At Carden Park our ethos is to ‘grow our own’, we ensure that our team has the opportunity to develop within their roles and HOSPA has been a big part of this for our finance and food and beverage teams.
The course has really helped me to understand the theory behind the practice of Hotel Revenue Management, and putting the knowledge I gained to practice throughout the Revenue Management course also helped me to increase occupancy and ADR in my previous role as a Reservations Manager at the Alona Hotel.
The course allowed me to take what I knew purely in practice and apply it in a structured theoretical and strategic manner.
The main advantage of the course is being able to link this all back to the text and resource material. Some finance courses are generic, however with HOSPA the examples and case studies are relatable to our industry, allowing you to take learnings from the studies and apply them to your own working environment.
The course has opened more doors for me professionally. It’s a widely recognised qualification that I’ll have on my CV for life, and it’s given me a full and broad understanding of the finance function within the hospitality industry.
The HOSPA course allowed me to gain additional knowledge about Total Revenue Management, while using different assignments to apply theoretical knowledge to my current set of properties. It also provided access to an impressive set of learning resources.
