Fred (Ex Marriott)

The genuine kindness and openness on the platform is so refreshing. You can really connect with anyone, no matter where you are in your career. The extra benefit is connecting with anyone from anywhere in the world!

Harriet (Too Good To Go)
- Mentor

I love how on Otolo you can be yourself and post what you feel, it is much less formal than LinkedIn. Coming from a recruitment background I spent my life on LinkedIn, but Otolo has something really organic about it.

Catrina (Mandarin Oriental Hotel)
- Mentor

I am a strong supporter of building and growing your communities in the hospitality industry. I’ve met some life-long friends through Otolo and was offered opportunities through the platform when I was out of work during the pandemic.

Regina (Mentee)
- Mentee

Breaking into a new sector can be really daunting so it helps to know someone. I really appreciate the advice and support so far, I’m looking to start a career in HR within hospitality. It was so lovely meeting the team on the Speed Mentoring Event.
