About this event

We look forward to welcoming many Channel Islands leaders to our Leadership Conference on Thursday 22 September.

Our long-held ambition is that Guernsey will be recognised as a centre of excellence for leadership. We have chosen the speakers and designed the conference format to stimulate ideas and discussion around what great leadership looks like in practice.

Our aim is to help our conference guests to lead their businesses and organisations forward with a ‘serve to lead’ attitude and achieve phenomenal performance.

We have three guest speakers who will each speak for 20 minutes on leading for future generations before prompting discussion around the tables.

Our mix of speakers, with different experiences, will each share their unique perspectives with the audience.

Ignite your leadership passion and purpose.

  • Sparking new ideas to lead yourself and your organisation forward
  • Excellent opportunity to connect with leaders in the Channel Islands

Horst Schulze

A legend and leader in the hotel world, Horst Schulze's teachings and vision have reshaped the concepts of service and hospitality across industries. Mr. Schulze's professional life began more than 65 years ago as a server's assistant in a German resort town. Throughout the years he worked for both Hilton Hotels and Hyatt Hotels Corporation before becoming one of the founding members of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company in 1983. There Mr. Schulze created the operating and service standards that have become world famous.

During his tenure at The Ritz-Carlton, Mr. Schulze served as President and COO, responsible for the $2 billion operations worldwide. It was under his leadership that The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company became the first service-based company to be awarded the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award — twice.

In 1991, Mr. Schulze was recognized as "corporate hotelier of the world" by HOTELS magazine. In 1995, he was awarded the Ishikawa Medal for his personal contributions to the quality movement. In 1999, Johnson & Wales University gave him an honorary Doctor of Business Administration degree in Hospitality Management. Most recently, Mr. Schulze was honored with the “Legacy of Innovation and Inspiration Award” by Historic Hotels of America.

After leaving The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, Mr. Schulze went on to found The Capella Hotel Group. This luxury hotel company managed some of the most elite properties worldwide, and gave Mr. Schulze the opportunity to further define the luxury hotel industry, receiving countless awards and recognitions.

Today, Mr. Schulze serves as Expert in Residence at Arch + Tower, a boutique, organizational strategy consulting firm. He also recently completed his first book, titled “Excellence Wins.”
