Keep the children busy this half-term by getting them to become a Mini CEO (Child Entertainment Officer) for Scotland
Radisson Blu has launced a nationwide campaign to find a new ‘Board of Directors’ to help shape the hotel group’s family offering across the UK and Ireland this summer.
It’s on the look-out for a group of Mini CEOs (Child Entertainment Officers) aged between six and 10 from across Edinburgh, Durham, London, Sligo, Limerick and Cork who will, in turn, win a free stay for them and their family at a Radisson Blu of their choice.
The entry requirements are:
– Having a sense of humour
– Like going on holiday and staying in hotels
– Has an outgoing personality
– Enjoys good food
– Not afraid to give their honest opinion
– Has a sense of style
– Can command attention with adults
– Likes jumping on beds and into swimming pools
Candidates must also be available to attend their first meeting with the grown-ups at one of six Radisson Blu hotels in either Edinburgh, Durham, London, Sligo, Limerick and Cork, during the school holidays this August.
They will also be asked to join other Mini CEOs selected from around the UK & Ireland, to attend a group board meeting at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, London in October 2017.
A total of six playful board directors will be chosen to represent the six hotels and as part of their job, they will spend a fun-filled weekend away with their parent or guardian and be asked to fulfil a number of tasks. These will include reviewing the family packs (colouring in skills are a must), eating sweet treats (with their parents’ permission, of course), a tasting in the restaurant (reviewing the food and giving recommendations for new dishes), creating their own ice cream and shaking their own salads.
Their ‘duties’ will also involve reviewing the leisure facilities in the hotels. After all, it’s important to know whether there is enough space for pool inflatables and jumping in!
And hotel staff will need to be on their best behaviour since the Mini CEOs will also be inspecting them for friendliness at check-in, and overall attention to detail on the family experience offered.
Marketing Director Steve Manfield said: “To become a Radisson Blu Flagship Family Hotel, each hotel must have an operational commitment to provide an excellent family experience. Therefore, what better way to test this out, than with the family members that matter the most?
“As a parent myself, I know how travelling with children can be stressful and how a hard earned break can be ruined if the kids are miserable or not suitably catered-for. The search for our Mini CEOs will ensure that we listen and act upon the suggestions of our younger guests, to make the experience a truly memorable one for the whole family.”
The Mini CEO who comes up with their own innovative idea suggested at the group board meeting later in the year will also win a family holiday to Gran Canaria at the newly-opened Radisson Blu Resort Mogan.
