UKHospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls will grill education secretary Gavin Williamson on the future of hospitality careers in an interview as part of the Master Innholders' series of free online events.
The first of the Master Innholders' ‘Hoteliers – Battered But Not Beaten' events will take place on 18 March at 3pm, when guest host Nicholls will discuss with Williamson (pictured) how to encourage young people, parents and schools to think about hospitality as a viable career choice and how businesses can get involved with the new ‘flexi-job' apprenticeship programme.
David Morgan-Hewitt, chairman of the Master Innholders and managing director of the five-red-AA-star, 69-bedroom Goring hotel in London's Belgravia, said: "I am thrilled that the Hoteliers – Battered But Not Beaten programme is kicking off with a welcome from a very special guest and what is set to be a very insightful discussion with our secretary of state of education, Gavin Williamson.
"Throughout this programme we aim to highlight our incredible industry and how we can continue to rise to the challenges we are facing to come out even stronger and more resilient than before."
Open to all hotel professionals, the programme will see inspiring speakers and industry-leading specialists host free forward-thinking sessions and interviews discussing the future of hospitality and must-know topics.
