Weatherdon’s innovation scholarship award 2017

Weatherdon Scholarship 2017
Recieving the award is Marius Lie from The International College of Management
Presented by Elizabeth Heusler (R) Public Relations Manager for Weatherdon

The Weatherdon Project scholarship to promote innovation in the hospitality industry is given each year to a hospitality student of The International College of Management.

This year’s winner is Marius Lie from Norway who came up with an innovative idea for an electronic trolley for housekeepers to automate and streamline tasks. 

As Robert Weatherdon was overseas, our public relations manager, Elizabeth Heusler awarded the prize on his behalf at the award ceremony at the College in Manly.

Marius’s proposal for an innovative product or service in the hospitality industry saw him scoop the scholarship which includes a Mac Pro computer, the opportunity to spend time at Weatherdon’s head office in Sydney for first hand industry insights, travel, accommodation and an invitation to hear from the doyens of the industry at the IHACE conference in Melbourne.

The scholarship is a way for the Weatherdon family to support the growth of the Australasian hospitality sector.

Weatherdon’s association with the ICMS is to encourage a new generation of professionals to share ideas and have a real opportunity to put innovative perspectives into practice.
