Last week, 300 students from 7 colleges in the UK have been running 9 of our hotels. But what did it look like?
The students in our 9 hotels, UK wide, have been running over 2000 conference delegates, 7000 Breakfast covers and 4500 evening meals! A range of events took place throughout the week, including a Gala Balls at Holiday Inn Milton Keynes East, Holiday Inn Norwich North and Holiday Inn Warrington, and private banquets at Holiday Inn Manchester City Centre for 150 guests.
The Gala Ball, hosted at Holiday Inn Milton Keynes East, raised over £1,400 for a joint charity pot, supporting both the college’s nominated charity and our charity partner, Greenfingers:
Over the week these students have been not only running the hotels’ functions, but also their ongoing initiatives and projects. Here are Holiday Inn Birmingham Bromsgrove’s student General Manager and student Operations Manager preparing for Easter and discussing our focus – ‘Guest love’:
It is so amazing to be able to look back over a week that, once again, truly transformed not only these student’s opinions of hospitality as a career choice, but potentially their paths and futures.
