60 anniversary HMSM

Nissreen Idriss wins Global Mind Award sponsored by Hilton at 18th Global Mind Conference | 22 February 2018

All our interns blog about their intercultural experiences and trends on our platform Curious People during their international  internship. But there can only be one lucky winner of the Global Mind Award!

A special one this edition of the Global Mind Conference, sponsored by Hilton: an overnight stay at Hilton Schiphol Airport followed by a day-with-a-manager! The lucky girl is Nissreen Idriss who impressed peers and teachers with her beautiful blogs about (hotel) life in London. Nissreen blogged about her feelings about the homeless people she passed every day on her way to the hotel in Oxford Street, about the permanent reconstruction activities in the London Metropolis and the complaints by sleepless hotel guests, and made a funny trade-off of the pros and cons of the school uniforms she observed kids wearing from her window in the schoolyard next door.

The Global Mind Conference is organised every semester to commemorate the homecoming of the operational interns who spent 5 months in different corners of the world. During this edition, consultant Chris Smit of Culture Matters delivered a keynote and the students shared their experiences during a breakout session in small groups moderated by our staff members. A wide range of topics was discussed, from canteen food, work floor socializing to the different coaching styles the students experienced.

We would like to express our gratitude to Hilton for their generous contribution to making this day a joyful and informative experience!
