The Hotel Inspector and Me

I've recently finished a project helping Alex Polizzi AKA The Hotel Inspector with her work at Churston Court in Devon. I was retained to do the training needed to get the staff up to speed. The programme is currently playing on My5 here (I'm on at 35 mins!). Alex was very complimentary about my work and, as you can see in the programme, said that the "training is paying off".

I've chopped the video about a bit so it focuses on my contribution and you can see that if you click below.

I've already had a lot of positive interest in me training other businesses following the broadcast. Please let me know if you would like me to help you.
