    Our Executive Education programmes have helped customers from a range of sectors such as international hotel chains and independent hotels, luxury retailers, airlines, banks, insurance companies, FMCG retailers, high-end hospitals, manufacturing companies and hotel associations.

    Daniel Lyssy – Consultant at Swiss Opportunity Consulting, Switzerland
    “Already after the first day of instruction I could tell that people at LHC and EHL do not only teach hospitality, they first and foremost practice hospitality.” “What impressed me most in these modules were on one hand the highly professional module leaders, not only with their professional expertise but especially with their relevant industry experience and their passion to let everybody be part of that experience and knowledge. And on the other hand the small groups of highly interesting participants, part of them being very much involved directly in the hospitality industry and part of them industry outsiders with relevant interest in hospitality for different reasons.” “I can undoubtedly recommend the Executive Education Program of LHC to anyone interested in opening her/his mind and learning a lot from true hospitality professionals that are all part of the wonderful EHL culture.”

    Amr Lugman Alsunari – General Manager at Makarem Ajyad Makkah Hotel, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
    “Attending Executive Education at EHL gave me new ideas to develop and update myself to better respond the current needs of the hospitality industry. What I learnt at EHL was close to practical/professional life and applicable in this field”

    Cornelia Kausch – President at CK Hospitality Advisors, Germany
    “Exceptional Leaders are manufacturers of success. CMP provided me with the significant tools to enhance the above sentence. Taking the time as a leader to reflect on “Brand Me” and to include the Millennials into the programme was a special icing on the cake. Having the two Executives run the course added value. Tremendous authenticity, personal experience, drive, knowledge and professionalism made me grow as a leader applying what was taught. Thank you”

    Julieta Serafimova – General Manager at Grand Hotel Sofia, Bulgaria
    “Interacting with top professionals from different countries and cultures who share the same goal was a great experience for me. So many fresh ideas have been shared to help us do our jobs, insight into current trends and a lot of entertainment all contributed to our overall satisfaction. I appreciate very much the individual approach and focus on our personalities rather than mentioning just another common corporate strategy. Knowledgeable coaches, diverse case studies, excellent organisation, emotional fuel for months to come”

    Charles Wahinya – Regional Financial Controller, East & Southern Africa at Fairmont the Norfolk, Kenya
    “What I realized while at the course was that we sometimes take so many things for granted at work, particularly for us Executives that we come complacent. This course reignited the fire that I had in the years just after I was appointed to be an Executive. I have re-branded the brand “Charles Wahinya”. I know that I have been successful at this so far because during the short period of time between completing the course today I have seen the results at work”
