What is the best piece of advice you can give other hoteliers who want to win a Hotelier Award?
If anyone working in the hotel industry wins an award it is great recognition of their achievements, but it is usually a team effort as no one can win without the support of the other individuals they work with.

Still working in the hospitality industry; but I like a simple life so my key goals are to be happy and healthy doing a job I enjoy; and I have that all at the moment. I do not wish to rule the world
