Lisa Bacon: Director of Sales Asia
Madeline discovered a love for traveling at a very young age. When she was 12 years old her entire family went on an 8 week tour around Europe. Her father always likes to remind her that when they were in Venice, Italy she turned to her father and said “Will you come visit me when I live here?”. This experience has shaped the rest of her life so far. At the age of 20 she took a 2 month trip to New York and again fell in love with another city. To explore more of New York and North America she applied for a Canadian working holiday visa and moved to Toronto, Canada.
When Madeline arrived back home she studied a Diploma in Marketing at Swinburne University. From here Madeline became an events co-ordinator at a company called Greenevent. This is a supplier of greenery styling to the Event and Exhibition Industry. She has worked on events such as the Melbourne Grand Prix, Melbourne Spring Carnival and Taste of Melbourne. Working there she discovered her love for meeting people, organising and working in a fast paced environment.
Madeline then decided she wanted to explore more of the world and applied for a 2 year working holiday visa in the UK. This enabled Madeline to travel to many destinations including Ireland, Poland, Sweden, France, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and many more and lived in London for 12 months. During her time in London Madeline worked as an Administration and Sales Co-ordinator for Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotels. Madeline has a great knowledge of all Edwardian Hotels in London and looks forward to the new adventure The Hotel Connection will bring.
