I started off in Hospitality as a Housekeeper when i was 16. I loved getting to know all the guests and working with other people in different departments of the Hotel. I eventually got a job behind the bar in the Hotel, it was so much fun, different people every day, making different drinks, serving food and having chats with all the customers and hearing their stories. I was promoted to Supervisor at one of their other Hotels and also helped out at weddings and celebrations. I realised i was good at organising a team and service of food, I really enjoyed this and eventually when a new position opened at a new Hotel opening in Glasgow I applied for a restaurant position as I wanted to learn all aspects of food and drink. For my hard work and dedication I got promoted to Restaurant Supervisor and then Manager, I absolutely loved it. Over the years I worked in High end Restaurants and Hotels to gain more knowledge and skills and eventually I was offered a position of opening a new hotel and building a new team through recruitment and training. I found my new passion of training and development. I just love seeing people progress in their careers, From not knowing anything about Hospitality to now seeing them light up a room with their personality and their knowledge and skills or see them progress to Supervisor or Manager, it is what makes my job so worthwhile. I am dedicated to mentoring, coaching and training and bringing out the best in people, motivating and showing them that they can be great. Believe in yourself and you will succeed.
