Fifteen hoteliers have just completed AccorHotels International Hospitality Management Program (IHMP) for Asia Pacific.

The program includes a 21-day classroom training session, 16 self-paced e-learning courses and several virtual classrooms as well as in-depth mentoring.

The final assessment saw participants presenting a major project to a panel of senior executive leaders from AccorHotels Asia Pacific.

Projects included such varied topics as customer-centric security, multi-skilling teams, strengthening the talent pipeline, digital marketing and improving the leisure ambience at resort hotels.

Some of our best General Managers today have come through the IHMP program over the years, said Christine Rumble, Vice President Learning & Development, Accor Asia Pacific. We have found that participants really value the opportunity to combine on-the-job experience with classroom learning and networking with international colleagues who are also undergoing the program. It is a great way for us to recognise and reward talent within the organisation and ensure the development of our talent pipeline for the future.

Ms Chidchanok Pasingpong, Director of F&B at Sofitel So Bangkok is one of those who has just completed the course and said it was a great learning experience, and one that has brought her closer to achieving her career dream of becoming a General Manager.

IHMP is a fantastic journey that has brought me to a group of equally ambitious individuals, she said. It is a journey that was enlightening, challenging and unforgettable.
