Compass Hospitality’s President & CEO Harmil Singh was invited to address the 30th Graduation Ceremony of SHATEC (Singapore Hotel and Tourism Education Centre), Singapore’s first hospitality school set up in 1983.
Held at University Cultural Centre on 20 November 2015, the event hosted more than 850 attendees including 479 graduands, scholarship recipients, parents and guests, board directors, partners and guest-of-honour Dr. Koh Poh Koon, Minister of State for Trade and Industry.
Invited as the alumnus from SHATEC’s first batch of graduands, Harmil said “While it has been decades since my learning and training days at SHATEC, that period has been the grounding that fostered my passion for the hospitality industry. SHATEC wasn’t just about coupling practical training with academic studies. The educators and trainers also instilled in us the ethical and moral attributes of good business practices. Many of us embraced these principles which have benefitted our careers and personal lives.”
The graduands received their certificates and diplomas from wide-ranging courses including Culinary Arts, Pastry & Bakery, Food & Beverage Supervision, Hotel & Accommodation Services, MICE & Events, Culinary Skills and Hotel Management.
