A farewell function and afternoon tea was held on Friday 6th July with a large group of staff present to warmly send Sebastian off on his travels round the world. Each department presented their own 'send-off' for Sebastian amidst a few tears, high emotion and some laughter.
New General Manager, Jeeva Jeeva-Nanthan officially 'took over the reins' and in his opening speech said:
"Seb is not a typical Hotel General Manager. He is an excellent GM but in addition is the Systems programmer, THS Guru and his more recent passion - CRM guru. He does this all well because of the passion he has for his job. Bidding you Bon Voyage not Good Bye... On my part I look forward to working with all of you".
Extract from Sebastian's farewell speech:
"...I used to wonder what it was that made Jet Park Special - was it the excellent rooms, and facilities, was it the food, was it the location, was it a combination of all of those things? To me the answer is - the people. We are a family together with a common goal to achieve exceptional hospitality. All of you have skills and can bring passion and care for our guests - but all of you can also choose to bring 'heart'. By heart I mean 'love' for your work, for making someone's day, for each other, and for doing something for someone else - that makes their day that bit better. That's the magic that makes guests feel special and cared for... That magic is why I feel like Jet Park is a great place to work...
Jeeva, is a man with heart, a man with such a passion for people, and hospitality. The perfect person to lead Jet Park Hotel on the next chapter..."
We all wish you the very best Seb, and Bon Voyage!
