Royal Palm Golf & Country Club Vice President Ahmad Iqbal Saeed visited COTHM to share the industrial insights with students.
Ahmad Saeed spoke to the students about the process a company takes to get success in the field of hospitality.
The students asked pointed questions about the impact of mentors, role of skills in education, and collaborations between the corporate and educational sectors. They also questioned about how to keep going after failure, and how to stay motivated every day.
Ahmad’s parting advice for the students was to work hard because the demand for hospitality jobs will always exceed the supply. He told the students to be persistent, take on internships whenever possible, and make sure they love whatever they end up doing because a passion for the work is critical for success in the industry.
