'One to Watch': Award winning student shortlisted for another prestigious award
Fresh from her visit to the Houses of Parliament to receive her Institute of Travel and Tourism 'Student of the Year' award, Ana Seidi has now also been announced as one of just three short-listed candidates in yet another prestigious travel industry final.
The 2019 Revolut Everywoman in Travel Awards celebrates inspirational women at all stages of their careers in the travel industry. It seeks to uncover role models and to help encourage more women and young girls to consider a career in the travel industry.
Selected for the category of “ One to Watch”, Ana most definitely fits the criteria of being a young game-changer under the age of 25 who demonstrates a passion for the travel industry. Nominated by Lisa Gorton from the the Centre for Tourism and Hospitality Management and seconded by her placement employer, Valerie Donaldson from Radisson Blu in Leeds, the final takes place in early December in London – fingers crossed for this fabulous alumna of the School!
Lisa worked for 17 years in Industry before taking on her role at our University. Her experience spans small and large tourism organisations within the tour operating and retail distribution sector where she managed multi-million pound budgets and revenue streams.
