Earlier this month, we had the privilege of welcoming Mrs. Desirée Dils, an alumna of Hotelschool Maastricht and most recently the General Manager of Kruisherenhotel Maastricht. In a guest lecture to our students, she shared her passion for hotels, F&B and luxury hospitality, aiming to inspire them for their future career.

She emphasized the urgency of teamwork and having a close relationship with your colleagues, something Desiree explained with a quote of Halford E. Luccock. ‘’No one can whistle a symphony, it takes a whole orchestra to play it’. Besides, she urged our students to listen to their heart and that they should follow their dream.

After years of living abroad for her work, of which 15 years in London, Desiree herself took the step to return to The Netherlands and besides her appointment as General Manager in 2021 she also set up her own business, OrganiDes, which is focused on helping people to create an organised home that creates a clear mind and happy life. She now embarks on a new challenge in the new year, which we are all keen to hear more about in due course.

All in all, a story that made students think and which hopefully inspires them for their professional journeys.
