Young Hoteliers Summit 2014

Young Hoteliers Summit 2014
12 June 2014

In March, for the 5th consecutive year the prestigious Young Hoteliers Summit (YHS) took place at Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland. The esteemed event brings together students, lecturers and hospitality leaders, building bridges among these various stakeholders and contributing to the employment outlook in the industry.
 
For this year, 53 preselected delegates from 26 schools around the globe were invited to put effort and creativity together and solve a real-life problem of a company. The Hotelschool The Hague delegation consisted of students Afrodita Dobreva and Dennis Davidson, accompanied by Govert Boender as lecturer, who all did their best representing the school, and expanding its international network.
 
For the challenge itself, all delegates were divided in teams of 5-6 students and they had less than 24 hours to come up with an employee plan, which incorporates the newly established strategy and values of FRHI Hotels & Resorts. It is more than a pleasure to say that the team of Dennis Davidson was awarded the first place. Having a school representative in the winning team again, fulfilled the delegates with great pride.
