#hotelNEXT  is a student competition where aspiring young developers have the chance to showcase their bold and inspiring ideas and recommendations on leading hotel concepts and redesign. From across Canada, students will put their ‘education into action’ and win a cash prize.

MENTORS

WANT TO BE A MENTOR?

Donate your time and expertise and help students redesign their dream hotel! Once students have assembled their Teams and completed some initial brainstorming, they are able to contact a Mentor for support with their #hotelNEXT submission, which is where you would come in! All that is involved is some of your time, guidance, advice, answering students questions about their development project. You can participate as much as you want via phone calls, social media posts, twitter or our LinkedIn group.

Contacting a Mentor has been made mandatory. Mentors are required to sign off on the Teams project endorsing that they have reviewed it and believe students will be submitting quality work.

Out of professional courtesy, the students have been asked to introduce themselves via email and schedule a 30 minute meeting (in person, by phone, by video-conferencing, etc). Prior to the meeting, students will send you an outline of their #hotelNEXT project and list of questions, so everyone can be prepared.
