Grass Roots says it is not witnessing the talent shortage reported by the wider industry, as it welcomes four new starters.

The meetings and events company has appointed four first-class graduates and an account manager to service new business wins in the strategic meetings management division.

Beth Seddon, Hannah François and Keertana Gursahani-Khatwani are graduates of the University of Greenwich, and Helen Travers has come from Sheffield Hallam University. Having been recruited at the MPI Connects event in April, they joined the London office as venue consultants in June.

Sue Massey, operations director of Grass Roots Meetings & Events commented: "Last week’s HBAA Forum expressed concern at a ‘talent gap’ in the industry, but I can safely say we have no such problem. Through our membership of MPI and attendance at MPI Connects, we’ve built strong links with leading universities and we are immensely proud to have attracted such a high calibre of graduate. I’m happy to say that they are all making great progress through our extensive on-boarding programme."
