Meet Erika Bucsi, Enterprise Director of Sales, EMEA & APAC at Knowland and chapter leader for WHTT UK and Ireland.
What are your superpowers?
Determination is my super power, as a professional athlete during my childhood shaped my personality. I always find a way and never give up on my ideas or dreams, no matter how impossible the situation may seem.
How do your strengths play into the work you do?
My people skills and empathy help me build trust and rapport with my teams, colleagues and customers for long lasting relationships, even beyond a company.
Imagine your best hospitality experience – what does it look like?
My best hospitality experience is friendly and effortless. Thoughtfulness and caring goes a long way no matter the brand, the location and the physical aspect of a property.
What brings you the greatest joy at work?
Seeing my team members developing their skills, enjoying their role and progress with their career.
My advice for women in hospitality and travel-tech:
If you want something, ask for it. Do not assume your manager will build your career, be proactive and shine your profile internally. Just remember to stay humble and respectful.
