L&A have completed a 2nd successful Housekeeping Management workshop on 14th and 15th May at the Arch Hotel in London. 14 participants came from as far afield as Malta and Ireland to gain skills in project management and learn presentation skills. Having the Engineer from the Arch participate was a highlight as we all learnt a great deal from Robin on the Engineering perspective, an added plus.
The Professional Executive Housekeeper’s Network invites you to participate in our Annual Housekeeper’s Forum. This is an opportunity to address issues that arise in housekeeping and this year’s topics are about Finance (Budgets, Profit and Loss etc.) and Linen (understanding fabric and towel constructions, expected life of linen etc.)
As executive housekeepers come under increasingly large workloads and more stressful responsibilities, membership of, and participation in, appropriate industry bodies can prove very worthwhile for the individual’s wellbeing. That was a key message imparted by Professional Housekeepers Association of NSW Inc (PHAN) president Maureen Jolowicz at the Association’s 2013 annual general meeting.
Liz and Vicky Jakus, the Executive Housekeeper of the Blue Mountains Hotel School took a couple of hours for a site visit to the Fairmont Resort in Leura. The Resort has just spent Australian $10 million on a refurbishment programme so it was a good opportunity to see the results. Click Here To Read More
Liz continued with guest lecturing in March 2013, she was once again invited to present a 2 hour lecture to the Year 2 students at the Blue Mountains Hotel school Leura Campus. The session introduced the students to new rooms division products and technologies used in hotels and resorts globally.

Following Liz’ presentation to students at Enderun College Manila, the following paper was submitted by Edrenalyn V. Jarilla
The most interactive talk we’ve had for the whole semester is probably the one of Ms. Liz Lycette of Lycette and Associates, discussing and sharing with us the Housekeeping trends and innovations in the industry. Meeting her previously at 101 honestly got me hooked and excited to hear what she has to share in class on the 12th of March.
It was the first event for 2013 – and 22 members of the Professional Housekeepers Association of NSW accepted the invitation to inspect the facilities and surroundings enjoyed by students of the renowned Manly International College of Management.
Liz was invited to Enderun College whilst she was at the Peninsula Manila for a month. This gave her a great opportunity to address some of the hospitality students from the Advanced Hotel Operations Course. Her presentation was on Management skills training through Housekeeping with new trends and innovations and a group debate.
