A quote from one of my favorite writers, Saint-Exupéry: “If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea…”
Well… if you want to know how much influence you had on our students, it is quite simple, most of them came to Chicago wondering about the Hospitality and catering industry and when they left, the Class Leader, in her final speech, said that most of the students had developed a strong passion during their Chicago Tour, meeting great leaders such as yourself, who inspired them and now were sure they wanted to make a career in the industry.
Your story telling for which you are so amazingly gifted, the time you and Todd dedicated to the students and your own passion for your people and for the restaurants had a formidable impact on the MBA students of Les Roches. On behalf of the school I cannot thank you enough for being an important milestone in their personal development.
With many thanks and best regards
