My name is Laure, I am 22, I just completed my course last week. I decided to write a testimonial to ensure people who still have some doubts about investing money and time for this course that is WORTH IT ! I did found a job 3 DAYS after being graduated in one of the best establishment of London, I met my employer on my graduation day (organised by Reception Academy ) , I even received other calls from different hotels for interviews thanks to my online profile . If you don't think that this training could get you a job, trust me you are wrong ! Employers know about the Academy and recruit with them because they realised the training was very complete.
Everything is organised from the day you start for you to succeed .
During your training you see Technical (Opera practice) , Behavioural ( 5* Hotels standards) and Practical ( Real life situations) parts. But more importantly, your trainer will give you all the keys to success (complaint handling, interview preparation, forbidden words, body language attitude...... ).
Thanks to my amazing trainers ( Nathalie and Pierre ), I am starting a all new career and I feel super confident! I would recommend this course to everyone who wants to work in hotel industry.Written 29th Sep 2014

Hi everyone my name is Shadrack and I have taken the one month receptionist course. I started on the 30.06.2014 and graduated on the 25.07.2014. On the graduation day, I was impressed to see that so many Front of House Manager and Hotel Representative of well-known and reputed hotels such as Hilton, Club Med and Pullman were attending the ceremony. They were invited by the Academy in order for us to have the best chances of finding a job at some of the best hotels in London. (Yes of course they were looking for applicants )!! That one month course demanded a lot of hard work but I came out more than satisfied. Thanks to Pierre Runacher, our teacher and trainer during this course, who prepared us well and build our confidence. I would like to thanks also the Sales & Marketing team who invited some hotels representatives, because of their help and my training I’ve been able to find a receptionist job at Doubletree by Hilton within 2 interviews and just 3 days after the course.
Once again thanks to Reception Academy and Pierre Runacher who give us all the tools, training and support we needed in other to prepare us for our future work.Written 6th Aug 2014

First of all I am so sorry for getting back to you bit late. As you can understand it’s been very busy schedule due to interviews and my work commitments. This blessed course does worth not even every single penny but believe me it worth way more than that. I know you all want bright future why wouldn’t you be and obviously when a lot of expenses to pay. You must be thinking whether am I taking a right step to enroll for this Blessed course. Well, I can guarantee you one thing. If you have a real passion for hospitality and you are ready and eager to learn then THANK GOD THE ALMIGHTY you are in right place. Please close your eyes and book the course and then you will realize yes I am going into right direction and I am in safe hands as reception academy blessed with brilliant and such an amazing, superb trainers such as Mr Deena Pillay (Tricky D LOVE YOU MAN ALWAYS, BIG HUG) Pierre, Natalie and obviously very friendly and genuine administrations staff Ali, Jade , Daniel , and Mr Hartmann. They will take you to another amazing hospitality world and will teach you brilliantly so you can be a successful exceptional receptionist, supervisor, and manager of todays big brands and 4-5 properties. If you are thinking about booking this course then you are genuinely thinking about boosting your career and you are being very honest with yourself. ?. My story might be very similar to any one of you. Well I came to U.K back in 2008 to complete my B.A (Hons) Degree in International Hospitality Management. While I was studying I had a couple of part time Jobs and when I was in my final year I had a Job as a sales/support executive. Even though I was able to secure my job but I never stopped thinking of pursuing my career in hospitality. Then I come across reception academy and they were offering some front office courses. I always wanted to start my career in hospitality from the front office department like most of you all wanted to start your career in hospitality industry within this department.
“To accomplish big things… you must first dream big dreams” “Conrad Hilton”
Due to some personal reasons I was unable to enroll my course back in 2011. Then I got promoted as a Customer Support Manager within the same company. As mentioned above I never stop thinking of pursuing my career in hospitality. I knew reception academy long time ago then I took my own initiative and booked a course with them on the 28-04-2014. Which was one of my great, wise and right step As the course started my trainer was Mr Deena Pillay. He is a amazing talented friendly and exceptional mentor. Right from the day first we all fell in love with him. Reception academy has been blessed with trainer and person like Deena, which is so great. I have not only met with great trainer, but I have also met with really great people in my class and we all have really great friendship with each other. Reception academies also provide you a great theoretical and practical learning environment. You love every second of it. You start this course and to be very honest with you do not want to finish it . You wish to keep it going going and going. Learn learn and more learn. ;). It’s also down to yourself how keen you are to learn and not only just to learn also putting into practice. It’s all down to you as well even though trainer like Deena will teach you every single thing, as he is very focused and exceptional. He really works hard teaching us so in returns we all should follow him learn from him, as he deserve it. It’s all about us we are the future leader of hospitality industry and we are going to be a future exceptional receptionist, supervisor, manager and hotelier.
“Worrying has never solved anything yet. Prayer, thought, action – yes. Just worrying, no! “ “Conrad Hilton”
Now I guarantee you one thing. Some of you will get jobs in very nice 4-5 properties before finishing this course and some of you will get the job and interviews offer on graduation day which is again is the most exciting part of this course where you get to meet with amazing and potential employer. Less than one month you manage to secure your job in very nice 4-5 Hotels. I would also love to share the biggest achievements of my life. After finishing this course on the 23-05-2014 I started receiving interview calls from 4-5 properties. I had an amazing experience during my interviews and learnt a lot. I also had an amazing feedback from the employers. I am deeply delighted, honored and humbled to tell you all that I have been offered a Job from One and Only Hilton. Wooooooo Hooooo. I have not just secured my Job I also believe and sure I have secured my whole career.
“Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit. Success… seems to be connected with action. Successful men keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” “Conrad Hilton”
I have no hesitation at all to say that it’s all because of the reception academy has provided us with such a great platform and with blessed knowledgeable trainers and obviously their hard work determination, enthusiasm, leadership and team work paid off. I will also say that you cannot clap with one hand you need a second hand too to make it happen. It’s all about us students our hard work passion to learn and putting into practice will take us to another level.
“[On dreaming] Imaginative thinking backed by enthusiasm, vitality, expectation, to which all men may aspire. “ “Conrad Hilton”
So come on guys what are you waiting for pick up the phone or visit reception academy and book the course immediately. Please do not waste your time. Time won’t come back. As you know time is money and you do not want to lose it. May God The Almighty Showers His Kindest And Greatest Blessings Upon Reception Academy And Staff. May our reception academy keep flourishing. I miss you all. :( At the same time I am so honoured pleased to be a part of reception academy and Hilton.Written 24th Jun 2014

