Outstanding Seychelles Tourism Academy Graduate Shaquille Denis Who Trained At Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa Is Awarded President’s Cup
July 01, 2015
SEYCHELLES - Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa would like to congratulate its team member of six months, Mr. Shaquille Denis, who has recently been awarded the prestigious President's Cup. It was awarded at his graduation ceremony at the Seychelles Tourism Academy on 1 June 2015.
Shaquille, 19 years old, gained experience in both the Activity Center and in the Front Office at Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa over the past six months as part of his study in Tourism and Tour Guiding at Seychelles Tourism Academy. Mr. Denis' focus and ambition, combined with his outgoing personality, made him a great asset to the team who described him as an exceptional student. The team is confident that he will excel in his chosen field after graduation.
The President's Cup is presented to the most outstanding graduate of 2015. It recognises Mr. Denis' passion for the tourism industry, natural ability and dedication. The accolade includes an overseas scholarship and a laptop among many other prizes.
Shaquille is very ambitious and is destined for greatness in the tourism field. To further progress in his career, he would like to continue working for Hilton Seychelles Hotels, due to the extensive opportunities that both the resort and Hilton Worldwide can offer.
"Providing opportunities to mentor local talent to become leaders of tomorrow's hospitality industry is a source of pride for us at Hilton Seychelles Hotels," said Claus Steiner, general manager, Hilton Seychelles Hotels. "Even more rewarding is to have students like Shaquille Denis, whose dedication and passion for the industry has manifested itself not only in his achievement as the most outstanding graduate in 2015, but also through his contribution during his internship at the Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort and Spa."
Hilton Seychelles Hotels' focus on training and development, as is seen throughout the Hilton Worldwide brand, lends itself to being an employer of choice in Seychelles, and internationally, with the rising stars of the hospitality industry.
