This week Cycas Hospitality are celebrating the graduation of 15 promising future leaders as part of Cyfari, the hospitality group’s annual leadership development programme.

Candidates of the 8-month programme graduated last week at Moxy and Residence Inn Slough, in front of their mentors, General Managers and senior members of the Cycas Hospitality executive team. As part of the development programme, candidates took part in a range of masterclasses across industry topics including commercial strategy, Health & Safety, IT and People & Culture.

Janet Roberts, Chief People & Culture Officer at Cycas Hospitality, said: “With the largest ever number of graduates taking part this year, I’m incredibly pleased to see this talented team graduate with valuable experiences and essential skills to advance within their career in hospitality.

With candidates this year selected from hotels in London, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Budapest and Paris, alongside off property candidates from our Finance and Development teams, we’re truly working to develop Europe’s best hospitality team, and the Cyfari programme is central to how we build and inspire the talent of tomorrow.”
