GESTO is the Portuguese word for 'Gesture'. A gesture is usually defined as a physical movement or verbal expression to convey an idea, sentiment, attitude or courtesy. At GESTO, we are committed to translate this simple idea into a lifelong philosophy. As professionals in the hospitality industry, we are all well aware of the physical gestures which are often used to greet guests, communicate with colleagues and delegate tasks in the workplace, but here at GESTO, we take these gestures a step further. GESTO signifies not only physical actions but also the strength of character, the zest for life, respect for work and the personal satisfaction that comes from superb performance on the job as well as in the classroom. Our deep belief in this concept is reflected in the choice of our name!
GESTO, by understanding the industry needs and in turn the Skill Development needs, continues to evolve World Class Training Programs with the means of R&D, innovation, technology methods and creativity.
