Moving on from Revenue Management to a Trainer and Coach

Jonathan Low has been a dear friend for many many years. In fact it was Jonathan who actually helped point the direction to go study Swiss Hotel Managemet at Hotel Institute Montreux, Switzerland back in 1990s.

Yeah lor he was the “senior” there, though we never got a chance to meet cos when he graduated, that was when I was sent over to Montreux.

But it was great, cos he found a church and a common friend in whom he introduced me too, so that at least there was a place of worship that i could go despite being in Switzerland. Swiss is an awesome country with rich history and with snow capped mountains all round. Montreux is a valley and during the cold periods we would get temperatures hitting 4 degres Celcius. But i digress … oh yes one more vivid point about Switzerland, those days, there was no internet, or skype or MSN … i had to go to the PPT (Post Office) and will see 5 Swiss Francs get swallowed up in mere seconds each time i gave a call home to the family! 🙂 That was Switzerland .. land flowing with rich dark (Lindt) chocolcate and cheese … and very expensive place to live!

Anyway … we met back in Malaysia when i finally got home and he was at the Hilton when I was at Shangri-La KL, then he moved on to Renaissance and finally to the ParkRoyal KL. We had regular meets (lunchies spiked with poems) with all the other Revenue Directors in KL. Those are fun times! (hmmm still waiting for the next Revenue Director to host a lunch!)

So what did you know, when I received a mail from Jon stating .. okies.. i won’t be in Park Royal anymore. 

I was like huh? Where you going? Which hotel are you moving on too?  

I am glad that Jon has chosen a path of his passion .. moving away from Revenue Managemenet to something that he loves in Training and Coaching people to be leaders of their own areas.

So if you’re looking for a good Trainer & Coach with experiences in the Hospitality Industry …  give Jonathan Low a call … for more info click on his profile (pic above).
