About me

I'm a hospitality professional with years of experience in a range of organisations, who holds a degree of MSc in Tourism and Hospitality from the University of Sunderland, England, as well as WSET Level 2 Intermediate in Wines and Spirits. During my recent roll I was privileged be a part of the team and in-charge of welcoming delegates of high profile events such as Art Dubai, Dubai film festival, World economic forum, GPCA summit and World Arab economic forum of which I was personally involved and handled the relevant requirements and guest requests.

As a team leader at Madinat Jumeirah ressort, I have demonstrated strong leadership qualities by supervising my team in a manner that ensured impeccable grooming, attention to detail and customer satisfaction were adhered to the hotel’s standards. This resulted in several positive LQA/Mystery shopper audits of which I have been recognised through “colleague of the month” and certificate of appreciations. Furthermore, as I'm passionate on training and people development I was recognized and assigned as departmental trainer, where I utilised my in-depth knowledge of food and beverage to train the new recruits and evaluate any training needs in order to design the appropriate training programs as required.

Currently, I'm exploring new opportunities within the hospitality industry, which will enable me to utilise my experience in contributing to achieving organisations goals and objectives, whilst developing further professionally.
