“We consider it a phenomenal opportunity for him to see first-hand the commitment to service, dedication to high standards and strong camaraderie among our colleagues here at The Fairmont Southampton. 

“Colleagues who were able to interact with the Minster were pleased to work alongside him, ask him questions and share their experiences.”

Mr Furbert’s day began with an introduction to the team at the bell and front desks where he received a crash course in how to check-in an arriving guest. 

He then went to the Fairmont Gold on the 6th Floor, where he was introduced to the staff, toured the Gold Lounge and interacted with guests. 

He followed that by touring the kitchen and the Willow Stream Spa.
