 - Chief Operating Officer Hospitality, The Americas

Michael Flaxman - Member, Executive Committee Accor SA

When I was younger people tried to dissuade me coming in to the hotel industry.  They suggested I get a proper job.  My parents wanted me to be a Barrister, my careers advisor insisted I went in to one of the professions and I wanted to be a Hotelier.  Fortunately I got my own way.  Having studied law and history at university I came down to London to work in a restaurant.
Great hotels provide unforgettable experiences. If you come and work in our industry you will have the opportunity to create other peoples unforgettable memories.

David Morgan-Hewitt - Managing Director - The Goring

Never despair if you are working for a manager who seems rubbish: take what you can and learn, learn, learn. Then move on and become the supervisor you would have liked to have worked for.

Liz McGivern - Director of Human Resources and Training - Red Carnation Hotels
