For 2013, P4H has been extended from its origins as a student debating competition to showcase and celebrate the talent and career opportunities in the hospitality industry.
Designed to propel and equip the industry’s undergraduates to become the best they can be, the conference will include a careers forum, industry success stories, discussion panels, a keynote speech from an industry leader, and, of course, the P4H student debating competition.
P4H was launched in 2011 to bring students, academia and the industry together. Nearly 90 colleges and universities are signed up to the IoH’s Education Membership Scheme, which gives 40,000 hospitality students access to resources and career support.
IoH chief executive, Peter Ducker FIH said: “I am delighted to see that our P4H initiative is going from strength-to-strength. The ability to talk and persuade others in front of an audience is a valuable skill to nurture in any walk of life. Now with the addition of the student conference, we have created a truly unique event to meet the needs of students, educators and employers.”
