Self described as having an over-developed and over-sensitive sense of responsibility, there are few individuals that possess the drive, intuition, passion, and commitment to excellence that I have.
Guided by strong instincts to see things done extraordinarily well, I have been blessed to have experienced and been given the opportunities to develop a strong imagination, develop lasting and meaningful relationships both at home and in the work place, and to continue to lead the way with enlightened and leading edge management and leadership skills.
Of my 7 years at Bed Supperclub, HIGHLIGHTS include:
Responsible for overseeing all of the Sukhumvit Soi 11 Association Events which included the "Soi 11 Earth Hour Clean Up" and the 3 Soi 11 Thai Zombie Walks. The Sukhumvit Soi 11 events were also tied in with local charities.
Led a vast reduction of employee turnover and increased staff and management morale with the implementation of Positive Energy Work policies and Morale Boosting practices.
Increased staff productivity and company revenues with regularly scheduled Recognition Rewards.
Helped lead our in-house magazine, Bed Sheets, to greater visibility, on-line presence, and profitability in 2008.
Able to use my theatrical background to help see things from differing angles and encouraged more "out of the box" thinking and a greater sense of imagination.
My theatrical background coupled with my leadership history has blessed me with a greater creative vs. analytical (right brain vs left brain) and very well balanced mindset.
Drawing on both my experiences abroad and at Bed, wrote and implemented staff manuals that included individual manuals for the bartenders, barbacks, floor service, cashiers, security, and all new employees.
In collaboration with TAT, published my first book, Tipple Thai, a cocktail book using local Thai ingredients in August, 2005.
Helped manage cost controls for food, beverages, and labor, expense budgets, and quality control.
Monitored security measures and loss prevention and coordinated facility maintenance and upkeep.
Had the wonderful opportunity of working alongside mentor Bill Black, former Director of Bed Management.
Established the Bed World VIP Card Program in 2008.
Fully responsible for all sponsorship financial support. In 2010, this financial amount topped 10 million baht.
Led all "Greening" and environmentally conscious efforts including the Locavore Menus, "Green Envy Fridays," "Let it Breathe" Weekends and all partnerships with leading green initiative efforts including Plant-A-Tree Today Foundation.
Active contributor to Bed Sheets Magazine, including features "In the Mix" and the Bed World VIP feature.
Responsible for creating new sources of external revenue including catering, consulting, take-away foods, and "On-Location" events.
