"The number one reason why I love teaching here is the the fact that I'm teaching students from all around the world with very different backgrounds, different perspectives, different cultures. This is my way of being an activist in the world today.
What we brought to London was over 50 years of heritage and academic programs from our campus in Switzerland. Our learning happens all the way through the city. It happens anywhere where hospitality is.
We are delighted to have the students from Glion because we find them fully engaged in the industry.
What I like about the teachers here, they make it look like it's easier, you want to do it gladly.
It's incredible how they teach you how to get ready for interviews, how to come across, how to speak in public, all this kind of soft skills.
Cleaning forks will take you to the top. And they are faster later in terms of getting promotions, moving to more maybe interesting positions where there's no more polishing of forks.
You don't learn only about events or hospitality, you learn about a way of leaving.
Many of the students here they find that a lot of their creative side is able to come out.
The students from different regions in the world, different cultures, they teach each other the particularities of their own country.
When you are surrounded by different cultures, it not only builds your character but it it extends on the type of person that you can become.
No, no typical student here!
The students from Glion are amazing.
When they arrive, they look like old teenagers or very young adults, and when they leave, they look like true professionals.
Being a professional is a lot of things, I'm still quite young but I've had a lot of experience for somebody my age.
I was shy in Mexico, here I was able to be the girl I wanted to be.
A lot of things has changed in my life which I'm proud of and part of the metamorphosis was coming here to Glion.
If we can light that spark, by the time they leave us, they are on the next run of their career ladder.
So they not only have employment, but they have choice of of employment.
You can have fun, and you can lear. Who said that knowledge should be boring."
