Oscar Hollis is The Boss

Oscar Hollis was a fantastic boss of the Ashford International Hotel for a day!

The experience was his prize for winning Inspire Schools ‘Be the Boss’ competition. He wrote the best letter persuading one of his friends to join in the walk to school. Congratulations Oscar!

The day’s activities included working with the sales and marketing team on an event featuring Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke and his professional dance partner Erin Boag.

Oscar also conducted an interview for a head chef position, inspected four of the hotel’s 179 bedrooms, safety-checked the gym equipment, and enjoyed a tasty lunch.

The Be the Boss contest was run by the KM Charity Team to encourage youngsters to express themselves creatively and consider the benefits of green travel.

Oscar said he was “so excited” to have won and the head chef interview was one of the things he enjoyed the most, adding: “I’m happy that I gave her the job.”

He concluded: “I had a really good day and I kept the staff on their toes!”
