Where are they now? 2013

14 February 2014

“I am an Analyst for Eden McCallum in Amsterdam. I work together with McKinsey & Co -trained independent consultants - on strategy projects for a variety of international clients, (so far) reaching from private equity funds to medical device manufacturers and radiator producers. The project work often feels similar to that of HTH courses, and I am able to apply virtually all the skills I learnt in Phase 2 and 3, taking it all several steps further now. My next project might be London-based for a hospitality client, looking forward to that!

"Currently I work at the Regional Sales Office of Design Hotels in London as a Sales Executive. My role is to represent the brand in our regions, build strong relations with strategic partners, effectively execute sales activities and explore new business opportunities. Design Hotels represents and markets a curated selection of 260 independent hotels in over 43 countries across the globe."

“Based in beautiful Amsterdam, I have started my own company called Oaky. Focused on creating a win-win situation where guests are motivated to engage with the hotel pre-arrival and in-property, Oaky portrays a better understanding of what the guest wants – which means the hotel can offer exactly that to the guest. With pilots coming up in Benelux and Scandinavia I look forward to a truly exciting period ahead. Leading up to the launch in March-April we have also been invited as guest lecturers at Hotelschool The Hague and Glion in Switzerland late February.”

“I am a project manager at Roozen van Hoppe, a developer in the Tilburg area. We will start building a complex called the Leyhoeve in the first half of 2014. The Leyhoeve will contain 199 apartments for the 50+ market and 85 fully equiped health-suites. At this moment I am responsible for the letting of the apartments and in the past 6 months we have already let over 90% of our apartments. When opened, the complex will contain over 1500 square meters of hospitality outlets, a swimming pool, and a completely concealed healthcare infrastructure in every apartment. This to ensure our tenants that we can adapt the apartments to every possible need which might develop in the future. This project will hopefully be finished before the end of 2015 and we (obviously) aim to build more "Leyhoeves" in the future.”
