“Whatever you’re seeking, a promotion, an excellent crucial conversation or greater executive presence, you have to trust in your ability to develop and grow under the support of a credentialed coach, or you’ll be potentially oblivious to possibilities and miss out on chances.” – Damian ten Bohmer
We wanted you to get to know Damian a bit better, so we asked him a few questions to understand his vision of hospitality.
Why do you think hospitality is a good career choice right now?
It’s a people business, there is also a big demand for travel after all the Covid-19 Lockdowns so there will be plenty of people wanting to travel. The industry also teaches you a lot about yourself and others.
What advice would you share with younger people who just started a career in hospitality?
Stick with it, there are at times long and hard hours, but the actual job is a unique one, we serve people and look after guests or patrons during the highs and lows, it’s extremely rewarding but you only get out of it what you are willing to put in.
What is your secret to a good career and personal development plan?
