Hi, I’m Ted Schama, joint managing partner of Shelley Sandzer and I’ve been in the game for over three decades. 
I love public speaking and in fact, I love the people and the characters in my industry.
Its in the nature of hospitality to talk and engage and likewise for property people to network.
So loving the chat and the sector meant only one thing… a podcast to bring them all together
There are plenty of successes and at the same time, plenty of struggles
I think its important to share our worlds with you.
Over the series, I’m going to talk to some of the industry’s leading figures, hear their stories, and really make this the conversation starter for our industry. Subscribe for the ongoing series and I hope you enjoy it.
