Meet the team
Andrew Keen - Conference and Events Manager
Having now committed over half of my life to hospitality, I am passionate about delivering great service, amazing experiences and fantastic conferences and events. My focus is to ensure that our clients leave the Nottingham Conference Centre and talk as much about their event as they do about my team, our facilities and the city of Nottingham. To do this, my time is spent networking in the city and region, driving forward our passion to sustain the environment, and developing great products and ideas to make every visit to the conference centre truly memorable.
My wife Hayley keeps me organised, my son Charlie - who is two in November - makes sure I stay fit, and I am just about to turn 40, so have set my self a series of challenges that have just started, so when asked what I did for my fortieth, I can say ran two half marathons in four weeks; played golf for 24 hours; a 40 bar pub crawl; cycled the Great Nottingham Cycle run 100 miles; did a parachute jump; ran the Nottingham marathon; and from doing all of this – raised £5,000 for Age Concern.
So in between these personal challenges I also like to play golf, run, cycle and just have fun with my family and friends.

Jillian Miles - Conference and Events Operations Manager
My background is in Event Management and I am experienced in managing large and small high profile events for both public and private sector clients in the UK and internationally. Having previously worked within academia my main focus at Nottingham Conference Centre is to look after all our academic conferences as well as ensuring that the day to day operations of the conference centre run smoothly.
I'm well suited to event management and love planning just about anything personally as well as professionally! When I'm not at work family life is most important to me, spending time with my husband and daughter of 18 months. With the spare time I have during the week I swim regularly and enjoy walking and generally being outdoors.
