Focus: Ms. Kylie Thuyen Guest Speaker for Global Student Forum 2021 22nd April

“Career Opportunities and Growth in Hospitality”

HTMi Switzerland is pleased to announce that Ms. Kylie Thuyen, Human Resources Manager, The Grace Hotel, Sydney, Australia will be one of its guest speakers at our Global Student Forum taking place on 21st and 22nd April 2021. Ms. Thuyen will be talking about “Career Opportunities and Growth in Hospitality”.

Kylie is a proud and enthusiastic hospitality professional and has been in the industry since she graduated from HTMi Switzerland in 2008 with a first-class BSc (Hons.) Degree from Ulster University. Kylie was also the recipient of the Excellent Student Award. Her passion and love for the industry is growing bigger by day. Kylie says that thanks to the many career fairs organised by HTMi every semester, she was thrilled to secure the Front Office Management Trainee opportunity with the Rotana Hotels & Resorts group in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates before her graduation. The experiences she gained in her four and a half years in Dubai and Abu Dhabi across the Rotana, Jumeirah and the Shangri-La groups were priceless. It is such a wonderful industry that could open up endless travel opportunities and help to shape and build you with all these valuable soft skills for life.

In 2013, she took the chance to apply for the transfer from Shangri La Dubai to Shangri La Sydney and truly fell in love with Sydney and has called this beautiful city home since.

During her 13 years’ experiences in hospitality, she has held various managerial positions in Front Office and Human Resources departments and feels so blessed to be able to do what she loves within the industry she is so connected to all these years. It is 13 years and counting. Kylie is married and has a two-year-old son.

Focus : Mr. Fabrice Tessier Guest Speaker for Global Student Forum 2021 21st April

“Accor’s Vision for the Hospitality Industry in a post-Covid19 World”.

HTMi Switzerland is pleased to announce that Mr. Fabrice Tessier, VP School Relations and Partnerships Talent & Culture, Accor, Paris, France will be one of its guest speakers at our Global Student Forum taking place on 21st and 22nd April 2021. Mr. Tessier will be talking about “Accor’s Vision for the Hospitality Industry in a post-Covid19 World”.

Fabrice has been a member of the Accor family since the beginning of his career, having worked in three operational as well as two regional and four corporate offices. His achievements have been rewarded with a recognition Award from Ecpat NGO in2004, a nomination for Innovation by The Hospitality Awards in 2010 as well as Company with best recognized relations with schools in 2018 and 2019.

Fabrice Tessier started his career as restaurant manager in Paris after his bachelor’s in hospitality management from Ecole Hôtelière de Paris. Loving the industry, he decided to pursue a career in hotel management and has worked in close areas of hotel operations, holding different positions including Trainer, and F&B Manager opening a Novotel in Comoros Islands. Fabrice’s passion has always been in developing talent within the organisation so the move into human resources was a natural progression.

One of Fabrice’s most notable experiences in 2000 when he was appointed Vice President Human Resources Accor in Asia based in Bangkok. 22,000 employees were working in the organization including 260 expatriates in 10 Asian countries. In the region, he oversaw the implementation of remuneration systems, boosted mobility both within and outside the region, developed national managers, and organized training programs for all employees. There, with the support of other hotels, he developed a partnership with Ecpat to promote actions protecting children from sexual exploitation in the tourism industry. This led to an agreement by many hotels to sign a Code of Conduct between Ecpat with WTO and UNICEF, now expanded within Accor. From there he moved to different positions in HR within Accor as VP HR, and Project Director.

Since 2010 he holds the position of VP School Relations and Partnerships for Accor Group. His role is aligned with the future needs of recruitment for Accor, namely, to identify and develop partnerships with the best Hospitality Schools, Universities and Business Schools. The goal is to see an increasing number of graduates taking management positions within Accor for the benefit of our industry development. Based in Paris, his department is part of the Hotel Services department in Corporate Talent & Culture. Fabrice gives lectures about HR-related issues in a few Universities and represents Accor in several School and Institution boards.
