The Annual Chairman’s Ball & Aspiring Manager’s Awards organized by the Institute of Hospitality, London branch took place on 28th October 2011 in a glittering ceremony at the newly re-opened Four Seasons Hotel, Park Lane, London.
I was there to attend the same as part of RateTiger’s partnership with IoH. The audience comprised of many of London’s top hoteliers and elite hospitality industry professionals. The event was interesting with this year’s theme being ‘Masked Ball’. The evening started with guests pleasantly posing for photos upon their arrival, thereby moving on to their dinner tables and soon the much awaited Aspiring Manager Awards were announced.
The winner of the evening was Nikki Goodwin (picture right) from Ramada Southport, who unfortunately could not make it to the event. The hotel GM Enda Rylands collected the Award on Nikki’s behalf. Once the excitement of the awards was over, guests had the pleasure of masked dancing and enjoyed the live band, Versatility.
