Tell us a bit about your career in hospitality/ technology and the journey to STAAH
“I met Gavin once at a party on a terrace and he was just about to introduce the Product – Review Minder, His passion and the twinkle in his eyes to make a difference is something that I resonate much with. That meeting somewhere stayed with me for long. Many years later and having known Tarun for long, I accompanied Tarun to a Make My Trip Party and was taken aback with the respect that STAAH and Tarun commanded in the Hospitality Industry.”
Respect can only be earned, so I would say – the software boom and an opportunity to provide optimum yield to the hospitality industry by offering some highly advanced technology lured me to STAAH, that’s when I expressed my wish to be associated with the Brand.
“I am glad to part of a movement and played a small role in the road of the success journey of STAAH.”
