Relais & Chateaux, 1st guest of our Career Confidence

We had the honour to welcome in our beautiful school the visit of Anthony Torkington, General Manager of Relais & Chateaux, and Mallaury Vion, French Delegation Coordinator. They came to share with our students the values and the strategy of Relais & Chateaux, major player in the hospitality industry today in more than 60 countries. 

Career Confidence : AN privileged exchange creator of new opportunities for our students

After a conference to our students in Bachelor in International Hospitality Management and in Bachelor in International Food Service Management, in which Anthony Torkington talked about his career, the history and the future of the association Relais & Châteaux, 4 of our students had the chance to talk with him in our most private career event format : the Career Confidence. 

The Career Confidence is a career event that allows students of our bachelors to share a lunch with professionals and decision-makers of our industries and the Direction board of the school. A convivial lunch in which the discussion is flowing naturally with open-hearts on different themes. 

The Career Confidence is an innovative format that Solenn Bossard, Responsible for Corporate Relations,  wanted to settle to highlight the sense of sharing :

“The sharing is at the heart of our business we must appreciate these magical moments. These moments are an invitation for our students to reflect on our industry’s most emblematic figures.”

Students have been selected based on volunteering and their career objectives, a unique occasion for them to share a moment of passion with a leader in the industry in which they dream to have a great career. Inès Charavel, student in Bachelor in International Hospitality Management have share with us her experience after this lunch : 

« This lunch has a been a wonderful opportunity to share a privileged moment with a professional of the industry. The chats were of a great quality and very enriching for me and my classmates. This moment is unforgettable. »
