"The Importance of Networking & Your Business"
Presented by: Jacqueline A. Hickey
Director of Sales & Marketing
Gil's Elegant Catering
I was born into a family that loved to cook and entertain. My mother's food was delicious and each night we had dinner together as a family. But these were not your typical dinners; these were three course gourmet dinners. Word spread that my mother was a great cook and she began catering from home which she coined "catering for college". Through the years, that grew into a full restaurant and catering company called "Cock of the Walk." After I graduated with my BS in Marketing & Sales from the University of Texas at Arlington, I immediately began to work in her restaurant full time. Eventually we sold the restaurant and I continued down the path in the event planning world.
In 2004 the City Club of Fort Worth hired me as their Wedding Coordinator and I could not have been more blessed. I was part of their remarkable team for 3 years and acted like a sponge, absorbing and learning everything I could about the wedding & catering industry.
With my newfound confidence, my next move was to the Warwick Melrose Hotel, Dallas where I was hired as the Social Catering Manager and eventually promoted to the Director of Social Catering. I remember when I first moved to Sherman, Texas when I was 13 years old and my mother and I used to take Mother Daughter dates to Dallas. On one such occasion we had brunch at the Melrose and I remember saying to her "I wish I could to work here someday". Twelve years later there I was sitting in my office fulfilling my dream!
