Detailed CV:

John has owned hotels most of his working life, ranging from small country pubs to large resort-style facilities with 40 motel units. At other times, he has run small businesses including a small manufacturing plant, sandwich bar, franchised home wares and a wine bar restaurant. John also opened a refurbished boutique hotel that had been closed for five years. He has always enjoyed being customer-orientated and loves planning events that bring more business to his operations.

John has always completed his own bookwork and has hopefully learnt to do this properly. One thing he has enjoyed is the advertising and planning for functions and events that bring more customers through the door.
