We’ve been spotlighting some of our Beedie Luminaries and will continue this feature over the coming months, however, we’d also like to feature the Mentors who have generously volunteered their time to support our inaugural cohort! Meet mentor, John O’Neill who is the Chief Executive Officer of AHIP. He is an accomplished hospitality professional with over 30 years of experience in hotel investment, development and management.
Why did you decide to become a mentor with Beedie Luminaries?
I’m inspired by education and by Beedie’s passion for philanthropy. And honoured to give back.
What was the best advice you were ever given by your mentor?
Be prepared for every meeting you attend. And, good things happen when you show up!
What would you tell your 18 year-old self now?
Dont sleep-walk through university! Take advantage of those years (18-21) to do more than attend classes. Do something and be passionate.
