    Before moving to academia and working as senior lecturer within BUAS, Michel has been working several years in the hospitality industry. After completing his internship with Sheraton in Mexico, he moved to Belgium and worked as banqueting & conference manager and sales manager in Brussels. Michel has complemented his work experience in the hospitality industry with the following qualifications: PhD at Sheffield Hallam University (based on research into food services in healthcare – this involved a case study of Compass Group and the NHS); MA in Social Science Research; MBA in Hospitality Management (IMHI); BSc. in Hospitality Management (Glion Hotel School). Michel’s research interest is within the academic discipline of public health nutrition.
