On this episode we hear from Alison. She has a career in finance working on hospitality businesses. But she studied politics at university, which actually did come to good use for reporting writing and communication skills. It was during her time at Deloitte on their graduate trainee program where she learnt her craft and her love of understanding how businesses operate profitably. We discussed the importance of how all teams and departments with hospitality need to collaborate for a successful business. Everyone is different and everyone has a different skillset and experience to bring to the table. She is using her experiences to educate, consult and guide hospitality businesses in finance. Whilst we both love a spreadsheet, when interacting with hospitality business owners, its important to remember that whatever you want to communicate needs to be readable on your phone.
