The beginning chapters represent the early stages in one’s career while the progressive and latter parts are useful for managers of today or aspiring professionals in the making.     

This book was intended as a first volume of little treasures and as a grab book of advices for all aspiring hospitality professionals, who seek that extra advice before hand. These hard-won experiences, scenarios and insights shared, are meant to give a little advance to open one’s mindset before it is too late. Advices from the heart, to keep our luxury hospitality and golden era of travel alive, and assist in a successful luxury hospitality, restaurant or catering career.

The author is an experienced international luxury hotelier who wishes to share his knowledge gained over a 25-year career to benefit others in the hospitality industry and to satisfy some of the questions of those curious about what happens behind the scenes in a restaurant or luxury hotel.

Based on the stage in your career, it is best read from front to back or back to front.
