Sam Togwell, Dual Site Hotel Manager at hub by Premier Inn
Next up is Sam Togwell who, much like Beki, started off as a waitress as a casual thing. However, after earning her own money and realising she loved what she did, she never went back!
Since working for hub by Premier Inn, Sam’s worked a variety of different roles from reception to Food & Beverage, and eventually progressed to become a Dual Site Hotel Manager for the Soho and Covent Garden hubs.
Sam now loves to see those who work hard at her hotels flourish in their own careers! Read more of her interview here.
Brenda Andrini, Group Bar Manager, Granger & Co.
Last but not least, we had the pleasure of interviewing Brenda Andrini, who went from Barista to Bar Manager of of all 4 London Granger & Co. venues.
Starting off with making coffee (with not a lot of prior experience), Brenda quickly learnt how much she enjoyed just that and got more and more involved! Her passion for her job grew, but it was only after joining Granger & Co. that she decided to make a real career out of hospitality.
Brenda revealed that the work environments she’d come from were very male-led, and only guys seemed to be applying for the Bar Manager role at Granger & Co… but after receiving support from her manager, she went after the role. And look where she is now! Read more about her story here.
