Hotel Miramar General Manager Theo Iakimov was a guest lecturer at a recent Bournemouth University hospitality and tourism seminar discussing strategic management practices with tourism undergraduate and postgraduate students.
A number of speakers representing the local and regional industry covered a range of relevant and topical issues.
Theo said, “I feel passionately about promoting the sector and encouraging fresh new talent into the industry. For too long ours has been seen as an area that lacks career progression and I am keen to promote the hospitality industry to those who aspire to management level. We operate in a global market, and whether it is leisure, restaurants, bars or hotels there are great opportunities for those who are prepared to work for them.”
Dimitrios Buhalis from Bournemouth University said, “I’d like to thank Theo for the insightful and inspiring guest lecture.”
