I am a Hospitality Leader with extensive experience in Operations and Business Development in Food & Beverage and Hotel sectors. Over the course of my career, I have developed professional experience in international settings across the USA and the Asia Pacific. I have successfully managed daily operations by increasing revenue, maximising profit, enhancing the guest experience, and consistently upholding brand standards. Additionally, I have demonstrated business planning, budgeting, and forecasting skills. I have learned through my professional experience that having the right people and the right systems in place is essential for achieving success. I also strongly believe in providing intuitive hospitality by understanding the needs of guests, team members, and people in general. Key contributions and Career highlights in my time: ' Led a team of over 80 members front and back-of-house operations across four venues in Singapore.
