    Hospitality Meets Veryan Palmer - The Iconic Hotel Director

    Hospitality Meets Veryan Palmer - The Iconic Hotel Director

    Nestled upon a hilltop in a dramatic location is the setting for today's guest. I chat to Veryan Palmer, Director of the iconic Headland Hotel & Spa in Cornwall.
    There's so much joy in todays chat including:-
    The HeadlandStarting as a chalet ChefThe Demands of DogsCliveden HouseMoving to contract cateringThe role of a directorAttention to detailSuper Grammar LadyBridezillasThe Art of HospitalityThe Thursday ClubCommunityMinimum wage for teenagers
    And so much more. Veryan has a superb journey to take her place on the board at one of Cornwall's most shot destinations. She crams in the stories and is also doing some incredible work in her local area which, I believe, we can all take a lead from.
    It was an absolute joy to record this from start to finish.
    Enjoy!

    I don't really know where to begin with this weeks guest. I was welcomed to the (rather beautiful) Mayfair Townhouse (https://www.themayfairtownhouse.com/), part of Iconic Luxury Hotels (https://iconicluxuryhotels.com/) by none other than the Executive Director of the company, and all round hotel giant and gent, Andrew Stembridge.
    Andrew's journey is nothing short of epic and we get through so much, including:-
    The Mayfair TownhouseExpansionStarting outThe joy of personalityThe careers systemFinding what makes you tickSliding DoorsGleneaglesLearning from adversityLearning on the jobSaying yesMalmaisonMoving to the USAAttention to detailThe step up to GMBroken LiftsTaking the Helm at Chewton GlenThe Pandemic responseVulnerability
    And so much more. Despite us spending well over an hour together, I felt like we were only scratching the surface of Andrew's career so far. There's something for everyone in this chat and what a joy it was to record in person and learn about one of the finest hoteliers in the UK.
    Enjoy!

    One of the many joys of hospitality is that it is a global industry, so imagine my delight when today's guest had his people reach out to my people (I have no people) to see if I'd be up for a chat? In looking into his background, I was thrilled to get him on the show.
    I chat to Travis "T-Bone" Talbot (There's a story there), Founder of Hospitality Arts Group (https://hospitalityarts.group/) and all round disruptor and Hospitality Outlaw, as he wonderfully puts it.
    Travis is a joy to chat to and he certainly brings the fun and energy so we get through loads, including:-
    The origins of T-BoneThe Resort experienceCruise shipsWorking round the roleHaving a world class mentorThe importance of a planDealing with the staffing crisisNightclubsMoving into marketing & PRCasino’sDoing less betterPositive StalkingThe Stories of HospitalityThe bartenders night out
    And a whole lot more. We also get stuck into solving the staffing crisis and there may be something new for you in here around that.
    Either way, it's a wonderfully positive chat with one the good guys of the industry,
    Enjoy!

Feeling Like a Rock Star

I love what Phil Street is doing! In addition to shining a spotlight on a fantastic industry with his in-depth conversations with Hospitality leaders, the knowledge you personally gain—while hearing some wild stories—is podcast gold. I was thrilled to even be a guest on Hospitality Meets and felt like a total rock star.
Phil is doing it right. Check it out!
