Young Hotelier Summit in Switzerland Underway

Posted on Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

HTMers Dan Amzallag, Duncan Chiu, and Allison Clarke are currently in Switzerland representing the University of Guelph at Young Hotelier Summit, a prestigious competition that takes place annually. Each year YHS consists of three students from twenty-two different hospitality programs representing all continents. These sixty-six students are placed into six-man groups and asked to answer an industry question. Yesterday Starwood, this year's sponsor, created the groups and provided this year's project. The student groups have been asked to devise a human resource program that will be viewed as an "employer branding concept", specifically for new graduates from top Universities. Hopefully one of our students will be on a winning team this year! And for all those 3rd year students out there: YOU could be on an all-expense paid trip to Switzerland at this time next year, networking with CEOs and upper management from Starwood, Fairmont, Shangri-La, and many more!  Also, thank you to donors who support the Student Opportunities Trust, which provided partial funding for this trip.
