Once a year at least, the sales team gather to talk about what we hope to achieve next year and how we plan to get there. It is always a great day, with a ton on ideas put on the table and tons of optimism and hope.

I have a super team…no kidding!! They are pro’s – they work hard, they support and recognize each other’s wins and feel for their losses and they keep an open mind – always ready to learn and try new things.

So we talked alot about who the Lord Elgin Hotel is…what we stand for – how we differentiate ourselves. I talked about our history, as I have been around the hotel (there, away and always back again) for over 30 years. There are some fabulous stories!! It is a feeling…like it’s home. Hard to put into words…but we all feel it.

So as an Ottawa landmark that many of your are familiar with… I invite you to share with me what you think of when you think of the Lord Elgin Hotel? What would be your slogan??

I am having so much fun with my Cooperative Education placement at The Lord Elgin Hotel. Each day is completely different. Not only have I been assisting the Sales Team, but I also have been working with housekeeping, setting up events and working on the hotel’s social media sites. I never want this experience to end.

This week my teacher came to visit me at the hotel. She was amazed by The Lord Elgin Hotel’s beauty when she first walked into the lobby. I gave her a tour around the wonderful building and I showed her the variety of responsibilities that I have to do each day. After we talked with my supervisor at the hotel, she was on her way. She was so happy throughout the whole time she was here and I was so pleased. I would like to thank her for helping me achieve this wonderful placement and for being so supportive.
