the 27th of October, the Glion Alumni Student-Network Event
successfully took place in Skyline with the goal of strengthening the bond
between alumni and the current student body, as well as to reward students who
have been performing beyond expectations. The alumni, with backgrounds ranging
from established hotel groups to luxury menswear, met, conversed and dined with
current Glion campus students who have been identified as being academically
excellent and highly motivated.
event started off with some light conversation and cocktail as more alumni
trickled into the Skyline bar. Mr. Guy Bentley, CEO of Glion Worldwide, made an
appearance to welcome the alumni and assure all that the Glion brand is
continuously directed for improvement; detailing plans for the enhancement of
infrastructure and attaining new accreditation. The night continued with more
drinks and a spectacular buffet courtesy of the always excellent F&B
department. Students made connections with the alumni, asked them questions and
received generous advice which they would, with no doubt, put into good use.
Alumni members also caught up with one another, and even met new faces from
different graduation years, which ranged from 1985 to 2013.
became apparent that much has changed in Glion for the alumni as they reminisced
into their respective pasts here, but one thing is for sure: it has become a
better place. Change will always come but, as the alumni and students have
proven in this event, the Glion Spirit is eternal. It is hoped that this type
of events will perpetuate far into the future with Glion, while establishing a
cycle of connection and network.
heartfelt thanks to the alumni guests, student attendees, Sandra Meier and the
AAG, the F&B department, Guy Bentley and his management team, the GASN
student committee and countless others for the continuous help and
