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!

    Through consultation, programmes and speaking engagements, Dr Vikki Barnes supports organisations across industries in making the most of people and creating cultures that people are proud to be a part of. It was an honour to have Vikki return to the show for the second time, as we find out what she has been up to since we spoke in July 2020, including some insights from her latest book ‘Free Happiness’.
    In this episode, we explore how organisations can build a happy culture for their people, what we can learn from the Stoics, having reflective time, why vulnerability is key to navigating the unknown, and why happiness should be an index measured across society.

    #191 John Mason, Founder of Sideways, on Continuous and Spontaneous Learning

    Today’s guest, John Mason, has a deep purpose of trying to make learning better and easier for everyone. He is the founder of Sideways, a hospitality learning and knowledge-sharing platform that helps teams to get better every day. We dive into John’s story and why he built Sideways, and how John struggled with the traditional ways of learning in school and the early parts of his career. 
    This was a fascinating conversation where John shares their company philosophy of “Help One Help Many”, how we learn better together, and how we can find knowledge and learning from everywhere, and hospitality brands like Pizza Pilgrims have leveraged learning.
