Anne Marie Hannan has been working in the hospitality industry for 20 years and she understands the value of helping women in this field.

She says: “We launched the FLI initiative because there is an obvious gap between female and male leadership representation in the region.”

Hannan has also been involved in the launch of Tahseen, a leadership training programme to develop local talent within the hospitality industry, into two new markets, with the aim to develop it and grow the applications.

She explains: “We want to continue to continue the females on the next leg of their female leadership journey. Continue to diversify the talent pool that is coming into the company.”
