Graduation Class of 2012

The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy honoured the graduating class of 2012 on Saturday, 15 March 2014.

Guest speaker Allan Clingham, General Manager of Crowne Plaza Hotel Rosebank, shared some information about how hotels have changed in the past 30 years.

How Hotels have changed
• 30 years ago, we did not have cellular phones: Witney Board for check in and telex machines as it was the only form of communication.
• 25 years ago, corporations had just started using the first computers.
• 20 years ago, people used to ask if breakfast was included in the rate-they would book straight away, as that was the attraction.
• 15 years ago, people would book a hotel room based on how comfortable the beds were.
• 10 years ago guests wanted to know if we had computers, printers and business centres available on site.
• 5 years ago guests wanted to know if there was Wi-Fi available.
• 2 years ago, guests want to know if the Wi-Fi is free.
• Now guests want to know how fast our Wi-Fi is and what our broadband width is.
All I can say is; WHAT NEXT, sit back and hold onto your seats because I can only imagine how wild the next 20 years are going to be.

Graduates are embarking on an exciting journey in the hospitality industry and we wish them a prosperous career.
