About Me

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

 I am just an ordinary boy with extraordinary dreams, who fell in love in Revenue Management.

Or I might first fell in hotel industry.

Whatever was first, this webpage was created from passion and I feel like this is the first step in my  journey and the sky’s the limit.

 

My name is Mateusz Konopelski and welcome on my website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During my bachelor studies I gained knowledge in the field of statistics and econometrics. These studies also developed my critical thinking, analytical skills and the ability to draw conclusions. My Master Studies, on the other hand, taught me how to devise corporate and marketing strategies. During this program I spent time considering what kind of work would require use of my analytical and statistical skills together with marketing and strategic knowledge. Moreover, my dream is to join my work with my biggest passion – traveling. I realize that the hotel industry enables me to travel while working and in Revenue Management field I could use all I have learned during my studies. Therefore, in order to obtain specialized knowledge I have written my dissertation under the topic of “Combined vs. Individual forecasting methods. A critical comparison of forecasting methods in Revenue Management in the Hotel industry”. Moreover studying in different countries prepared me to work in international companies.

My private life is full of passions, however, the main affection is certainly traveling. I’ve already been to:Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Italy, Netherlands, Slovakia, Ukraine, United States; but my appetite is not satisfied at all. Besides traveling, I am trying to practice different sports and challenge myself on daily basis. Therefore I love going: skiing, snowboarding, surfing, windsurfing, rock climbing and anything else that will make me sweat. However, I do appreciate long evenings, with good book (as you probably noticed from literature section I am kinda book nerd), glass of red wine and non disturbing sound of my gramophone. When I am bored I am doing origami (that’s a probably relict from old high-school days).

    Hey man I love your website! I am currently finishing my Applied Math degree at the College of Charleston with a minor in Hospitality/ Tourism Mgmt and writing my final report on forecasting demand and pricing methods for revenue management in the hotel industry. I am focusing on overbooking right now and came across the following page:

    I just wanted to point out that I think you meant ‘g – average of unused guaranteed reservations’ to represent no-shows.

    “N – amount of non-guaranteed reservations at the specific time; n – average percentage of unused non-guaranteed reservations; G – amount of guaranteed reservations at the specific time; g – average percentage of unused non-guaranteed reservations”

    I also wanted to check your example of overbooking calculations but cannot click the link!

    Anyway, I just landed a job with IHG Global Revenue Management in Atlanta, Georgia. Not too stoked about the city life but, have also traveled to many places you listed. Would love to talk some more! Your website is really intriguing and has inspired my work.

    Best,

    Maggie

    Hi Mateusz,

    Awesome site you got here! :) It’s very informative and insightful. I just opened a hostel in the Philippines and I am amidst developing a revenue strategy for my property here.

    Do you have an excel templates available that I could use?

    Btw, if you come to the Philippines, particularly to Dumaguete, let me know. ;)

    Cheers!
    Hans
