The Hospitality industry isn’t immune to the evolution of digital technology and neither is society. We are at a unique point in history where we are able to inspire two-way conversations with customers, to gain their engagement and advocacy. As part of this short course, you’ll learn more about the opportunities presented by this rapid shift in digital technology, and how it has forever 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.

Do you lead the way when it comes to creating the best experiences possible for your guests? Service innovation is a rapidly expanding area of practice and crucial source of competitive differentiation. In this course, you’ll learn about design thinking, and how it can be used to bring together key stakeholders to collaborate and formulate innovative approaches to the overall guest experience. You’ll take an entrepreneurial approach to customer service challenges and present fresh solutions to create guest experiences that surprise, delight, and surpass expectations.

As a leader in a hotel environment, you’ll be measured on your ability to increase optimise revenue. Being able to think on your feet is a given, but there’s a bit of a science to it too. During this course, you’ll learn how to make strategic, proactive decisions as well as a systematic process you can always return to. Learn to use various tools to understand customer demand, interpret financial data and, most importantly, increase revenue and optimise yield.
