Spa Management Students at the Global Spa Summit – Spa Intensive versus Spa 101
Of all the exciting things I get to work on in preparation for the Global Spa Summit (sometimes I refer to it as Spa Davos – à la World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland) one of my favorites is the plan for 10 lucky spa management students who will be joining us this year.
- Four students from Cornell University’s School of Hospitality Administration
- Four students from Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne
- Two from the UCIrvine’s Extention Spa and Hospitality Management Program
They will be “Scribes” for the Global Spa Summit sessions. That means they take notes which we later put into a White Paper Presentation. They will also get to meet and mingle with all of the 200 delegates from around the world. And since our industry has a labor shortage due to its rapid expansion, they will also, no doubt, receive a smattering of job offers.
It reminds me of the days I was a student….such an exciting time of promise, looking to the future, having the sense you will one day get a chance to change the world.
My sister, Katrine (she is in graduate school getting her Master’s in English Literature), often says…”in school you move ‘pretend molecules’ and once you are out, you get to move ‘real molecules’.” It is her way of comparing the difference between reading fiction and discussing case studies at school versus getting out into the world and creating your own stories.
I feel lucky to be moving some real molecules nowadays.
If you wish to be put on a list that automatically sends my blog posts to your email, just let firstname.lastname@example.org know and she will add you to that list. Thanks so much!
