The author of this famous hospitality-sector phrase, Mr. Horst H. Schulze, is not only an hotelier, but also co-founder of the Ritz-Carlton and founder of Capella Hotels & Resorts. On Friday October 11th, 2019, he spent an afternoon on the IUBH Bad Honnef Campus, where he spoke to the students about his passion for the hospitality industry and his uncompromising dedication to excellence.
What separates the top businesses and leaders from the rest of the pack?
During his presentation, Mr. Schulze shared fascinating stories from his professional life and his views on the ever-changing worlds of business in general and hospitality in particular. With over 1.4 billion international arrivals in 2018, and 6000 new hotels opening this year, hospitality represents a dynamic and competitive industry – and a subject ripe for a lively discussion. Mr. Cyrus Heydarian, General Manager of the Breidenbacher Hof (and Hotel Manager of the Year Germany 2015), joined the discussion too, providing the IUBH students with insightful advice for their future careers.
