My interest in Revenue Management started when I began working as a Complex Reservations Agent in The Westin and Le Méridien City Centre Bahrain. When the Director of Revenue Management had taken maternity leave. The opportunity to learn and participate in the Daily Revenue Management task opened and was given to me. My love for numbers thrived in this environment and I look forward to the opportunity to build my Revenue Management career.
As a reservations agent I have learnt the importance of working in a team and have good communication skills.
I also have a Residence Permit for South Africa.
