Tourguiding students meet with Stamford Plaza staff

Tour guiding students met with Stamford Plaza staff last week to discuss the practicalities of dealing with incoming and outgoing groups.  Michael, the Head Concierge, was a wealth of information sharing his practical tips in relation to dealing with groups of various backgrounds when arriving or leaving the hotel. Thanks Michael! A great informative session.
