Biography

BIO – , Executive Committee Member – Charity Partner Liaison, Meeting Needs

With more than 30 years’ experience in the European MICE industry, Shaun has held a number of management roles in operations and sales and marketing for global incentive houses, travel management companies, technology providers and destination management companies. His client focus has centred on automotive, financial/professional services, IT and pharmaceutical. For the last 10 years, Shaun has concentrated on developing global strategic meetings management programmes, working closely with a number of leading client brands.

Core to Shaun’s management strategy has been the focus on Corporate Social Responsibility. At Pacific World, he launched the concept: “Opening Eyes” which gave each of the DMC partner destinations the opportunity to build a CSR component into their corporate conference and incentive travel programmes. More recently, Shaun developed an initiative at BI WORLDWIDE to engage employees more fully in running their own CSR Programme. The acronym CARE – Compassion, Awareness, Respect and Education gave BI WORLDWIDE associates the opportunity to support Girls and Boys Town in KwaZulu Natal. Shaun campaigned hard to get Meeting Needs to support this cause.

In 2014 Shaun took a sabbatical from the industry to pursue his interest in CSR. He worked as a Spanish Interpreter and Lead Project Manager with the youth development charity Raleigh. Supporting their community-led WASH initiative in Northwest Nicaragua he led the implementation of a gravity-fed drinking water system to supply more than 400 inhabitants of a remote mountain village with drinking water in conjunction with the fair trade cooperative, Juan Francisco Paz Silva.

Having retired from BI WORLDWIDE in June of this year, Shaun’s main focus has moved to Meetings Needs and how he can promote the charity with the meetings industry and work more closely with Charity Partners.
