More details about your skills
My different experiences abroad allowed me to become polyvalent and be able to work in different areas.
I love anything related to water and worked for 4 years as a scuba diving instructor.
I have also worked 5 years in Management (2 years managing a dive shop in the Philippines and 3 years a restaurant in Sydney). I absolutely love guest service. I used to train also regularly new staff - so love to teach! Handling groups is also not an issue and I love taking customers on tour & guiding.
I am quite creative and always interested in trying to develop new ideas on how to attract customers, retain them, work on wildlife protection as well as involving younger generations on environmental issues and so on...
Regarding horses, I have been riding over 10 years and worked also in horses environments. Not afraid of getting my hands in the dirt.
I wouldn't say I am Mc Guyver but I am always eager to learn and keen to help out when it comes to fix broken things.
