The Big Hospitality Conversation
Skills London, ExCel
Friday, 13th November
11.00 - 13.00
We know a good conversation can lead to great things, this is why we want you to join us for the Big Hospitality Conversation taking place on 13th November alongside Skills London at ExCeL London.
This event will showcase the vibrant Hospitality and Tourism industry of the UK, celebrate leading employers and inspire the next generation.
The Big Hospitality Conversation is the flagship campaign of our industry. It has a threefold mission to:
Promote Hospitality as a career of choice
Facilitate a meaningful dialogue between young jobseekers and employers
Demonstrate the power of the industry to create jobs, especially for young people
We are calling on hospitality businesses to pledge to create jobs, apprenticeships and work experience opportunities within our industry, inspire the next generation and change lives.
Our target is to create 60,000 hospitality career opportunities for 16 to 24 year olds by 2016.
To date over 2,700 Chief Executives and HR Directors have connected with young jobseekers across the UK to generate over 46,000 pledges.
This event is working in partnership with Skills London to host panel sessions and key note speeches exploring issues surrounding work experience, apprenticeships and youth employment. This will be followed by the Big Conversation, and your chance to discuss the issues with young jobseekers.
We look forward to welcoming you at Skills London for this exciting event, and encourage you to bring your HR Director along.
P.S. There is limited availability for this VIP event, places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis and will go quickly.
