We wanted to show there was another way to build and lead businesses.

So Hospitality Mavericks was born.

We wanted to gather together the world’s Mavericks who do things differently from the norm.

They are leaders from all walks of life who have shown and proven that there is a better way forward without cashing out on their values; ripping off their people, community and planet.

That was over ten years ago. Since then we've worked with and interviewed more than 200 leaders, thinkers and experts on the best way to build a business that makes a positive impact on all stakeholders.

We are the home to impactful leaders that KNOW and DO things in a better way.

A network for those seeking a different path.

So don’t just be like the others!

Dare to Be Different ✊
