Why Choose to work in Hospitality & Tourism Industries

Some case examples chosen :

Market Vice President and General Manager Miami

Tuni Kyi –Life experiece

Whilst studying I supported myself working as a dishwasher in a restaurant. I moved to being a short order cook and soon rose to be assistant restaurant manager.

One year later I joined the Marriott, Over the last 20 years I have held a number of positions wit new hotels being opened all over the world

From being a general manager and then two years later the area Vice President for China

Looking back I never dreamed I would attain this level of success.

Its been a great and rewarding career.

Director Of Studies LBBA Ms Shmina Mandal MBA MCIM FABE

My first few years of work was experience gained whilst working and managing a 90 bedroom hotel in Kensington, London.

Most people do not start to work as early as I did  but this became a rewarding experience as I found it to be the most exciting and memorable years of my life. All the staff including management had to be multi skilled and to be able to think quickly and practically. Every day was a different experience and never a dull moment.

Over the years of working at the hotel one important lesson I have learnt

You’ ve got to walk the talk every step of the way, because you are always on stage whether you’re behind closed doors in meetings or you’re out on the lobby floor.

And it also means leading with your heart and not your head.

Despite the many courses offered at LBBA the Hotel Management Course is close to my heart and I would advice students to embark on it knowing the potential and the exciting career progression it can involve worldwide.

Decide what you want to do and make it happen” and we will support you.

Erica Qualls General Manager - USA

My part time telephone job led to other opportunities and then having completed my Hotel management Diploma

It lead me to the hotel’s front office, housekeeping, accounting, human resource.

And then I was offered the chance to become the assistant general manager

Today I am the General manager of a large hotel 1800 rooms and responsible for a $1oo million year operation.

I would say “its like running a small city”

Reflecting on this I tell young people take risks. Don’t allow fear to overcome your desire to move on the next level.

 

Albert “Smitty” Smith Marriot –Sports Ambassador

My Job has given me unbelievable opportunities …and the opportunity to build lasting relationships with some truly remarkable people.

I have worked with many sports figures and shared some exciting times with famous figures.

You could say celebrity treatment is my specialty.

Sambonn – Head bar tender

Stirred But Not Shaken

A good magician never reveals his secrets but as a bar tender my secrets are easy to share

Its having a sense of humor, warm smile and the ability to make the most colourful and exciting cocktails.

Best thing about the job is the customer interaction and over time knowing the regulars and their choice.
