Yesterday, I was an invited speaker at Boston University’s School of Hospitality. It was inspirational!
I had the honor to speak with almost 100 students and then enjoy a roundtable discussion with 20 seniors. I was inspired by their excitement, interest, understanding and passion for business. My topic was “The Spa Industry, a Historical Perspective”. In addition to providing them insight into the spa industry I was able to discuss many aspects of an entrepreneurial career.
I was also very impressed with the new Hospitality School building with state of the art facilities. If you know of someone considering a career in hospitality they certainly should spend some time looking at Boston University.
I have to admit that each time I speak at one of our country’s universities I long to go back to school and/or be a university professor. Well that’s not happening anytime soon…I have my oldest Alex in college and his younger brother, Zach entering his freshman year next fall. I guess I’ll have to wait a few years for my turn.
