profile picture cv

I have more than ten years' experience in management and organisation within the Fine Food and Beverage, Hospitality, Hospitality IT, and Retail Industries. One of the strengths that has seen me excel throughout my vast experience in the management of luxury restaurants and hotels is my ability to relate to (and subsequently sell products and experiences to) people on a one-on-one or group basis. I graduated from the Damelin hotel school in 2003 and finished courses for the American Hotel and Lodging Association and received qualifications in Food and Beverage Management and Hotel/ Resort Management. My have passion for restaurants and the unique industry I’ve work in; whether it is exceptional cuisine, stylish décor, fantastic service and guest relations or dining ambience. I have been working in this industry for many years and feel that the position available offers me a chance to put all my knowledge, skills, understanding and experience into a new challenge and will be the right person to plan, arrange and execute the perfect experience for your members. This position not only appeals to my position within the industry and years of grooming but to my personality and this job seems to be the perfect opportunity I have been waiting to be afforded. From a guest service or client perspective, I have worked in high profile restaurants such as Paranga (Camps Bay) and Roots Restaurant (Top 10 Eat out Restaurant in S.A) where the A-list of Cape Town and the world would frequent and dine and I understand the necessary level of service and personal attention needed to make your guests, clients or travellers happy and give them the ultimate experience to your business. Within the Information Technology sector, I have loved working with so many diverse, intelligent and interesting people. Working online with social media platforms is not only interesting but also leaning and seeing how the world has been transformed due to this invention is fascinating. IT comes naturally to me and being very analytical and having a good photographic memory has made working with computer systems easier. I am able to troubleshoot methodically and logically and work out the solutions to problems. I am always in awe of any new technologies being created and I want to learn more about software programs and programming and expand my knowledge in this field. I have always been self-motivated and driven to succeed in all the roles I have fulfilled, but my career has naturally gravitated in the direction of Operations, Client Services, management functions and Sales, which is why I am seeking opportunities that will allow me to further explore, develop and nurture these natural skill-sets, whilst using my depth of professional experience in tandem or the right position within a similar industry to further make my mark. I am a cheerful, passionate, driven, active and assertive person. I like people and I demand success of myself. I want to achieve great things with great people.
