Meet Maria Miguel, Founder & CEO at cultour-incoming GmbH & Co. KG and chapter leader for RaizUp Berlin.
What are your superpowers?
I consider myself a person with a lot of energy, very feisty and with a lot of temperament, like a good Spaniard. None of these adjectives make me superpowerful, but I do think they are very positive aspects and make me a bit special.
How do your strengths play into the work you do?
I have been living in Berlin for more than 15 years. I have learned many things here, among them that if you ask questions, you often get a no or a but. My fighting stance makes it possible for me to reach my goals or at least to reach a good agreement.
Imagine your best hotel experience – what does it look like?
Excellent service and zero waiting time.
What brings you the greatest joy at work?
Successfully solve problems in a very short term. Regularly achieving medium-term goals. And knowing that I have a team by my side in the long term.
Your advice for women in hospitality and travel-tech?
More than my advice, these are my slogans: “Do what you love”, “Don’t get tired of learning” and (of course) “No risk, no fun”.
