Robert Aronson, Director of the Idea Workshop with many years of marketing experience, held a workshop on June 5th, 2020 for the Aspira International Tourism and Hospitality Management students entitled “Strategies and Innovation”.
In addition to professional and practical knowledge, he shared some thoughts that could further guide our students in their process of maturing and forming as individuals.
Mr. Aronson believes that one of the most important things for people at younger age is to listen to the advice of those who know more and whose careers prove the correctness of their decisions. It is very important to be ready to notice the other side of the story and realize that our opinion or attitude is not the most important one and that in many cases it depends on the aspect of those observing.
He adds that the process and step towards higher education is very important for every individual, but only if it is taken seriously. A superficial understanding of college education and a lack of motivation to learn cause a great missed opportunity. This is especially true of the internship offered by Aspira from the first year of study. Professional practice is an exceptional advantage of this study over others because it immediately allows you to see everything that a particular job brings and to be ready for it when you step into the job market. Precisely because of this, you have a great advantage over your colleagues who are encountering practical tasks for the first time and this is what will set you apart from the crowd.
We thank Mr. Aronson for taking the time to work with our Tourism students and sharing his knowledge and experiences with them on this occasion.
