Inaugural AccorHotels Indigenous Scholar at ICHM

Kenneth Abrook is a proud Kaurna man, and our first ever Indigenous Scholar at the International College of Hotel Management (ICHM) in Adelaide.  Kenneth started out with ibis Adelaide in 2017 as a Food and Beverage Attendant before quickly picking up extra responsibilities based on his skills, experience and desire for more.
Upon completion of his studies Kenneth will receive a Bachelor of Business in Hospitality Management. After receiving the scholarship he said “I see my career in hospitality going so much further than I first expected. I am looking to either get into Events, Brand Development or Talent and Culture.”
Kenneth also stated that the scholarship will arm him “with the tools as well as the industry specific knowledge and certifications to help achieve these career goals. Also I think it would be a great opportunity to build lasting relationships with like-minded people.”

Congratulations Kenneth on your appointment, we can’t wait to see what else you achieve.
