23-27 June 2009

Ben Mayne, Le Cordon Bleu Professional Industry Placement Manager, recently attended an annual forum conducted by TAITRA (Taiwanese External Trade & Development Council) where he was invited to present as Key Note speaker. The forum was held at the Taipei World Trade Center, Nangang Exhibition Hall, Taiwan from 23rd – 27th June.

Making good use of his time in Taipei, Ben met with three, 5 star, internationally renowned hotels, namely the Sheraton Taipei, Grand Hyatt Taipei and the Shangri-La, Far Eastern Plaza to continue some familiar relationships and also make some new ones. Ben also met with a few well known restaurants including the world renowned, international, Dim Sum chain Din Tai Fung, Tu Hsiao Yueh and Shin Yeh Restaurants. These were all excellent opportunities for Ben to discuss possible future Internship arrangements with these hotels and restaurants. This is yet just another example of Le Cordon Bleu staff working hard to establish more great partnership arrangements for our students around the globe!

Ben also met with a representative of the Taiwanese Tourism Bureau, Ministry of Transportation and Communications, R.O.C., Mr. Kwang-Shoung Chao, Deputy Director, International Affairs Division.

The main purpose of Ben’s visit, however, was to attend the “Internationalisation of Food Services Industry Forum” as Key Note speaker.

Ben’s speech was entitled “21st Century Leaders and Emotional Intelligence” and focused on Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide’s Reflective Practitioner philosophy of teaching, controversially challenging the audiences’ historically conservative ideas of how a manager should think and act and what qualities a successful manager of the 21st Century should posses.
