The Big Cheese

The Big Cheese with Mercure Brisbane’s David Raymond

For this week’s The Big Cheese, The Nibbler sits down with Mercure Brisbane Partner David Raymond to chat about The Olympics, Macedonia and Rowan Atkinson.

The great thing about my job is…

The freedom to create and tailor exciting new events every day.

The challenge for industry is…

Staying on top of technological advancements so that we may offer our clients something they’ve never seen before.

My greatest achievement is…

Working on the 2012 Olympic Games in London

I try to relax by…

Snowboarding (when I can) and listening to music.

My favourite venue is…

For very different reasons, the Riverstage in Brisbane or the Tate Modern in London.

I’ve always wanted to travel to…

Eastern Europe – Czech Republic, Montenegro, Macedonia

I can’t live without…

Sadly, my phone.

I really wish I had…

Spent more time learning another language.

If I could invite four people to a dinner party, they’d be…

Hans Zimmer, James Hetfield, Josh Homme and Rowan Atkinson

For anyone starting out in the industry one piece of advice I’d give would be ….

Ask as many questions as you can. And when you run out of questions to ask, find more.
