Amdi Brown, Hospitality Bar Supervisor
What does your role entail day to day?
As a Hospitality Bar Supervisor for Amadeus at the Genting Arena I look after the various hospitality areas, making sure the bars are always ready and stocked for our customers and that each and every person gets the very best service. At Amadeus, we are always looking at new ways of enhancing the experience for customers, and like to go the extra mile to make our events that extra bit special.
What is your proudest achievement while working for Amadeus?
I noticed there was a demand for a cocktail menu from our hospitality customers, so I’ve developed a range of beverages that offer a taste of my native Caribbean. Now available in the Lakeside Lounge at the Genting Arena, ‘The Little Book of Cocktails’ is a 10-piece menu that I have created. Taking inspiration from my home island of Anguilla, the cocktails offer a wide variety of Caribbean flavours including rum, gin and brandy infused with fruits and other liquors – the perfect way to set off a summer’s evening.
It’s a really creative company and they really like to nurture their staff to bring creative ideas to the table
Tell us more about the cocktails…
The ‘Smile’ – a real popular with customers – was inspired by Rainbow City, through to ‘Long Bay’, with colours representing the sea, sand and coconut trees on the beaches. My favourite is ‘Sunset’, a refreshing blend that symbolises the best time of day on the Caribbean islands.
What do you like about working for Amadeus?
It’s a really creative company and they really like to nurture their staff to bring creative ideas to the table – as demonstrated in ‘The Little Book of Cocktails’ that I designed and launched to customers.
