Why a mountaineer?
Why has Vatel Switzerland chosen a mountaineer?
Vatel changed up its game by calling upon a non-hospitality figure. The school explores different ways that students can further create and develop their network through such a public figure. The school asked Jean Troillet to speak about his philosophy and career path in order to provide students a different scope of thinking.
It’s a great opportunity for students to meet someone with a different mindset and point of view on lifestyle and experiences.
Through his story telling, Mr. Troillet illustrated the link between management and organization through his K2 Himalaya expedition. He explained the interesting points and difficulties of managing a team of 4 people with completely different mindsets but who all had the same goal; climb and reach the summit.
Mr. Troillet explains, “It’s a mixture of actively listening to everyone and respecting all point of views; the key to management success. The most important part of the expedition is not just reaching the summit, but making it back safely with your team. It is important to follow your dreams and to never forget those who helped you along the way. ”
