Stephen Usher has been a key figure in the meeting and events industry, beginning his career 41 years ago as a trainee manager in London. He became General Manager of the Canterbury Hotel at the age of 23, and continued to be GM of further hotels including The Royal Court, Coventry and Ullesthorpe Court Hotel. He founded his own conference booking and event management agency, House of Usher, in 1995, and also served positions in the HBAA of both Treasurer, and subsequently Chair in 2010.

‘I had worked alongside Stephen for many years and recognised how valuable his knowledge and expertise would be to the company; we were delighted when he joined the team in 2015’ Said Chris Peacock, Director. ‘His leadership of the Finance Team has had an incredibly positive impact helping to define and strengthen our processes.’

‘Spending the last three years with the amazing team at Conference Care has been a fantastic way to complement a varied and exciting career’ said Usher, ‘I am now looking forward to the new ‘challenge’ of my position as Chairman of the Local Residents Association in Argaka, Cyprus, which I hope will be no more taxing than enjoying the local Mediterranean produce and watching the fishing boats go by!’
