Carol Rouse Phillips joined HelmsBriscoe in 2002 and is still excited to be associated with the global leader in meetings procurement. Carol feels HelmsBriscoe's excellent reputation, buying power, industry partnerships and innovative tools uniquely support her in assisting clients to achieve an unprecedented level of success. Carol's attention to detail, commitment and integrity combine to provide outstanding service to her clients. Carol enjoys the relationships she maintains with both clients and suppliers, enabling her to negotiate successfully on the clients' behalf.
Here is what one of Carol's clients has to say: I have ... always had an excellent experience... saved hours of time ... I can make one call or send one email and then get a quote and an excellent summary of the properties. I also find that there are a lot of perks associated with using HelmsBriscoe. The hotels seem to throw in more concessions than what I am accustomed to receiving when I call. They also help you after the contract is signed. I had an issue where I needed more rooms at a hotel at the last minute. I had begged the hotel and they told me they were sold out. Carol called the hotel for me and got the rooms! I would highly recommend HelmsBriscoe. They save me time and make me look good to my employer!
