Mulberry Cottages, Canterbury; Mary Sewell and Ed Woollard, of Medway Council tourism team; John George and David Holder, of Prince’s Golf Club, Sandwich; Trevor Bond, of the Ramada Dover, Dover Marina, and Express by Holiday Inn Canterbury; and Trevor Sturgess, editor of Kent Business.

The award was presented at the event, held at Brogdale, home of the national fruit collection, near Faversham.
