"My level of English was very poor when I joined Vatel. But I wanted to progress and trusted Vatel to help give me the confidence to express myself in English.
Doing an internship in Ireland scared me at first because I had never lived anywhere but Paris and I dreaded having to speak English all the time.
In the end, I think it's one of my best memories at Vatel. I even remember that I decided to extend my stay through the summer in order to make more progress.
I returned to class with a better professional level and even the confidence to start my career in England. International is the secret to success.”

Upon his return to France 6 years later, the 5-star Villa Maïa hotel opened its doors and became a member of the Leading Hotels of the World* network.
"Being part of the LHW* network is a great honor for a hotel but comes with high standards and procedures to be respected. I was hired in this context.
The project was completed 2 months later and the hotel offered me a position as manager of the Sales department."
