A leader’s first days and months in a new job are a whirlwind. Many new leaders choose to focus on the first 90 days as a critical window of time to acclimate themselves to their organisations, their new roles and to develop a better sense of what goals deserve top priority. Learn how to best approach the first 90 days as a senior leader and how best to set up this next phase of your career for success. Students will explore various leadership styles and approaches, engagement with culture systems and processes, and how to make a difference through impact.
In the present hospitality business environment, brands need to participate in and inspire a conversation with their consumers. Digital technology has rapidly evolved in the last decade and so, too, has the way people communicate. Converging contemporary literacies and traditional business models allows for effective consumer engagement ultimately winning customer advocacy. You will learn about this shift and how it has altered the way Hotels communicate with their audiences. You will also learn about the challenges of managing a Hotel brand and how rich and compelling content marketing, combined with omnichannel distribution, are integral to brand engagement.
Service innovation is a rapidly expanding area of practice. Within this area, design thinking is used as a collaborative method for working with key stakeholders within a hotel to formulate innovative approaches to the overall user experience. Consequently, service innovation has been considered as crucial in the hotel industry in order to gain competitive advantage. This project will allow students to take a solutions based and entrepreneurial approach to customer services challenges and present innovative solutions to these challenges.
Hotel Leaders are charged with making strategic and proactive decisions to increase occupancy, rates and total revenue for their properties. Applying a systematic process to such decision-making can increase their success. Students will learn to use various tools that will assist them in understanding customer demand at the micro market level, and achieve maximisation of revenue through pricing optimisation. Students will be required to interpret and utilise financial data to make revenue and yield decisions.
