Nicola Butler

Owner and Managing Director

Originally from Cambridgeshire and with 20 years of experience in managing high-end live events, Nicola is a true expert in her field and is ideally talented to develop and lead the range of extraordinary experiences delivered by the NoteWorthy team.

Since joining NoteWorthy, Nicola has been personally recognised five years in a row as a Travel + Leisure ‘A-List Travel Advisor’, Condé Nast Traveler Top ‘Travel Specialist for Great Britain & Ireland’ and has previously led the team to win Virtuoso’s coveted ‘Best Destination Specialist’ award.

Nicola designs and develops bespoke NoteWorthy programmes across Great Britain, Ireland, Paris and Normandy. She introduces guests to her friends and contacts, from hosting whiskey tastings in a private ‘shebeen’ through to flower arranging in a stately home. Some of Nicola’s most notable programmes have included escorting clients to dine with A-list celebrities, taking guests behind the scenes at St. Paul’s Cathedral, staying in private castles in Ireland and Scotland, flying guests by helicopter to a private estate in Norfolk, and escorting families behind the scenes during the Changing of the Guard ceremony.

Before joining NoteWorthy, Nicola worked with the country’s finest venues and events providers, including the Athenaeum Hotel, Royal Ascot, RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Churchill War Rooms, the London 2012 Olympics and has arranged gigs for A-list musicians such as Rod Stewart.

Nicola became the proud owner of NoteWorthy in 2014.
