BMIHMS will host the next event in its Leadership Speaker Series (LSS) next month, featuring world-renowned dynamic hotelier and restaurateur Loh Lik Peng as panelist.
The event, to be held on Tuesday 3 May at 4pm AEST, will give students insight into Loh’s incredible career success and rise to becoming an industry leader. He will offer his advice and answer questions from students interested in a career in hospitality management.
Who is Loh Lik Peng?
Loh’s journey to hospitality industry leader has been a unique one. He originally attended law school in England at the University of Sheffield and completed his postgraduate studies at the London School of Economics. Loh became a corporate litigator upon his return to Singapore in 1997, before leaving the profession to step into hospitality. Since then, Loh’s career has gone from strength to strength.
As the Founder and Director of the Unlisted Collection, an umbrella brand that comprises unique, high quality boutique hotel properties and restaurants, Loh is now responsible for 27 properties in Singapore, London, Shanghai and Sydney: seven boutique hotels (including The Old Clare Hotel, which opened in Sydney last July) and 20 restaurants (including, also in Sydney, Automata, Kensington Street Social and Silvereye).
Loh is also a member of Singapore Tourism Board’s (STB) Tourism Consultative Council. In 2004, the Singapore Tourism Board awarded Loh with the “New Tourism Entrepreneur Award” for his work in transforming a simple shop house into Hotel 1929. He was once again awarded the “Tourism Entrepreneur of the Year” award at the Singapore Experience Awards 2011, the most prestigious awards platform in Singapore’s tourism industry.
