: De­scribe your typ­i­cal day in a sen­tence.

Agung: I start with a pos­i­tive spirit in the morn­ing, and con­tinue with plan­ning, or­gan­is­ing and ex­e­cut­ing through­out the day. In be­tween my busy sched­ule, I take a break to en­joy sim­ple plea­sures.

: So how did you come to be the Direc­tor of Food &Bev­er­age for Inaya Putri Bali?

A: I was in the pre-open­ing team of Inaya Putri Bali back in 2014 and got my start as the as­sis­tant direc­tor of F&B to de­velop the SOPs, con­cepts of F&B out­lets and MICE con­cepts, re­cruit the F&B staff and man­age pro­cure­ment of the op­er­at­ing equip­ment un­til all the out­lets were opened. Af­ter a year I was pro­moted to be the direc­tor of food and bev­er­age.

: What’s the tough­est part of your job?

A: Do­ing the same tasks on a daily ba­sis and not learn­ing new things. I pre­fer to do a job that de­mands more from me. It keeps me mo­ti­vated and keeps me go­ing.

: And what makes you smile at work?

A: When I get to meet clients and cus­tomers, and hear their good words.

: What mo­ti­vates you? A: My fam­ily.

: Would things fall apart if you weren’t around?

A: I have a very strong team in ev­ery sec­tion so I am very con­fi­dent that all the jobs in the di­vi­sion would be well han­dled.

: Who, in your team, de­serves more recog­ni­tion and why? A: Ev­ery­one who has worked well and pro­duced the best re­sults.

: Why should peo­ple visit Inaya Putri Bali to dine/stay? A: Inaya Putri Bali of­fers good prod­ucts at af­ford­able prices and value for money, as well as the gen­uine ser­vice de­liv­ered to ev­ery cus­tomer. Au­then­tic In­done­sian Food at Ho­maya is the most rec­om­mend­able.

: Away from work, what’s your favourite place to eat?

A: I love the lo­cal food and I al­ways look for any well-known lo­cal restau­rants in town.

: How do you un­wind?

A: I love na­ture and spend time re­lax­ing in places with green­ery or in the moun­tains. Dur­ing a week­end get­away with my lit­tle fam­ily is when I'm hap­pi­est.

: Fi­nally, any ad­vice for those look­ing to break into the in­dus­try? A: Work with pas­sion, never give up and al­ways try to do your best to be­come a role model.
