Financial Management for Hotels

The aim of this development seminar is to extend participants understanding of key tactical and strategic financial approaches applicable to managing hotels at the property level; by understanding the hotel business financial dimension. The focus will be on engaging marginal accounting techniques in a complex hotel environment (through “The Profit Planning Framework: Dropping a Stone into Water”) and recent research into determining hotel customer portfolio profiles (in the form of “Customer Profitability Analysis).

The content will comprise concise explanations and illustrations in the context of live business situations, using industry-specific examples. This includes understanding the concept of hotel orientation in terms of decision-making and the importance of developing "profitable revenue". Throughout the seminar there will be minimum use of theory and technical jargon and emphasis on financial terms in a hotel context.
