3 PASSION FOR THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY  I have been always passionate for the hospitality industry because of its diversity, beauty, human touch and all sorts of excitement.  I’m particularly interested in hotel development and investment. Therefore I took relevant courses at school and completed different internships in various sectors of hospitality industry.  With the passion for the industry and Accor group, I officially joined the development department of Accor Asia Pacific in Singapore as Business Analyst in April 2011. This is exactly where I started my very first internship in 2008. After several years of continuous learning, I finally made my way back to Accor in 2011 with more knowledge, experiences and profound passion! 3

4 ENRICHING PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCES Internship in Sofitel Arc de Triomphe, France (2009) Internship in KPMG, France (2009) Internship in Accor Development, Singapore (2008) Internship in Ibis China, Shanghai (2010) - Country specific regulations and procedures - Knowledge of Due Diligence - Market research - Data analysis - Presentations - Understanding of “respect” and “Service” - Hotel operational skill - French language - Understanding of hotel groups from procedure design and financial statement perspectives 4

5 CAREER DEBUT  Since joining Accor in April 2011, I have been part of the most exciting projects and witnessed the fast growth of Accor hotel network in Asia Pacific.  My position is responsible for providing support in preparing 5 years development and business plans, managing current and new investment across Asia-Pacific and reviewing potential acquisition opportunities.  I also support Southeast Asia development team in preparing feasibility studies for new projects.  In my role, I manage to deliver work with accuracy & desired quality despite time constrains and to prioritize projects by balancing the importance and urgency. 5

6 CAREER DEBUT - Examples  Thanks to my financial skills, I improved Accor’s financial model for evaluating hotel development and/or investment opportunities so that the whole region can refer to this template when they need to consider investments.  In order to progress together with the market demand, I also helped design the feasibility analysis model for “combo ” hotel projects.  As cost overrun is a big issue in India, I set up a project cost tracking system together with finance and technical & construction team. It has greatly strengthened Accor’s ability to monitor and optimize its investments in India. 6

7 CAREER DEBUT - Examples  I participated in setting up the Joint Venture Barque Hotels Private Limited (“Barque”), which is now held 60% by SAMHI and 40% by Accor. In this deal, I mainly worked on the financial analysis & valuation, due diligence and documents drafting. Currently, Barque is developing a portfolio of 17 low-budget economy hotels (4 already operational) with planned room inventory of around 2000 across various cities in India operated by Accor under its global “Formule 1” brand.  By working on various projects, I developed analytical skills, fast-learning ability and time & stress management skills. Those skills and abilities allow me to work efficiently and effectively in various situations with multinational teams. 7

8 FUTURE OBJECTIVES  I’m working hard to become a good hotel developer and help grow Accor’s network across the Asia Pacific region.  In the future, I hope to be able to handle hotel investment and development projects independently.  I’m eager to continue being part of Accor’s success! 8
