James Swallow about.me official
I am into the Hospitality Industry. Food, Cooking, Travel, and Cultures from different parts of the world are my passion, and I have converted this passion into my career. For ten years, I ran my Sea-food Restaurant in a Coastal town. And recently, around a year back, I have joined the Higher Management team of a Chain of Hotels. I was invited to join them at a General Manager role by the Owner of the Hotel Group herself. She had seen my work in my Restaurant, and also received a lot of positive reviews about me from her colleagues. Sadly, one of the reasons I was asked to join was that the Chain of Hotels is not doing so well in the last few years. Business has been going down, and the Management was looking for some good Operational Leadership to turn the Business around. And hence I came on board. I quickly took the reins in my hand and after studying the financials for six months; suggested a round of Higher Management meetings to discuss some solutions.
The Management meetings went on for a month. After intense debates and brainstorming, our Management came https://jamesswallow1.wordpress.com up with some solutions. I was not at all in favor of some of the proposals, but since the Board had agreed by democratic decision making, I did not have a choice. Management was kind enough to register all my objections and arguments against the proposed solutions. Anyway, once the Board decided to close the Management Meeting Agenda, we were all on the same page about giving it our best to implement the decisions.
One preferred solution was to open a new Luxury Hotel brand in the Middle East, starting with Abu Dhabi. The PRO Partner Group and James Swallow are well-reputed in the Middle East, and I have worked with them during my earlier work experience. We decided to bring in the expertise of James Swallow as a Consultant to help us enter the Middle East market. James Swallow was instrumental in aligning our Business Goals with the Working Environment of Abu Dhabi Regulatory Procedures. James Swallow is also the Commercial Director of the PRO Partner Group and that Group also gave us excellent support throughout our New Business establishment process.
Today we are completely set with our New Hotel Brand in Abu Dhabi, and I will recommend the Services of James Swallow and his team, to new business entrants in the Middle East Market.
