Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,
It is a great honor and privilege for me to represent you as President of UICH - Les Clefs d'Or.
Guided by the most noble principals and values such as Friendship, Solidarity and Good Will, my fellow members of the executive committee and myself will try to go forward and give to our association a different perspective, externalizing our goals and needs, in the various continents, imbue and enrich our significant and exceptional role to the hospitality industry.
The presence of the executive members to national events, educational seminars where are needed, our official Website, the International Revue and the Les Clefs d’Or Blog, will be the spearhead during our mandate.
Over the last years we have achieved to be a social and professional partner in a national and international level in the tourism field. We will continue to be present where is needed, conveying the spirit of Les Clefs d'Or. We will continue to be present at the Tourism schools around the world, educating and motivating the new generation for the amazing world of the Concierge.
But more, we will be present for you, supporters of your efforts, always with solidarity and friendship to work, no matter of time and effort, for our wonderful, powerful and exceptional Les Clefs d'Or association.
I would like to thank Virginia Casale, Colin Toomey, Simon Thomas, Roderick Levejac, Jean- Roland Boutille, Michael Romei, and Dominique Guidetti for their support.
To congratulate Jeannie Mills (Americas), Edwin Saldanha (Asia), Tamas Ungar (Central Europe), Simon Delcominette (Western Europe), Federico Barbarossa (Mediterranean), Franz Staufer (Oceania), Anders Ruggiero (Scandinavia) for their commitment as zone directors.
Robert Watson as our new Sages member and Aldo Giacomello as our Goodwill Ambassador.
To recognize your outstanding, excellent, kind, hospitable, discret and enthusiastic service, that every one of you provides to your hotel guests and like
Homer in Odyssey says: “For as long as he lives, every guest remembers the hospitable man who also shows kindness”
Vive Les Clefs d’Or!
