About Hostmanship; Creating purpose driven human experiences

How excited are you to go on an Urban Safari to an undisclosed location? What makes you a memorable and beloved leader? What about your grandmother’s cooking makes you feel at home? Why do we choose one of fifty pictures to post online, how can some people remember your special days and always take time to surprise you? Are you a host only in uniform or also in the real world?  Such and many more questions will be delved and practiced during inspiration and valuable sessions with academic and industry experts while working to uncover and refine your art of hostmanship in today’s world and the future. Did we not mention, Campfires sessions in the minor?

Minor content

In this minor you will learn and experience how to move towards being a welcoming host that treats yourself and others to feel appreciated, seen and feeling welcome. You will see that by doing something unexpected in your interaction with someone, you easily create a wow-feeling. Just by being curious and open minded. Based on theories in the field of humanism, positive psychology, sociology, hospitality and Hostmanship, you are going to work on real-life hostmanship Challenges that represent all the above aspects. Inspiration will be offered during guest lectures, Safari-field trips, inspirational sessions: five senses, Intercultural Awareness and Sensitivity, Behaviour and Photography. Participant observation technique, emotions, commercial friendships and campfire sessions to make a cocktail of a sustainable behaviour change for you in your private and your future career.
