The Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series (DDLS) brings prominent industry professionals to speak at SHA most Fridays during the fall semester. For 2014, students work in pairs each week to research, meet, and profile featured speakers, and then guest-blog here about the experience.
This week’s student authors are Nikol Limaduran ’15 and Patrick Tan ’16.
Mr. Keith Barr ’92 is chief commercial officer of InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG).
Mr. Barr’s visit as a DDLS speaker was comprehensive and overall extremely positive. His extensive experience as a global hotelier has given him a broad perspective on the hospitality industry, and framed his forward-thinking mindset.
