Branch chairman Ben Singer MIH said: “The Institute of Hospitality is the Industry’s Professional Body as well as an Educational Charity. We support hospitality organisations and professionals throughout their careers, promoting CPD (continuous professional development) and rewarding hardworking talented individuals. One of the ways we do this is through our Aspiring Managers Awards programme. A Hospitality organisation can recognise and reward their talent through The Institute and their peers.”
