IHM Mumbai is all set to organize its new initiative…
A Global Alumni Meet … in the second half of 2011.
A two-days branded event.
The main purpose of this Alumni Meet is to work together to elevate the image, funding and overall success of IHM Mumbai while strengthening the value of this degree for all alumni. Its vehicle to accomplish these goals is the THANGAM PHILIP MEMORIAL LECTURE series, which the distinguished alumni as well as present students would always look forward to and benefit from.
Day 1. Open House during the day. Evening will be the highlight of this meet : The Thangam Philip Memorial Lecture Dinner . This broadcasted lecture will be followed by a contributory sit-down dinner.
Day 2. Devoted to each batch having its own reunion and its own programme.
Thangam Philip Memorial Lecture will be instituted in 2011 in memory of the former Principal of IHM Mumbai , Padmashree Miss Thangam E Philip who dedicated her life to pioneering hospitality education in the Indian sub continent. The topic of this lecture will be based on any subject of contemporary interest by a GLOBAL THOUGHT LEADER whose ideas have impacted the world for the development and good of humanity.
Alumni of IHM Mumbai are a product of what John Tribe refers to as vocational action oriented curriculum which is industrially relevant. These lecture series are designed around reflective vocational or even liberal reflection space of the hospitality education curriculum designed to develop the person and their powers of mind. It is intended to make a vital contribution to the hospitality industry by inducing managers to think outside the existing practices and paradigms.
A branded event of this nature needs customized logo, brand name, slogan, website with public commenting, postcards, t-shirts, custom PowerPoint layouts and handouts. The second event of the series could be integrated with 60th anniversary of IHM Mumbai in 2014. All of these would work together to produce an amazing branded event that IHM Mumbai alumni would be proud of.
