A fascination with the hotel industry sprung at a young age from family holidays in the UK and overseas. Coupled with avidly watching travel programmes on the TV, Judy quite fancied being a future Joan Bakewell!
After gaining a diploma in Hotel Management she secured one of a handful of places on a Crest Hotels Management Training Scheme, then became an assistant Hotel Manager in a country house hotel, but feeling too cut off from the city at such a tender age Judy returned to London and started a successful career in hotel sales and marketing.
From a boutique Kensington property to Mount Charlotte Hotels, Stakis Hotels, a year with a UK Conference Agency, Forte Hotels Int (during which time they became Forte Meridien), Westin Hotels & Resorts, she finally settled on using her expertise and connections to create her own business.
The progress from UK hotel groups to International Hotels provided the opportunity for travel – the saying "Travel broadens the mind" rung true and continues.
Food has also been a key interest for Judy, collecting tips from around the world she is always happy to have a gathering of friends around her kitchen table as much as try out the latest Celebrity Chef or Michelin starred establishment.
A move from London to the Surrey/Sussex borders also brought the challenge of house refurbishment and the art of gardening - now a new passion - along with a desire to paint when time permits.
Married to Mark who shares her love of travel, gourmet food and the UK countryside, their black Labrador, numerous godchildren and of course family and friends all make for a social diary that keep their roots firmly in England. Oh – and of course a huge George Michael fan!
About the website
Judy is an inspirational sales person who believes in all the portfolio members she works with.
She is personally involved in everything that goes on at RAM. Suppliers are most often recommended and come with sparkling credentials, and RAM personnel all have the same ethos and friendly nature that RAM is known for. The website goes some way to portray this and a lot of thought has gone into the content to create an outstanding and different offering to the MICE industry.
We are delighted to be joining forces with the Team at RAM to help us spread the word about our wonderful location, unique facilities and great Doonbeg community. We have been aware of RAM’s dedicated approach to representing the best properties worldwide to the best meeting planners in the UK and having had the opportunity to work closely with Judy on a recent FAM trip to the West of Ireland, we knew we needed to be part of their portfolio. We are looking forward to working closely with the RAM Team and most importantly helping you, the Meeting Planner, exceed your clients’ expectations.

Galway Convention Bureau Ireland West is Ireland’s newest convention bureau. One of our objectives for 2018 was to increase the profile of our destination with MICE bookers in the UK. The convention bureau acquired the services of Judy Till and the RAM ORG team to do this by recruiting for a familiarisation trip to Galway. Judy has exceptional knowledge of UK agents and their business needs for Ireland. RAM ORG get the job done on time and have a skilled team to assist with all your needs. I would not hesitate to recommend RAM ORG.

We loved the thought and detail from RAM that went into our promotions in the UK MICE market – in just over 24 hours we were able to meet so many UK clients and portray the city of Prague. Thank-you to all that attended and we hope that we can welcome you and many others to our city soon! (Prague Convention Bureau's 10th Anniversay UK Events Sept 2018)

As always it is an absolute pleasure to deal with the RAM Organisation – their professionalism and attention to detail is always a wonderful asset when away on a FAM. If there is something they don’t know, rest assured they will find out for you. Every FAM with RAM offers me a different perspective and route to market, with different and unique venues, hotels and areas to discover - one’s that we have not thought of before!

As I said at last week’s MIMAs John (and congratulations again on deserved multiple success), your marketing materials are truly stand out. It’s the only circular I bother to read and the one I genuinely look forward to receiving, because you’re about the only company who makes an effort with style, content, thread and relevance. Keep up the great work.
