Adelaide Alumni James Spinkston
Bachelor of Business (International Hotel Management)
James Spinkston, who graduated from Bachelor of Business (International Hotel Management), is Front Office Supervisor at the high-end Four Seasons ski resort in Whistler, Canada. He is exceptionally happy with his offshore move.
Adelaide born and educated, James Spinkston says he has been very fortunate in a number of areas.
Among them: travelling a lot when he was young, his scholarship to Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide (2012-15) and more recently his supervisory role at Four Seasons Resorts and Residences, Whistler.
For the past six months the 23 year old has been designated trainer for the Front Office team, which comprises staff from the Ukraine, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden and Australia.
He landed the job from his second industry placement while at Le Cordon Bleu, which was at the property. His first was at The Westin Melbourne.
‘Le Cordon Bleu opened the world to me and from my second placement I got an idea of where this could take me’, he says.
