I’m Amanda Hall, Group L&D Manager for Splendid Hospitality Group. I’m originally from the UK, but was born in Gibraltar and spent most of my childhood living overseas (Spain, Belgium & Hong Kong). This is perhaps where my love of all things travel and hospitality started.
I have spent my entire career in hospitality (around 16 years now), mostly in Hotels and I have been fortunate enough to work in some of the UKs best hotels, as well as in Spain, Greece and more recently have spent 2 years in the UAE.
My time in hospitality has included roles in Front Office, F&B and HR before finally finding my passion for Learning & Development in 2008.
Outside of work, hospitality and travel is also my passion – I love nothing more than exploring new places, restaurants and hotels with my friends. To date I have visited 38 countries! When I’m travelling I love to try new foods (some certainly weird & wonderful!) and you’ll often find me SCUBA Diving.
I joined the Splendid Family in April 2017, after hearing about a role that had been created to lead the L&D Team. Having worked in some larger corporate businesses, I was keen to try something new and was looking for a fresh challenge. Once I researched the company further, I got a real sense of the company culture and was intrigued to understand more about the Splendid Family and the Purpose & Way which is at the heart of everything we do.
Progressive, Fun, Family
Probably unsurprisingly I would love to be able to fly, so I could jet off anywhere I want, whenever I want!!
