AS part of TPs concerted efforts to maximise
real-life learning opportunities for its students, 400
specially selected students had the rare chance to provide
their service at the Singapore IMF-World Bank Meetings
held in September 2006 at Suntec City. In fact, TP was
the only tertiary institution engaged by Suntec Singapores
management to assist in its operations.
The students were selected based on their aptitude
in the areas of leisure, hospitality, tourism and culinary
skills to ensure that the delegates were provided with
the best service. In addition, they all had to be GEMS
(Go the Extra Mile for Service) certified.
Among these students from the Hospitality & Tourism
Management, Leisure & Resort Management and Culinary
& Catering Management courses, 13 were specially
selected to serve high level VIPs and assist the directors
of Suntec Singapore.
