Cap Vermell Group, represented by its Director of Communications and Marketing, Lucila Siquier, her Communications Assistant, Cristina Beteta, and the Director of Cap Vermell Country Club and Financial Director of the group, Jaume García, has presented a talk offering guidance and information on the hospitality industry to around a hundred students from the 2nd of ESO course (13-14 year olds) from the Juníper Serra High School in Palma.
The participating students, who are currently working on a project called ‘Muntam un hotel a Eivissa, t’hi apuntes?’ (We’re setting up a hotel in Ibiza. Do you want to join us?) that seeks to give an insight into the world of the hotel trade and the island of Ibiza, talked with all the members of Cap Vermell Group and put their questions and queries to them on different topics.
Both Lucila Siquier, who has many years’ experience as a Hotel Director behind her, and Cristina Beteta, with a professional trajectory linked to the hospitality industry in Ibiza and more recently in Majorca after having worked at the Park Hyatt Mallorca, contributed their ideas and knowledge on the sector and clarified questions raised by the youngsters, eager to learn what skills are needed to be a Hotel Director, how you can know if a hotel works, what are the parameters to follow when selecting an effective human resources team, and what is the best and the worst thing about working in this sector.
Lucila Siquier, Director of Communications at Cap Vermell Group, stressed that “to work in the hotel industry you need to feel a passion for what you do” and maintained that your attitude is the most important aspect to ensure a successful career, “empathy, continuous training, organisation, excellent customer care and offering the best services are critical to succeed in your projects. You also need to be clear that your hotel is unique and different from the rest, a concept that you have to transmit to your customers through your work”.
Meanwhile, representatives of Cap Vermell Group have presented the school with almost 150 disused tennis balls from Cap Vermell Country Club, a leading sports and leisure club in Canyamel. This donation, and others which will continue into the future, is connected to a recycling programme that the school is carrying out and that gives a second life to these objects in the classrooms themselves. Each one will be placed under the foot of a chair to silence it whenever it is moved.
Cap Vermell Group, as well as managing Cap Vermell Beach Hotel, a charming hotel at the foot of the beach in Canyamel, and the proprietor of another 5-star hotel, the Park Hyatt Mallorca, efficiently runs the Cap Vermell Country Club, a sports and social centre, and also promotes the sale and holiday rental of new luxury villas located in the Cap Vermell Estate residential complex.Mallorca
