Why you joined HR in Hospitality?

I first joined HR in Hospitality a number of years ago in order to expand my professional network within industry. I was thrilled when I was offered a place on the committee as it has allowed me to get to know my fellow HR colleagues both on a professional and personal level. HR in Hospitality run so many great events throughout the year which are both informative, interactive and often fun with drinks, canapes and networking thrown in; you not only get to attend great events but also see some amazing hotels and venues.

How would your best friend describe you?

Dependable, loyal, reliable with a dry sense of humour and incredibly quick witted (especially after a glass of wine).
