Distinguished Speaker Series: Nov 2, 2012
Speaker: Mr. Thomas Hoeborn, GM, Conrad Hong Kong

Having spent around 27 years with Hilton Worldwide in various positions such as Area Food & Beverage Director, Hotel Manager, General Manager, and Regional General Manager, Mr. Thomas Hoeborn is experienced in the hotelier industry.

Instead of "training", Mr. Heoborn emphasized that he'd rather call it "learning and development" when it comes to nurturing the next generation of leaders and his fellow team members. Conrad is creating an environment where team members could choose their own career path and pace. Every team member should be on-going and constantly learning at every position to explore their possibilities and further move in their right field to fully utilize their talents. Moreover, leaders and team members are partners during mentoring and leaders should help them to grow. Saying "the sky is your limit in your career with Hilton Worldwide" seems not exaggerating as members in Conrad are always growing.

Firstly, service provided are smart luxury. It emphasizes a personal touch in a stylish way which I believe is the key of keeping loyal customers. Secondly, service provided should be flawless. It focuses on customers, keeps an eye on consistency and keeps improving. Thirdly, service provided should be able to bring connections to customers. It creates an environment that the guests could enjoy and connect with whoever people or whatever...
