Find out from International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) alumni guest speakers at the ICMS Open Day 2022.

ICMS Open Day: Where, when and what time

The ICMS Open Day 2022 will take place on 7 August between 10am and 2pm at the ICMS Northern Beaches Campus located in Northern Beaches, Sydney, NSW.

All the action showcasing what ICMS offers takes place in and around the grounds of the famous ‘castle on the hill’ overlooking Manly Beach.

ICMS Alumni Guest Speakers Share their Secrets to Success  

  • Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park General Manager Nauman Hasan – A Hotel General Manager’s Hospitality Career Tips
  • Budgy Smuggler General Manager Brenden Hartmann – From Manly to a Global Multinational Success
  • Google Cloud Partnership Development Manager Rika Schoening – Secrets in the World of Tech
  • Ralph Lauren Retail Buying & Merchandise Manager Penelope Bell – Tips for the Fashion Industry

The guest speakers represent ICMS alumni around the world who have graduated from the ‘castle on the hill’ fully prepared – and empowered to forge their careers in the industry of their choosing.

“ICMS equipped me with industry knowledge and work experience which gave me a great foundation to build my hotel career,” Sheraton GM Nauman Hasan said.

“I met people from various cultures and backgrounds and learned about diversity and inclusion. It was the start of a great journey which I am very proud of and thoroughly enjoyed.”

Budgy Smuggler General Manager Brenden Hartmann has taken on ICMS students as interns in the Northern Beaches-based company. This is part of his way of giving back to his alma mater.

“My ICMS degree gave me a sound understanding of the basic principles upon which businesses operate. From straight forward, black-and-white scenarios – like accounting – to more complex areas, like managing conflict and forging strategic relationships, everything I learned has come in handy,” he has said previously.
