General Manager, Louis Imperial Beach, Paphos, Cyprus,
"I am grateful to 'Swiss Hotel Management School' for providing me with an outstanding educational
During my time at 'SHMS', I gained a fruitful knowledge of hospitality as well as many skills across all areas of the industry such as Food and Beverage, Cookery, Front of Office, Human resources, Accounting, Finance and Management. I also had a real-life experience doing an internship in Switzerland.
After my graduation, I had the opportunity to work with well known chains both internationally and locally as well as I had the chance and luck to cooperate with successful people. My education and
working 'hard' experience helped me to achieve my dreams in an early age. Always, I knew that I wanted to become a successful Hotelier. The idea of meeting and talking with people from around the world, serving them and, of course, exceeding their expectations, seemed so natural to me.
My motto in life and advice for current students is to be positive, focused and determined about their dreams and the success will come. The hospitality industry is not a regular, easy job; it is a lifestyle. It is important to have a genuine passion for service and an eye for detail. You need personality, thorough knowledge of the job and good communication skills. More importantly, however, you need to be transparent and honest in your approach. 'Think outside the box', know what you want, be positive, focused and determined about your goals, and the results will follow."
