Tarryn Burrows, the general manager of BON Hotel 64 on Gordon, chats to Clinton Moodley on her typical day and how she balances work with family life.
How does it feel being the GM of BON Hotel 64 on Gordon? I love it. We have such fun here. We get to meet new people from all over the world who have different backgrounds. Also, my team and I are like family to each other.
How did you enter this profession? I wanted to get into an industry where I am be interacting with people on a daily basis. So I started studying Hotel Management and did my practicals in various hotels/guest houses in Joburg. From there, I went to study business management and travel and tourism, did the odd waitressing jobs to end up in the UK. In the UK, I worked in the hotels before being back in sunny KwaZulu-Natal.
