EVERY other MONDAY
RISE is a weekly web show co-hosted by Demian Hodari, Associate Professor at Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) and Anita Mendiratta, Special Advisor to the Secretary General of the UNWTO. Together with an array of industry leaders, they discuss how the Travel, Tourism and Hospitality industry is making sense of each ‘next normal’ of our COVID-19 world. Join us as students, recent graduates, industry professionals and other job seekers from across the world come together.
We are every other Monday LIVE, or watch anytime here at rise-weekly.com.
It’s all about keeping us all updated, uplifted, connected and confident in a uniquely fun, fresh and personal way.

"By engaging with current and future leaders in travel and tourism, RISE is shining a light on what is needed to ensure the industry can rebound, notwithstanding tumultuous times. It was an privilege to take part in this forward-thinking virtual initiative."
"It was an honour to be part of RISE, as it has really become a brand, and a platform known to share industry reality. The atmosphere created, all preparations done, to ensure almost a living-room environment, on zoom, a skill, or rather a talent! Our discussion was one of the most engaging, positive and open dialogues on our every-day changing industry!“
“RISE is an important resource and I welcomed the opportunity to appear as a “Guest Executive” to provide insight into the insurance industry, the issues and the solutions needed to help restart travel. The world has been in shock for the last 9 months, the virus caught us off guard. Leaders, Health professionals and everyday people have been trying to understand how to be safe, what to do and how or when we will get back to something we recognize. RISE has proven to be an inspirational positive space to learn and be inspired with the confidence to find our way forward."
Thank you, Anita and Demian, for facilitating a very professional, well-presented RISE webinar that I participated in on the 18th January 2021. The bringing together of a significant amount of insights in a very challenging time in the hospitality industry, will always be remembered and especially for your commitment to our industry.
"In an industry that is still very much in denial, RISE asks the difficult questions - and fosters a debate on how to forge ahead."
"Being part of such an innovative and valuable project was exciting and a real honour, I wish the team huge success for the future series.”
