Leadership knows no gender and each captain has a distinct style of steering a ship.
The first Marco Polo Hotel in the Philippines found its first lady General Manager in Dottie Wurgler-Cronin, a Cebuana with 15 years of hospitality experience. She worked her way up the corporate ladder from Food Beverage Manager to Director of Operations at Cebu City Marriott Hotel, to General Manager at Alegre Hotel in Cebu before accepting her next challenge to move to Davao and manage one of the premier hotels in the city.
She’s been “manning” the helm for more than two years now and by the looks of it, Marco Polo has never been busier, the coming holiday season most especially.

Halloween Experience with Malagos Garden Resort's MGA HANDURAW SA BAUL 2017

Braved the Halloween season this year with a chilling experience with friends from Davao Digital Influencers Inc. Thanks to Malagos Garden Resort  for organizing Mga Handuraw Sa Baul the second time around.  They brought the halloween season to a whole new level. I was not able to experience it last year but I'm more than lucky to be invited and see the event myself this year. Glad the event fell on a Saturday and a free transporation was provided for the DDI team. Though rainy all throughout the almost two hour travel, we arrived safely. Right in time for the scary booths, good food and music!

Mga Handuraw Sa Baul 2017 prepared a lot of activities for the whole day event not just for millennials or  group of  friends but for all ages as well.
