#180 The Six Tenets of Agile Hospitality

This week’s episode takes a different turn – the spotlight is on myself with my amazing co-author Nicole Antonio Gadsdon from BananaPepper HR, hosted by the great John Porter of ShielPorter Communications. In this special episode, we unpack our whitepaper ‘Six Tenets of Agile Hospitality: 6 Tenets Every Leader Needs to Survive and Thrive in the New Era of Hospitality’

It took more than 12 months of research and writing, plus the team’s combined experience and we have hugely appreciated all your great feedback since we released this paper in September. Tune in to this interview as we unpack the key takeaways from this whitepaper, what holds businesses back from growing, and why you need to give yourself the gift of time to reflect. Get your access to the whitepaper in the link below.
