THREE HASHTAGS THAT DESCRIBE YOU:

#globetrotter #multicultural #driven

 

BEST MEMORIES OF YOUR COURSES AT VATEL:

The entrepreneurial strategies course. It taught me how to formulate an idea and how to defend it.

 

YOUR BEST INTERNSHIP MEMORY:

I succeeded in gaining the trust of my managers during my F&B Assistant internship at Hyatt group’s Hotel du Louvre.

 

Then they entrusted me with the responsibility of putting new procedures in place. 

 

YOUR DEFINITION OF A DUTY MANAGER’S JOB:

Ensuring and maintaining the highest quality in a hotel for its guests. A Duty Manager is linked to all the departments in a hotel: rooms division, the front desk, restaurant services, guest relations, human resources, sales, finance, general management, etc.

 

2 HANDS-ON MISSIONS IN YOUR JOB: 

  • A special welcome for my VIP guests
  • Quality control in all the public areas and coordination of the communication between departments

 

2 OFFICE MISSIONS IN YOUR JOB: 

  • Updating and qualifying client files
  • Filing, analyzing and managing complaints              

 

2 SUBJECTS TAUGHT AT VATEL THAT YOU USE EVERY DAY:

  • Human resource management
  • Cross-cultural communication  

 

YOUR FAVORITE TIME AND PLACE AT THE HOTEL:

Talking with the guests at the pool. That’s when I can ask them how their stay is and let them give me their impression.

 

THREE THINGS YOU LOVE ABOUT MIAMI: 

  • The beaches are beautiful, the water is clean and it’s a fun-filled city
  • There’s never a day when you don’t have a musical, sporting or cultural event.
  • The many different cultures who live in the city let you work, go out with and meet people from all over the world!
