Supporting sports players after they retire. Many retire from sport from the ages of 35 down to as young as 20 and find it very hard to adapt to a world where they can not rely on their sporting abilities. These are still young talents with some great skills that can be of real benefit in many disciplines and environments.
They can set Hospitality apart and set the tone for the future. In a world that is becoming increasingly digital, we argue that people are as important as ever and need to work together to really find and support talent and new leaders.

Reinvention is about creating change in one’s career and life – engaging new social networks, new challenges, new skills, seeing a different perspective. One could argue that is about developing a bespoke individualised marketing campaign but this would be too simplistic….
“Be prepared to reinvent yourself…
…be prepared to go out on a limb occasionally, and be prepared to do the things that you feel strongly about.” – – Hillman Curtis
