Read what some of our learners, past and present, have to say about their experience of

studying with HOSPA and how the courses have helped them ...

Financial management:

"The HOSPA Financial Management course is one of the best things I have done and was definitely worth it.  The course tutors were fantastic and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to progress in hospitality finance.  


The course was a huge help in fully understanding the many different processes within the Finance Department, tailoring them to the hospitality sector.  This included many things such as forecasting techniques, the budget process, understanding KPI’s and ratio analysis to name but a few.  All of which were extremely important and the knowledge learned is used on a frequent basis.  


The course explains not just in a way for you to understand but also gives you the knowledge to explain things to non-financial colleagues in ways that they understand, which is a huge benefit to the hotel as a whole so that they can understand the importance of decisions and relevance it has to the business.”

Matthew Bennett, Financial Controller, Derbyshire Hotel, Countrywide Hotels

Revenue management:

“I am pulling ideas from the course that are helping input knowledge into my team as there are some great examples of why we need to do things a certain way and by seeing it in practice it helps with the understanding.


Though my background is predominantly events and reservations, I am looking to use the added knowledge to look at the different areas on the estate and within each business to see how my skills can help develop each area.”

Zena Carter, Revenue Manager, Farncombe Estate
