Meet the Program Director: Sydney

  • Francisco Vasconcellos smiling
    Senior Program Manager (Business, Entrepreneurship); Senior Academic Team

    Francisco has over 10 years’ experience in business. Following his Bachelor’s graduation at ICMS, Francisco embarked on a Hospitality Management career that saw him hold senior leadership roles in a variety of properties, across both Rooms Division and Food & Beverage. With a strong desire and ability to lead and develop his teams, Francisco became passionate about mentoring young leaders in the development of their careers.

    This passion led him to complete the Master of Science in Coaching Psychology (executive and workplace coaching) at Sydney University, where he further developed his ability to encourage personal and professional change. Francisco’s increased interests in nurturing success led him to cofound an online coaching company aimed at supporting students as they pursue academic success. Francisco returned to ICMS in June 2017, and has since lectured in the areas of Leadership Development, Career Planning and Strategy, HR and Hospitality.
