Ingrid is the owner of her own business, Ingrid Diesel Consulting & Events, a company which specialises in the golf and hospitality industry. Ingrid’s business was established 3,5 years ago and therefore this profile covers a great deal of the past 20 years of Ingrid’s career in the golf and hospitality industry, most of which was as the Chief Executive Officer of the Fancourt Resort, a career which involved her being at the helm of the resort for over 15 years.
Ingrid Diesel Consulting & Events offers a complete service in terms of Event Management, Tour Management, Conference and Executive meeting management, and hospitality development – all involving the game of golf. The company specialises in a niche market, thereby offering top quality services and experiences.
The many years of experience gained at the helm of the Fancourt Resort involved an extensive growth and development phase, and Ingrid played the main leading role in this growth. The pressure of managing a staff of 700 on an estate of 800 ha, and development costs which totalled over R850m, became a way of life for Ingrid, one which has developed into her most valued asset. Ingrid has built a vast network of professional and business relationships along the way, which will be of great value in future projects.
Ingrid’s responsibilities covered the operation of the entire Resort, and her extensive experience and involvement in a developing resort, which includes a 150 bedroom hotel (with conference centre and health & beauty spa), 4 golf courses and real estate, has given her an in-depth knowledge of what it takes to become the Best Resort in the World (awarded to Fancourt in December 2003 by IAGTO – the International Association of Golf Tour Operators).
