Mi chiamo Lorenzo Monaco,
Come si puo' evincere dal mio percorso lavorativo, ho acquisito una significativa esperienza nel settore ristorazione/ alberghiero, specializzandomi nella figura di Restaurant Manager. Ciò mi ha permesso di dirigere e formare diversi team di lavoro, partecipando quindi direttamente alla crescita e allo sviluppo del business.
Attualmente sono alla ricerca di una nuova interessante opportunita' che possa permettemi di crescere ulteriormente mettendomi, ovviamente, a completa disposizione del progetto. Completano il mio profilo capacità di problem solving, orientamento alla clientela e spiccata attitudine alle relazioni interpersonali, grazie anche ad una forte multiculturalità sviluppata nel mio percorso lavorativo e alla perfetta conoscenza della lingua Inglese.
