It was a great pleasure and experience to volunteer with my colleagues for the Opportunity 2019 Conference: Revenue Management and the Connected Customer https://www.opportunity2019.co.uk/ in London. The attendees of the one day conference mainly consist of revenue managers as well as CEOs and Founders of start-up companies. The annual conference is one of the well-attended events on revenue management among the revenue management community.
The conference was well organized and very successful. I fully enjoyed the whole conference with so many interesting discussions on several aspects of Revenue Management. The session delivered by Russell Low (Director of Revenue, UK&I, Accor Hotels), Duncan Anderson (CEO, Humanise.AI), Vivek Bhogaraju (Director, Revenue Management Solutions, Expedia Group) and Hampus Ljunggren (Head of Business Development & Partnerships , Travel Appeal) – particularly on Artificial Intelligence and the use of technology to connect customers were very informative. During the conference, the key takeaway was – That the new generation of Revenue Managers need to learn how to unlearn in order to revolutionize how to stand out in the saturated market.
I manage to meet several founders of companies dealing with technology and AI for Revenue Management during the networking sessions. It was an enjoyable and knowledgeable experience and I would like to express my gratitude to Professor Dimitrios and Michelle from Revenue by Design for giving me this opportunity to volunteer and attend the conference. I have definitely benefited very much from this fantastic event.

The MSc Hotel and Food Services Management has as its focus the rapidly developing international hospitality sector which is both a dynamic and expanding part of many economies. As part of the programme we visited the Institute Paul Bocuse in France to experience the research culture and their approach to food research. We learnt how they
- train future professionals, to be competent and open to the world of tomorrow, for industry, and academia.
- lead scientific projects in response to current and future societal challenges.
- innovate, create new methods, new products, and new services.
We had an excellent visit as reflected in these testimonials
The visit to the Institut Paul Bocuse allowed me to shape my dissertation topic further. To meet academics working at the cutting edge of food research was inspiring and a very useful opportunity to discuss what my own research might look like. Food for thought!
It is difficult to express my feelings in a few sentences about 3-day-trip in Lyon. It was an interesting and memorable experience to explore the city’s gastronomic heritage and local cuisine as well as gain more knowledge on food services management from PhD students in Paul Bocuse Institute.
