26 Jun Exclusive interview with Ciaran Fahy, CEO The Ritz, London
I had the great pleasure of interviewing Ciaran Fahy, CEO of The Ritz, London.
We focused on the perception of the hospitality industry, and how even the big names such as The Ritz see the struggles with recruitment. Much of the solution lies in the hospitality industry joining forces, speaking to the people that matter and making hospitality a viable recruitment opportunity from as early as school level.
Recently, Ciaran visited the school that his daughter attends to talk about the career opportunities in the industry to her classmates. This was prompted by a letter sent home from the school asking for professionals to give career talks. Even though plenty of other business types were listed, hospitality wasn’t one of them.
It is a need within the industry to change this perception, and together with some of the leading players it is my mission to help create a wave of change.
Watch the video and let me know what you think.
