Meet Vanessa Albest, Front Office Manager at Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa
Meet Vanessa Albest, Front Office Manager at Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa. Vanessa was recently featured in a fascinating story written by the Minister of Tourism & Culture of the Seychelles, Alain St.Ange, about her success in the tourism industry as a graduate in hospitality trade.
Vanessa joined the first cohort of students at the Seychelles Tourism Academy (STA) to study the Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Management where she received First Class Honors and won the Award in "Best Overall in Professional Subjects." The same year, she went to Shannon College in Ireland for her Bachelor's Degree in Business Studies in International Hotel Management and graduated in 2012 with First Class Honors, making her family and country proud.
At Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa, Vanessa quickly grew her career from a Resort Host to Front Office Manager. During her time at Hilton, Vanessa has successfully completed the Management Development Program level 1 and level 2, pending to attend level 3 next year.
Vanessa has also been exposed to other Hilton properties abroad when she attended the Front Office Academy in Dubai last year. "Vanessa Albest is a young and passionate individual who believes in achieving great things," Doreen D'Souza, the Manager Human Resources and Training said.
"We are so proud of Vanessa Albest," said Minister Alain St.Ange.
