It has been our great pleasure to organize “HOW CAN 18-MONTH STUDY CHANGE YOUR CAREER AND YOUR FURTURE?”, the very first workshop which invited all the experts from every section of hotel industry as guest speakers to exclusively explain about their roles and share their work experience withThai students who are planning to further their education or to change their career to hotel management area before encouraging them to complete the project “Starting up a Boutique Hotel Business in Bangkok” together.


More than 30 participants attended the workshop. Some have hospitality background while some are from totally different field which made us very excited to see them all brainstorm and work as a team for the project later on.
