Arriving at Sansiri’s ultra-exclusive 98 Wireless condominium for a busy day of shooting, Fa Benedetti initially comes across as a bit reserved, although it doesn’t last long. Very quickly she is opening up and demonstrating her warmth and friendliness to the whole crew.

Hospitality's got a beautiful face.

Despite being highly successful, Italasia’s hospitality director, it seems, is not the hard-nosed and haughty sort of high-powered woman—far from it, she’s approachable and down-to-earth. This is evident throughout the day, but never more so than when she joins the team for a bite of lunch and some light-hearted conversation. By the end of the day, everyone is starting to flag a little, but Fa, who it turns out has a mild case of jetlag having just flown back from Argentina, never complains and finishes the shoot with grace and professionalism.
