Oxford Cultural Collective to co-host skills conference in Bangkok


The Oxford Cultural Collective continues to work with multiple partners in Thailand on projects that address the growing skills gap in the country’s hospitality, food and drinks sectors. As the industry expands, it’s proving difficult to source sufficient numbers of new workers with the requisite skills to meet demand. 


On 12th July the Oxford Cultural Collective and the Asean Professional Beverage Academy will jointly host a one-day seminar at the Grand Hyatt Erawan in central Bangkok, to explore creative solutions to addressing skills shortages faced by hospitality companies across Thailand.  The speakers, all senior representatives of industry, higher education and professional associations, will draw on personal expertise, experience and case studies to identify proven approaches to tackling this significant challenge.

The event will also be used to form a network of dedicated professionals who will work collaboratively to tackle the skills deficit.

The seminar will close with a drinks reception at which OCC Patron Jeremiah Tower will present the inaugural OCC Award (Thailand). This initiative recognises and celebrates the contribution of talented young employees (under the age of 30) working for hospitality companies across Thailand.

Invitations for the skills seminar will be distributed in the near future.  Anyone wishing to attend should contact OCC at laurietebbutt@oxfordculturalcollective.com



Also in partnership with APBA, the Oxford Cultural Collective has accredited a series of one-day courses on wine culture, which are delivered in Bangkok by the Asean Professional Beverage Academy. The courses are designed to up-skill those working in drinks-related roles, and to appeal to interested amateurs.  For more information, follow this link.
