In my academic and career path until today I took every opportunity to learn and grow. Having an aptitude for sports I studied Physical Education and Sports Science. From the beginning of my career I was assigned responsible roles which also involved team management. My ability to coordinate and motivate others and my dedication to high-standard results are two of my strongest assets, and are often being praised by both associates and customers.
For the last 13 years I have been working in the hospitality industry as member of a leading hotel and spa. The daily interaction with VIP customers from all over the world, the commitment to excellence and my involvement also in business and management matters, have proven a truly valuable experience.
I was recently working as a Sales G, C& E executive in Sales and Marketing at Hilton Reading.I consider it to be a very usuful tool for coming closer to guest satisfaction in a different department that I was used to.
Fulfilling administrative and executive duties of Sales and being a Guest ambassador likewise, I am more motivated to extend my hospitality skills. Having strong people and organizational skills I have always enjoyed organizing and ensuring people’s engagement and satisfaction. My quote is to keep on chasing knowledge, focus on inner and interactive respect, show empathy, understanding and lastly, seize the opportunity arising every day to become a better person and achieve memorable things.THINK BIG!
