Nicole Tingey

Nicole is a tourism and hospitality professional with an innovative approach to designing and managing successful business expansion strategies. 

  • Our staff thoroughly enjoyed the course and found Jakki & Nicole to be approachable and enlightening. They encouraged interaction and participation and recognised the importance of tailoring the training specifically to our business, which was really beneficial. It has helped staff from Function Sales through to Venue Managers fully appreciate that every engagement with a customer is a potential sales opportunity. I especially appreciated the work that was done to understand our specific business goals and objectives and our current challenges, so that the training was relevant and tailored to our needs, which ensured buy-in from the team and I could be more confident of an appropriate return on the cost/ investment.

    Aaron Morrison, CEO, Sand Hill Road (Group of Hotels)
  • My team enjoyed the training provided by Clockwise Consulting and found Jakki and Nicole both extremely knowledgeable as well as approachable and personable in their delivery. My objective was for the team to build on their experience gained whilst working in their roles and to put the steps in place to take this further and increase conversion through great customer service. The feedback from them has been nothing but positive and the ongoing support and coaching is a fantastic resource that is showing results.


    Simon Monk, General Manager, Mercure Ballarat Hotel & Convention Centre
  • Working with a team of young managers our sessions with Clockwise Consulting were a fantastic introduction to basic sales techniques, these sessions enabled operational managers to begin to get an insight into the strategies of our sale steam as well as starting to understand how they can help the sales team to attract and convert more business.  Food and beverage based hospitality often has a simplified idea of sales.  The sessions with Clockwise Consulting enabled my operational managers to begin to see sales as a key part of driving top line revenue for the venue.

    DAN VINEY, Sandhill Road Group
  • “I engaged Clockwise Consulting to advise on the sales and marketing function in my  hotels. Through their analysis,  there were a number of gaps in process and team knowledge that were uncovered. Investment in further training of my hotel sales team led them to become much more focused on converting business and overall take on a more commercial approach.  Jakki’s work improved the bottom line through improvements in systems and processes in both marketing and sales and via commercial partnerships that she introduced”

    Russel Cool, Onyx Hospitality Group - Sri Lanka
  • “An extremely well organised roadshow.  The suppliers were very informative/creative which I walked away with a number of fantastic ideas/venues for my group of Surgeon’s attending their Congress in May 2019, thanks Nicole”.  Linda Millard,     Events Manger ,   Corporate Blue

  • Nicole played a lead role in shaping the tourism marketing of Broome over many years. Not only was this through her role with one of WA’s largest resort properties, but also through her involvement on a number of industry-led committees. Nicole was highly regarded by industry peers for her knowledge of regional tourism and she was the ‘go-to’ person whenever advice was needed. Nicole’s professionalism was exemplary and her knowledge of the mechanics of the tourism industry was second to none. She was often approached by industry bodies to provide advice and direction.
