Widely known for his success in the hospitality industry, Dubrule has travelled the world to spread his knowledge.He's also been to Tibet many times in recent years saying the Tibet he's seen with his own eyes impresses him so much for its landscape as well as for its economic development.

In addition to his reputation in the hospitality industry, Dubrule is also a former member of the French parliament. Six years ago, at the age of 68, he travelled by bicycle to Tibet setting out from Paris. The 8-month, over 15,000-kilometer journey was an eye-opener for him and completely changed his views on Tibet.
