"The Ascent programme has been a rewarding journey of self-growth and development. In just a year, I have become more confident in my abilities and learnt valuable skills from the senior leaders in Vietnam and now in the Maldives. This experience has taught me a lot about leadership, compassion, patience and resilience to achieve my goals even when times are as uncertain as they are now with Coronavirus."

“My vision was always to be the person revolutionising the hospitality industry by delivering world-class service at all times while respecting the local culture and people. I joined the Ascent Graduate Journey because it offers the framework and platform to achieve that specific goal. While in the programme, I had the privilege to be coached by senior mentors as well as explore diverse cultures. From the desert of Abu Dhabi to the blue lagoon of Portugal, I am now the Assistant Front Office Manager at the breathtaking Al Baleed Resort Salalah in Oman”