I have recently graduated Hotel Receptionist& Opera V5 Course in Reception Academy. I wanted to change my career and start to work in a hotel as a receptionist but I was not so sure if the Course is going to help me to find a job in hospitality. Now I just still can not believe how my life has been changed for the last few weeks. I have attended an Open Day for a job in Dorsett 4* Hotel in Shepherds Bush with my professional Reception Academy Cv and I have passed all interviews for a job as a receptionist. Few days later I received a phone call from the hotel with the job offer. And this happened before I even graduate from Reception Academy. The Dorsett Hotel is planning to open in June this year so I am very excited and can not wait to be part of it and use all my skills and knowledge from the course. I have learned so much how to be not only a receptionist but how to be an exceptional receptionist with knowledge of Opera. I think hotels love to hire Reception Academy students because they have already know so much and hotels they do not need to train them much. I would also like to specially thank to my teacher Deena Pillay who is incredible teacher, who has skills to pass the knowledge to other people in a easy way. When attending classes I was having so much fun and I could not wait to be there again. Deena- Thank you so much for teaching me and make me always so happy. Reception Academy- Thank you for changing my life! JoannaWritten 1st May 2014
This is a fantastic course! Deena, you are an excellent teacher! Thank you Reception Academy, I successfully finished my first training course in London, like you say ''knowledge is power, power lead to success''. Now I believe my dream job has become closer to me!Written 1st May 2014

I am originally from Brazil and have been living in the UK for 15 years. My background is Leisure and Tourism and I finished my degree at London Metropolitan University in 2007. Shortly after the end of my graduation I managed to find a job within my subject of study in a local authority in the South East of England. Everything was fine and I was very happy until 2012 when due to the government cuts, I was forced to reapply for my job with a completely different job description and I was no longer involved in Leisure and Tourism, instead I ended up dealing with taxation and all the bureaucracy typical of a public sector job. That was making me extremely unhappy as I realised I was in a dead end job and had to do something about it. Luckily, I found Reception Academy online and decided to enrol in a 4 week Receptionist & Opera course in order to increase my employment prospect in the hospitality industry. It was the best decision I have ever made and as a result of that, I was offered a full time position at Yotel in my second interview which I consider a very positive outcome. I do recommend Reception Academy especially if the intention is to learn practical skills that will lead to employment in a short period of time.
Thank you Reception Academy for those 4 weeks which were definitely vital to the change of my career path.Written 6th Apr 2014
I can honestly say that doing this course was the best investment of time and money I've ever made. I graduated last Friday and today I am one of the new receptionists at Hilton London Metropole !!

My personal version of L.E.A.R.N: L - "Listen to Deena and become a Receptionist". E - Empathise: "You can only imagine how was amazing this course". A - Ask question: "What are you waiting for to join the Academy"? R - Reach Solution: "They offer you 24 hour support because some of them "do not have a life". N - Next Opportunity: "Can't wait to come back and do the Supervisor Class". Well apart joke now...What can i say...It was simply amazing... I enjoyed every single moment of this intense month.

I would like to tell everybody how precious Reception Academy has been for me. In the last years I've always searched for somebody who could teach me how to be a receptionist to access to the great world of hospitality industry. I have relied on Reception Academy with all my hopes and my best intentions, and since the first day in class I told myself "Yes! This is exactly what I needed!". Reception Academy means knowledge, professionality, motivation, passion and determination for me. It's a springboard, and all those who have ambitions and look for a quality training to be receptionist should choose Reception Academy. My graduation was on the 28th of February 2014, it was great to celebrate our success at the end of the course, to keep in touch with so many hotels managers at the same time, and there I realized that I was about to live my dream.. Three days later I accepted my most desired job offer from Hilton, and after a month I'm still trying to realize that it's real, not just a dream. I owe a lot to Reception Academy, and I'm happy that it exists, there is much more behind the classes that students attend, there are lives, different stories, different backgrounds, one dream in common, and all the students' hopes concentrated in those classes. I'm living my dream, and I'll never forget how Reception Academy was fundamental to achieve it! I wish all the best to the future students and to all the trainers.
Special thanks to Nathalie and especially to Daniel.
With affection, "Debora" ;)
