Sean Dunne

from Switzerland , graduated in 2017

Studying at IMI gave me the work-ethic to achieve external success. IMI was an excellent stepping stone to gain industrial insights and learn about success, failure and facing challenges along the way. I love how my job expands the reaches of what hospitality has to offer. Also, I get to travel to exotic and new places!
