The Institute of Hospitality, (IoH) is to launch its first ever industry podcast made by members for members, entitled ‘I’m in’, which is to be hosted by industry icon and podcast aficionado, Phil Street MIH. ‘I’m in’ will launch on international podcast day, 30 September 2021, with subsequent episodes dropping on the last Thursday of every month.
Phil Street, who already hosts the popular podcast series, ‘Hospitality meets…..’, will be discussing an exciting range of topics with IoH members including: mental health, global opportunities to work in hospitality, dealing with adversity and the state of the industry today.
The I’m in panel members will be chosen from the IoH’s broad worldwide membership of individual and corporate members and will be selected based on a strict set of criteria to ensure all levels of membership and the industry are represented. IoH members wishing to join the podcast can contact Phil Street directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As Robert Richardson FIH, the IoH’s CEO explains: “This is a ground-breaking initiative for the IoH. We want to ensure a lively and relevant debate at each of our monthly podcasts, so we will ensure one panellist will be chosen from each of the Institute’s three levels of membership, Associate (AIH), Member (MIH) and Fellow (FIH). They must work in a different hospitality sector than their fellow panellists and be at a different stage in their careers.”
Richardson continued: “For example, we might have a AIH from a hotel, an MIH from a restaurant, and an FIH from a consultancy. The key will be to ensure we have a diverse representation of ages, roles and experience, and panellists who won’t be afraid to answer some tough questions and break some glass ceilings.”
The Institute has also scheduled five special-edition podcasts, to be hosted by Phil Street, which will evolve from the planned monthly format and be fresh and experimental in set-up and content. The five special edition broadcasts will be interspersed between the monthly scheduled broadcasts and will be launched to capture the timely issues and mood of the industry during the next 12 months.
“When Robert asked me if I’d be interested in saying ‘I’m in’ to working with the IoH on the production of their first ever podcast I was super delighted to say yes” explained ‘I’m in’ host, Phil Street. “I’m excited beyond words to see where it will take us and what we will cover throughout our wonderful industry. We’ve got some fabulous guests lined up, along with some very interesting topics and I can’t wait to unleash this” he confirmed.
“Phil Street was our go-to host given his podcast reputation in the industry. We want to bring his professionalism and spirit to our podcast series. I personally can’t wait to see the feedback” comments Robert. ‘I’m In’, the IoHs’ official podcast will be exclusively delivered to the members area of the IoH Website, and by notification to the IoH Connect App each month. Two weeks after release ‘I’m In’ will be made available across all major podcast platforms worldwide.
