Accor today announced the launch of its first global podcast series. The thought-provoking new endeavor will explore trends and human-interest stories in the hospitality sector while celebrating local communities around the world.
The series, titled “Local Voices, Global stories” will routinely feature a discussion with Accor talents in different parts of the world, delving deeper into important subjects, issues and initiatives undertaken in the framework of their daily lives. By bringing these stories to life in the words of the people who know them best, Accor aims to highlight its strong commitment to the diverse communities it calls home.
Charlotte Thouvard, SVP Global Communications, Accor said: “With an eagerness and ability to innovate, Accor continues to lead the world of hospitality, with the goal of pushing new boundaries and challenging social norms. This podcast series gives a voice to some of the group’s most talented people and explores initiatives that are helping shape the hospitality of tomorrow globally, whether in terms of guest experience, innovation, sustainability or contribution to local communities.”
The new series is certain to become a “must listen” among key opinion leaders, business partners, potential talents looking to enter the travel and tourism industry, and clients who are keen to hear from passionate and dedicated people that are shaping the hospitality of tomorrow.
