The Centre for Hospitality Innovation and Leadership (CHIL) envisions a vibrant and dynamic alliance where academia and industry don't just coexist but thrive together, harmoniously drawing from each other's strengths. Our goal is to foster this synergy to catalyse the growth and evolution of the hospitality and tourism industry. By harnessing the power of collaboration in educational development, delivery, and industry-aligned research and consultancy, we aim to significantly enhance the reputation and well-being of hospitality and tourism communities, both locally and globally.



  1. Facilitating joint endeavours in the development and delivery of comprehensive educational and training programmes that meet the needs of our ever-changing industry.
  2. Actively seeking opportunities to provide expert consultancy and conduct research that is tightly aligned with industry needs, with an overarching goal of delivering actionable business solutions for the hospitality and tourism sector.
  3. Cultivating a robust network of collaborations and partnerships with local and international industry players and stakeholders. We believe that through these new partnerships, we can truly drive innovation and growth within the hospitality and tourism industry, leaving a lasting impact for years to come.
