Institute of Hospitality engages with students at the start of their careers

Students let their individuality shine at the Institute of Hospitality Learning & Development Forum

LinkedIn, the gig economy, the boutique sector, Brexit and the National Living Wage were on the agenda at the Institute of Hospitality Learning & Development Forum on 21 November.

The one-day networking conference provided 180 hospitality management students from across the UK with a wealth of advice and contacts to help them make the best start in their chosen careers.

The event, now in its 11th year, was organised and hosted by the Institute of Hospitality London Branch. It took place at Firmdale’s Ham Yard Hotel, the stunning Soho boutique property that features its own cinema and 1950s-style bowling alley.

The event provided tips on job-seeking and how graduates can find the best cultural fit for themselves in today’s vibrant hospitality sector.

This year’s event was chaired by Michael Voigt FIH, opening general manager, L’Oscar, and facilitated by Peter Ducker FIH, chief executive, Institute of Hospitality .
