Tell us a bit about your career in hospitality/ technology and the journey to STAAH
Technology is my passion because it treats everyone equally. Availability and benefits of technology are independent on gender, religion, business, or who you are. I believe this is a double bonus for me as I get to live my passion every day for the industry that I work for.
I come with over 9 years of experience in the hospitality space, it all started from being a guest service agent in a hotel to managing sales and business development of software solutions for the accommodation providers. I specialize in driving sales target, maintaining healthy customer relationships, connecting to people, time management and organization.
What do you like most about STAAH and your job?
I got the opportunity to join STAAH in July 2021. I won’t deny that my first impression of STAAH Product Portfolio was the features of the flagship product – The Channel Manager, while I compared it to distribution solutions of leading tech providers in the industry, I must say STAAH is right there at the top, we have the most feature-rich and advanced distribution solution.
I appreciate being a part of a team that is the driving force behind long-term growth and success in the world of tourism, simply because technology helps expedite numerous bookings, automate complex operations and make the hotelier’s life a lot easier – ensuring a steady growth of the industry.
That’s why today I’ll be putting all of this into a perspective by enabling the accommodation providers to integrate technology and solutions into their growth strategy to drive better results.
Your success mantra?
“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life”
When you are passionate about what you do, you will do it even when you are not getting paid. You will thrive to do it better each day with more efforts and enthusiasm to obtain better results. And that’s what makes you successful.
Your interests outside STAAH. Do they help you do your job better?
I love to travel and have got a dream to travel the world one fine day. Travel takes us out of our comfort zones, inspiring us to see, taste and avail new experiences. It challenges us, not only to adapt and explore new surroundings but also to engage with different people – cultures, customs and food. Travel allows us to embrace adventures as they come and to share new and meaningful experiences along with our friends and loved ones.
I love visiting Art galleries, it makes me aware of world geography, showcasing life, cultures, communities and people. Sometimes Art galleries makes me look at the outside world differently.
I also love to explore new places by walking and experiencing something local. It’s more exciting for me if I go to a place where they don’t speak English. That’s the best way to learn about a new culture, try to understand their norms and values.
