27 October 2013 President Shaun Ryan
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.
Les Clefs d'Or New Zealand is very pleased to welcome 3 new members to our Society, who were all successfull at the October interviews. They are;
Mr Marcos Carneiro from the Hilton Hotel Auckland
Mr David Tabor from SKYCITY Hotel
Mr Bambi Wichman from SKYCITY Hotel
Marcos, David and Bambi all showed the necessary service qualities that are required to wear the gold crossed keys of a Les Clefs d'Or Concierge.
My thanks go to our Director of Membership Mr Kris Mosch and the Interview Committee for a very well organised interview process. Our next intake is in April 2014. Application deadlines for this intake are in March 2014.
The Hotel Concierge Trade Show "Meet the Region" will take place on Monday the 18th of November at the Heritage Hotel Auckland. The trade show is another great opportunity for tourism operators and hotel suppliers to network with hotel concierges. Invitations are also being extended to staff of hotels without Les Clefs d'Or members as well as hospitality schools and iSite staff.
If you are interested in attending "Meet the Region" please do not hesitate to contact our Secretary Mr Daniel Marsh to avoid any dissapointment.
Cruise Ship season has begun in New Zealand, and this year looks like another busy one, and is sure to keep hotel concierges busy through until the end of March.
The 60th UICH International Congress is fast approaching and is less than 11 weeks away. The Congress will be held in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia from the 10th to the 16th of January 2014. After hosting the last Congress earlier this year in Queenstown, it will be refreshing to be able to attend this Congress as a delegate rather than a host. I can certainly appreciate all the hard work that the Concierge of Malaysia are putting into their 61st Congress right now.
If at any time you think that I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
In service through friendship,
Shaun Ryan - President of Les Clefs d’Or New Zealand
Chief Concierge - SKYCITY Hotel
