RM Academy wants to launch 30 training actions in 2018
The first academy in Portugal exclusively aimed at training hotel managers specializing in Revenue Management, the RM Academy, created in January, has ambitious objectives for this year.
With a team of experienced professionals, a portfolio of 16 specific training courses in the area of Revenue Management (RM) and already under management of some hotel units, RM Academy wants to “revolutionize the panorama of specialized training for hotels in Portugal “and states that all its actions are certified by DGERT.
For this year, the aim of the company, which wants to occupy “a space to explore”, is ambitious and goes through to launch about 30 training and acquire management of the Revenue, Sales and Marketing departments of 10 national hotel units.
The project managers are Rudi Azevedo and Elga Costa, who have a great professional experience and have developed activities in training and teaching in Higher Education.
Rudi Azevedo has already served in groups such as AC Hotels by Marriott, Sol Melia, Relais Chateaux, InterContinental Hotels Group and Leading Hotels of the World in positions of Revenue Management, Sales and Marketing. Elga Costa has more than 20 years of experience in teaching and business communication. Since 2001, he has been teaching at the Higher School of Hospitality and Tourism of the Polytechnic of Oporto and Coordination of Extension Units, as was the example of the Porto School Hotel.
“The Revenue Management Academy (RMA) arises after we have detected this gap in the training market, but also because of the sudden increase in hotel units that lack more technical knowledge in the areas in which we intervene. That’s why we also have an area of Consulting and Outsourcing”, say the founders.
The company’s training portfolio covers Revenue Management, E-Commerce and Digital Marketing. In the Consultation area, the commitment is to provide assistance to hotels and other accommodation units, with the guarantee of increasing all KPIs.
