1. Please can you tell us about the event you are holding here today?
Today we are holding a sports day event for staff from eight Marriott’s from around the Southern area, it is a day for us all to get together and hold a fantastic sporting event.
2. Who is involved in the event?
There are actually eight teams today all from within the Marriott group. This includes the three Courtyards from Phuket (Patong, Surin and Kamala), Renaissance & JW Marriott Phuket, a Renaissance from Koh Samui, a Ritz Carlton from Krabi and a JW Marriott from Koh Lak. Originally we hold the sports day event for the whole of the Marriott group throughout Thailand. However, there are so many in the chain now it is not easy to organise so we just hold our event for the South of Thailand.
3. How often do you hold events like todays?
We really like to hold an annual event, we had tried previously to do a couple of smaller events but they were not so easy to organize. So we have just decided to hold the one annual event.
4. What do you hope to achieve by holding today’s event?
I like to see all the associates from our group get together and get to know each other better. This enables us to work better together and see how we al operate. Also as we are all part of the same group, there are always opportunities to transfer within the group.
5. What are you looking forward to most about today?
I’m just really looking forward to seeing all of these people getting together and having a fun day. Even though we are all in our own teams, come the end of the day we know that we are really one big team together.
