WEDx is brought to you by Tracy Butterfield, Director of Appleby Events. Ask Tracy what she does and she will say "I champion Wedding Professionals". A major connector within the wedding community, she's passionate about inspiring, motivating and building communities.
Tracy is wedding hardcore. Referred to as a rock in the industry, "cut her in half and you'll see 'Weddings' running through her!" As an image consultant she worked on her first wedding some 20 years ago and since then has held positions as a wedding planner and co-ordinator at two stately homes, Operations Manager at a 5 star hotel, plus GM of both a Golf and Event Club and a Gastro Pub as well as running her own music and entertainment venue.
It’s fair to say that she’s seen the business of weddings, hospitality and customer service from all sides.
In 2014 her passion for the wedding industry and those that work tirelessly within it, led to her founding the Four Counties Wedding Awards (4CWA), recognising and rewarding the excellent customer service of those in the wedding industry. 4CWA has fast become a community that brings together and supports its members.
Fast forward to 2017 and the desire to create unique events for the wedding industry that would weducate, inspire and motivate was realised in the formation of WEDx. Tracy is very comfortable on stage sharing her own expertise and knowledge whilst hosting each WEDx event and the always engaging Q&A session with the speakers.
Bringing together wedding glitterati, legends and mavericks, Tracy has created stimulating events and workshops. WEDx is for those that are serious about taking their businesses to another level and who are ready to connect and collaborate, and have fun doing it.
Tracy is proud to have recently accepted the role of Director of Development for The National Association of Wedding Professionals. This will see her continue her quest to bring integrity and professionalism to wedding professionals and bring that attention to couples getting married choosing their suppliers.
