Diageo Learning for Life kicked off December in style by supporting the Greater Miami & The Beaches Hotel Association for the second year in a row at its 3rd Annual Hospitality Leadership Awards.

Regional Learning for Life Manager, Janelle Prieto, spoke to the attentive crowd of hospitality leaders about the value and impact of the Learning for Life program. Hotel General Managers, Food & Beverage Directors and the like were presented with the opportunity to hire Learning for Life graduates – helping themselves while helping others.

Wendy Kallergis, President of the Greater Miami & The Beaches Hotel Association and a strong advocate of Learning for Life, delivered a warm speech in which she thanked Diageo and the FIU Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management for supporting the Association and its members. “We look forward to further growing this productive partnership,” Kallergis said.
