I first worked with Vanessa more than 10 years ago when she hired me as a Spa Manager for a resort spa. We have worked off and on since then – most recently for 4 years when she was my APAC reporting director. Vanessa has been a key stakeholder in my career development. As I moved into cluster then regional roles, she was instrumental in expanding my commercial knowledge and financial acumen, allowing me to progress confidently with a sound foundation. Her skill in developing and nurturing talent through coaching and acting as a role model is very inspiring.
