SPOTLIGHT on:    Natalie Ward  

How long have you worked at Hotelstaff?

2 months

What did you do before working at Hotelstaff?

Since leaving University I have been working in restaurants and hotels in both Melbourne and London. Working across all facets of the industry, from franchise to fine dining – I have been lucky enough to work with and for some amazing chefs, managers and in some picturesque venues. Working through the London  Olympics and Queen’s Jubilee, I had a front seat view to some of the events of recent history, delivering service to the stars and athletes

What is the most enjoyable part of your job?

The people and the feeling that you get when you succeed at the impossible!

Describe Melbourne in 3 words?

Food, wine, summer

Favourite thing to do in Melbourne? 

Walking through our amazing laneways and checking out all the new restaurants and bars Melbourne has to offer.

What does hospitality mean to you? 

Hospitality is everything! It is making everyone you come into contact with feel as though their day became special through just their interaction with you.

Your greatest new discovery? 

Sake Flinders Lane – those guys at Urban Purveyor, sure know how to put together a restaurant. Fresh design, with a great menu, offering outstanding food and drink. Can’t wait for Melbourne’s The Cut!

 How do you stand out from the crowd? 

Shoes! What women doesn’t love a great shoe collection. And being vertically challenged – this is an essential for me.
