HOSPA Hospitality Finance, Revenue and IT Professionals

What Our Learners Say

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

Kamila Lipnicka, Accounts Assistant, Radisson Blu Belfast:“As I have been working in finance for a relatively short period of time, I had quite limited knowledge and experience.  I knew the jobs and tasks I was doing on a daily basis but didn’t fully understand the overall processes. The HOSPA course helped me to gain the general knowledge of how the finances and accounts are managed in the hospitality industry, and helped me to understand the purpose of all the small tasks. Now I hope to gain an experience across the whole finance department.”

James Bland, Stock Controller & Accounts Assistant, The Cairn Hotel Group: "The course has given me the confidence in my own abilities and provided me with a range of skills and techniques which will allow me to further my career in accounts."

Sam Willetts, Transaction Management Assistant, Jurys Inns: "The course has helped me to gain a greater understanding of finance at a property level, compared to Head Office level."

Begona Manzanero, Accounts Payable Supervisor, Hilton on Park Lane: "The completion of HOSPA as reinforced my professional development in many different ways.  Apart from refreshing the technical knowledge acquired from the degree I previously studied, I have also learned new key aspects of the hospitality industry which has helped not only in my day to day duties at work, but also to develop my strategic and decision-making skills."

REVENUE MANAGEMENT

Zena Carter, Revenue Manager, Farncombe Estate: “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.”

Bethany Parker, Assistant Revenue Manager, Glasgow Cluster, Principal Hotels: “The HOSPA course has helped to develop my knowledge of Revenue Management and it has been really interesting learning the theory behind the practice.  I’ve learned lots of new theories, skills and techniques and look forward to implementing them into my day to day work.  Completing the course has definitely enhanced my skillset and developed my confidence in Revenue Management.”

Pankaj Khanna, Value Centre Manager, Thistle Barbican Hotel: "The detailed knowledge I got from the course on not only the Room Revenue side of the business but also on how important is to maintain your costs if you wish achieve the optimal profit will serve me well in future.
