Strictly Business

 
What is your role at RoomPriceGenie?

My role is Business Development representative and I have been with RoomPriceGenie since the beginning of July 2022. Although I did get a chance to meet all the team before I started in Tenerife during their Team Holidays!

What is your background?
My background is in Hospitality. Focused mainly on hotels working in Front of house, F&B and Management.
What do you think makes the RoomPriceGenie solution unique?

Its easy to use and its automated… you set it up and let it work for you. On top of that, our main focus is – small to medium sized independent hotels who always end up losing to bigger chains as they do not have as much staff to do the different jobs.

What is something that hotel owners have to deal with that you want to fix?

How much time is spent making decisions and ensure they don`t miss out on revenue that they could easily get if they used dynamic pricing.

What’s the coolest thing you are working on right now?

Being one of the newest members at RoomPriceGenie, I have completed my onboarding and as a result, got to meet the whole team and travel to the office in Germany which was very exciting 😀 Currently I’m working in setting up my home office to ensure I am as productive as I can be and have all the right tools for my job!

What is your favorite and least favorite thing about working in hospitality technology?

My favorite thing is the endless possibilities we have with technology evolving every day and my least favorite thing is how hard sometimes it is to convince some people that the software would be SOOOO helpful for them but they just do not want to even listen…

 

A little more…

 
What are the values that drive you?

My goals, success, self-confidence.

What three words would your friends use to describe you?

Loud, crazy and energetic!

What’s the best advice you were ever given?
You never get a second chance at a first impression. Make it count and don’t f*ck it up.
If you could write a book about your life, what would the title be? 

Live and Let Live.

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend? 

Going to the beach if I can!! or maybe having a few drinks if not you can find me watching movies and series or doing a bit of gaming.
