Graduated in Science and Culture of Gastronomy and Food Service in Italy, and then awarded with a Master’s Degree in International Hotel and Tourism Management at Oxford Brookes University, I am an enthusiastic hospitality professional, with a strong passion for food and travelling. My studies abroad allowed me to achieve a professional fluency in the English language as well as cultural acclimatization and solid adaptation skills.
I am a determined, self-motivated person that works hard and ethically in order to achieve my personal goals. Alongside with this self and personal commitment, I consider teamwork one of my greatest key qualities: working in a team discloses my confident, communicative and persuasive side that enables the team to enhance teambuilding, communication and efficiency in order attain high business performance. I am able to create a work environment of trust and enthusiasm by confidently manage and train my staff. I strongly believe in this persistent and flexible approach, and to the mutually beneficial achievements of business objectives and personal goals. I am adaptable to challenging situations and I enjoy competition as self-improvement. I am a good team worker able to act and make decisions under pressure, remaining calm and calculative in order to effectively cope with problems. I am punctual and well organized and I always make plans ahead in order to have a real control of my time. Flexibility, communication, team leadership, organization, stress management and problem solving are among my top qualities.
The development of my academic knowledge alongside with my work experience has been my first goal during these years, with the scope of achieve a solid preparation and effectiveness for a managerial role in the hospitality industry. I am currently looking for a graduate scheme/internship in office/administration in Hospitality Companies.
