Silvia Cantarella – Founder
I have had the pleasure to learn from the best experts in the industry and I have worked for some of the most prestigious hotels, all with complex and challenging properties. At the same time, I cultivated my passion for Revenue management by leveraging all the opportunities to grow that were available, including training and consultancy.
I decided to create this network to give a voice to all the restless and passionate professionals out there, that are willing to bring their invaluable contribution on the topics they are experts on.
We are not traditional consultants, we come from hotel operations and we are currently working in hotels. We understand the struggles and needs of hoteliers: their necessity, at times, to get flexible and concrete support from who is living and facing the same challenges on the day to day operations.
We do not sell software, models, theories or automation: we bring concrete expertise and ourselves: knowledgeable and passionate professionals.”
