>>Mentor Me: David Guile FIH & Gabrielle Le Roux AIH

The Institute’s unique mentoring scheme continues to solicit extremely positive feedback. Learn what David and Gabrielle have to say about the six-month programme. Mentor Me is now open to EMS students too, so please come forward and get involved.

Mentor Me is mentoring with a difference; it focuses on career growth and development for both experienced and new hospitality managers. Our student members and Associates (AIH) are matched with experienced Members (MIH) and Fellows (FIH) to undertake some guided learning on topical industry issues alongside monthly meetings.

If you can commit to a one-to-one meeting each month for a six month period and you are keen to undertake professional development as well as supporting a colleague then Mentor Me could be for you! Meetings do not always need to be in person, you can choose to meet via Skype, Face Time etc if more convenient

David Guile FIH is the former chief executive of Macdonald Hotels and Resorts and is now an executive leadership coach. He says: “I had the pleasure of mentoring Gabi Le Roux who is heading up the Service Academy for BaxterStorey. Together we worked through the various leadership and business themes that formed part of the structured programme. We also found time to discuss and explore the issues that were more pertinent to Gabi in terms of her own personal and professional goals which we agreed at the start of the programme.”

“The programme proved to be an ideal platform for me to share some of my experiences of the industry with Gabi and in turn provide some motivation, coaching and direction to support and enhance her personal development. We enjoyed positive and informative discussion on various leadership and business subjects and for me it was rewarding to be able to contribute to the development of an emerging leader within our industry.”
