“There are so many awesome opportunities available to someone who is thinking of starting a career in hospitality and no day is ever the same in our business! My advice to someone new in the industry now would be to be as flexible as possible.

Katya Torres de la Rocha

“My advice is ‘Just do it!’ For so long hospitality has not been taken seriously as a career option and seen as work that is temporary or part-time while you work on your ‘real’ career, but it’s an amazing, fun, and fulfilling option for a career.

“I believe that the behaviours of hospitality in practice are the one thing that can truly change the world. Every smile, every “good morning” and every “I hope to see you again soon” is a step in the right direction to making the world a kinder and more welcoming place,”

Sandia Chang

“The pursuit of perfection and the importance of looking after your staff. It is important that I carry on the legacy that he has instilled in me. I believe that if I continue to do what he has taught me and am successful, I will be able to give the people who worked for me the tools they need to be successful as well. ”
