As the Director of Sales & Marketing, Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort, how do you compete with other established properties?
Firstly, I have to build a foundation of a successful organization, which is building a strong and reliable team, and to develop each of their talents. I believe the key success of being a leader is to have a solid teamwork and getting support from the team. Secondly, we need to build a strong market positioning for the hotel and be creative in finding solutions for any challenges, focusing on generating revenue in any possible opportunities and to always try to stay ahead of the competition.
What do you enjoy most about working in the hospitality industry?
Being in a dynamic environment, meeting & serving different people every day (our guests), and the fact that we have to constantly be creative in whatever we do to strive into a better result. It’s never boring.
