Building upon decades of exceptional events, London’s leading food design and events company, Blue Strawberry and Table Talk, has recently made several high profile appointments, as part of their exciting plans for future growth.
The company’s most recent appointment sees Paolo Macis join the renowned team as Account Director, holding responsibility for the company’s growing contract catering business. With an exceptional career across venues and caterers, Paolo brings a wealth of experience gained across a wide range of special events and fixed-site venue catering contracts.
Following the addition of Jessica Ingram as Interim Head of Sales earlier this year, Samantha Welstead-Wood was selected, as a senior appointment, to undertake the role of Marketing and PR Manager.
With their key focus on building awareness of the company’s brands and driving a dynamic portfolio of events, Jess and Sam share a strong synergy with their client-centric approach to marketing and event sales.
Jess is highly adept at sales strategy and client relationship management, having previously held key positions within high end event catering companies in London and Australia, and luxury hotels and restaurants. Drafted in to provide maternity cover, Jess has already become an invaluable member of the team and is due to continue as Business Development Manager following the return of original Head of Sales, Clementine Lowery.
Sam has eight years experience of marketing, PR, and venue tendering/liaison within London’s high-end events industry. A visual communications design graduate, she previously worked with senior management teams within the arts, education and emergency services sectors.

I’m thrilled to work closely with each of them to further enhance our existing capabilities and drive the next exciting stage of growth. As a team, Blue Strawberry and Table Talk always put the client first. Being privately owned and independent affords us the capacity, imagination and ultimately the vision, to compose captivating events. Paolo, Jess and Sam are the very best at what they do and the whole team are very pleased to welcome them.”
