PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD: MICHEL BRAS

Michel Bras, à fleur d’Aubrac (in French)

What a challenge to take on this presidency !

I could never take the place of all the teaching expertise at ISTHIA. The final word will always rest with the women and men who teach within the framework of the institute.

My role. To put it bluntly, I would like you to benefit from my experience. My professional career has offered me the opportunity to provide you with an insight into my experience, so that you may work towards your own achievements. Another perspective on its identity, in love with its time. Far removed from certain ways of doing things!

I would like to give you confidence in the future. The path you have chosen is rich in humanity. We are merchants of happiness. As such, I would like professions of Reception to escape from certain clichés. Tourism establishments should carry a more soulful feel that they too often lack. And beyond movements of any type of influence, food should always find just the right dose of Common Sense.

Besides, being a merchant of happiness means loving each other. It is my hope that the management of our companies and the development of our regions takes a different direction…

So that, enriched with this know-how and sense of being, it can overcome the stereotypes. In other words, give meaning to your passion.”

Chef
