DAVID Barrett has left Diethelm Events, which he headed for 12 years, and “is keeping all doors open and exploring every opportunity to work in conjunction with hotels, corporates and DMCs in Thailand and further afield”.
“Am I retiring to the farm? Not for another two decades!” he said in an email to Top 100 contacts.
“As the whole world is a stage, apart from ten days in mid-March, when I am contracted in the US to deliver an event in Beverly Hills, I will be wherever opportunities arise, around Asia or beyond.”
A check by TTG Asia e-Daily on Barrett’s LinkedIn profile revealed that he was now listed as director, Projects with a new enterprise called “DBC”, which Barrett goes on to descibe as his own initiative.
“My passion, energy and enthusiasm for the hospitality and events industry are driving me to do what I do best – build business, by bringing together the right connections, resources and creative inspiration…and being able to pull it off,” he added.
