Radisson Blu appoints new board of mini directors

You’re never too young to be the boss!

After a nationwide search and hundreds of entries, hotel brand Radisson Blu has announced the regional winners for its new ‘Board of Directors,’ consisting entirely of children.

Six Mini Child Entertainment Officers (CEOs,) aged between six and ten, have been recruited to help consult on the hotel’s family offerings across Ireland and the UK.

The Mini CEOs for Cork and Limerick are Charlie Phelan of Belfast, aged eight; and Saoirse Davis of Leitrim, aged ten, while our own Freya Fitzgerald, aged seven, will be the Mini CEO for Sligo.

“To become a Radisson Blu Mini CEO, we wanted someone that could demonstrate a sense of humour, with an outgoing personality and not afraid to give us their honest opinion. These Mini CEOs certainly demonstrated that in their video submission,” said Marketing Director Steve Manfield. 

During their working weekends, the Mini CEOs will test their colouring skills, try out the children’s menu, create their own ice-cream, shake their own salads and be provided with currency to spend in the hotel’s restaurant and bar.

Additionally, the kids will be invited to attend a board meeting in October, alongside fellow regional winners from London, Edinburgh and Durham.

During the final task, they will be asked to present a family-friendly idea for Radisson Blu to implement across the company’s UK and Ireland portfolio. The CEO with the best idea will win a family holiday to Gran Canaria at the recently opened Radisson Blu Resort Mogan.

“We’re hoping the suggestions made by Freya, Charlie and Saoirse will make the overall experience a truly memorable one for the whole family,” Mr Manfield said.
