Virgin Limited Edition: International Women's Day

Today (Tuesday 8th March 2016) is International Women's Day. So we asked some of our leading ladies at each Virgin Limited Edition property to tell us a little about themselves, and about their career paths so far...


Lyn Weimer, HR Director for the Virgin Limited Edition group, trained in hotel management before specialising in HR Management. She has worked for the Virgin Group in various HR roles since 1995.

Who is your female role model?
I love the writing of Maya Angelou she was quietly strong but with warm spirituality. Really couldn't pick just one, I have been inspired by many women I have met and worked with both older and younger than me. We can learn so much from each other

What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
Think outcomes once you know what you want to achieve then how you should go about achieving it becomes clearer.

What advice would you give to young woman in the hospitality industry today?
Don't be afraid to be yourself, be genuine in your dealings with others and show respect for everyone. Also it's a very hands-on industry so don't be afraid to 'have a go' and get involved in all aspects of the business.
