Q. What are you most looking forward to at HEC this year?

Houdré: I love sharing my experience with students and peers and always like learning new things during conferences.

Q. What do you want your audience to take away from your event?

Houdré: Since I was born in a hotel and worked for 40 years in hotel management, I can say that my life is all about hospitality, and my passion is about sustainable hospitality.

Q. What is something that you have "Dared to Do" ?

Houdré: I have advocated for the Triple Bottom Line since 2005 when not many were convinced about our responsibility towards Environment Protection and Social Responsibility.
