Celebrating Success! < back

Written by Jane Scott

Congratulations to all our award winners who were recently recognised at the HOSPA Annual Learner Awards Ceremony held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in the presence of over 70 distinguished guests from the industry.

Prizes were awarded to each of the stand-out learners in each of the three stages of both the Financial and Revenue Management courses, making 12 prize winners in all.

The awards then acknowledged the two ‘Outstanding Overall Learners’:

·         Maria Gutierrez Mondragon in Financial Management - Accounts Assistant at Delta Norton Park Operations (pictured below left with her colleagues)

·         Kris Franklin in Revenue Management - a Cluster Revenue Manager for Amaris Hospitality (pictured below right with her team)


Gretchen Abrahams from Mantis Management in South Africa was also recognised for her exceptional final project on the impact of segmentation on total revenue per available room by employing a targeted marketing strategy.

Also recognised were two employers for their outstanding commitment to education in the hospitality industry - Jurys Inns & Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland for Financial Management and Hoseasons Ltd for Revenue Management.

HOSPA were delighted to welcome two international learners – Hien Nguyen and Yan Zhang – who travelled from Vietnam and Dubai respectively in order to receive their awards in person.  Hien and Yan are pictured in the heading receiving their awards from Harry Murray, HOSPA President.

The award ceremony was preceded by a panel debate discussing the challenges of recruiting and retaining revenue and financial management professionals required to support business operations and afterwards, guests were treated to an afternoon high tea.
