Yulia Kudryavtseva, Senior Portfolio Revenue Manager–IHG Revenue

With technologies that are available now in many cases, it’s possible to do Revenue Management remotely. I’m supporting hotels in very different locations and even countries, speaking different languages – in Moscow, Istanbul, Krakow, Baku, Tbilisi, Yerevan, etc. Every day I have 2-4 calls scheduled with hotels. I also spend about 1-2 hours for a call preparation and about an hour to create call notes with a summary of actions discussed.  In our regional office, we have 2 more people besides me looking at the hotel’s revenue performance.

In the 2017 American University of Armenia Extension invited me to read a course about “Revenue Management”. At that time “Revenue Management” was just entering into the Yerevan hotel market and was a newly developing field. We announced a one-month course on this topic. This was my first-time experience as a lecturer. It passed quite successfully, created a lot of buzz around it and in 2018 together with AUA we did another hotel-related course “Hotel Operations”.
