Kate brings a huge amount of hotel experience to the team, having worked in many departments including reservations, groups, and conference and events. However, revenue management is where her heart is. She excels in designing strategies based on detailed scientific trend and market analysis and is adept at managing these to navigate the often unpredictable nature of the travel industry. This is what she loves. Combining the blend of scientific analysis, with the unexpected.
She loves yoga, all types of dancing, team sports and indulges in a bit of escapism by catching up on the latest fantasy page turner. She also admits to being a bit of a ‘geeky sci-fi fan’ and can be found spending her Sundays watching the latest series of ‘Game of Thrones’.
As the only member of the team without a revenue management background, Michelle likes to think of herself as the 'Special One'. She has spent most of the last 20 years working with hotels in various ecommerce, and sales and marketing roles - for British Airways, lastminute.com and Easyjet, among others. She loves, and is fascinated by, all things hotel related and is excited by the prospect that we are about to embark on one of the most dynamic periods in the industry.
She's a bit of a music fan, and makes efforts to go to see music live when she can – unfortunately her music tastes have not evolved since her university days. A keen traveller, Michelle has a special love for Africa. More usually though, she can be found drinking copious amounts of coffee while listening to Radio 6. She is also a qualified coach.
With a background in Marketing and International Finance, Bharati made the leap to the wonderful world of hospitality in 2002. Since then, she has worked in various reservations and revenue management roles for hotels including The Lowndes (where she was awarded 'Employee of the Year'), The Arch, and The Ampersand. She joined the Revenue by Design team in 2018.
When not analysing TRevPAR, Bharati likes to turn her hand to more creative pursuits. Handicrafts, gardening, dancing, and recycling projects - she is currently working on building a garden bench using recycled pallets. Her ideal evening would involve losing herself in one of the Harry Potter films, with a large glass of red, and a big bowl of popcorn!
