BEST MEMORIES OF VATEL:
No doubt, the organization of our fashion show for charity. A project at the end of our studies, with ups and downs, that we were lucky enough to make it happen. Once again, I was able to use what I’d learned in my academic courses and I learned how to stretch my own limits.
YOUR BEST INTERNSHIP MEMORY:
My training Sofitel brand values, when I was the Assistant Sales and Banquets Manager at the 5* Sofitel Golfe d'Ajaccio Thalassa Sea & Spa. That was my first experience in a globally known hotel chain.
I was impressed to be a part of such a large entity, with its hierarchy. I understood the importance of having standards and procedures to maintain a long-term standards and boost client loyalty.
Working in an independent hotel with all the best practices in my mind for hospitality in a hotel chain, gives me the impression of knowing how to bring the best of two worlds together.
