This is Keystone HPD’s 10th anniversary and the 300th episode of the Hospitality Property School and you are in the right place.

Continue listening and I’ll tell you why.

Welcome to this special edition of Hospitality Property School.

I am your instructor, Gerry MacPherson.

.

.

Welcome to the 10th anniversary of Keystone Hospitality Property Development and the 300th episode of the Hospitality Property School and for all of you here with me now, your timing is impeccable. We are celebrating and if you stay until the end, I’ll tell you how you’re going to benefit.

.

If you are new to us, let me give you an idea of what Keystone HPD and the Hospitality Property School are all about.

.

As our mission statement states…

“We want to help, with patience and care, develop a strategic vision for every

independent hotel, resort, inn, bed and breakfast etc. wishing to

create a happy and fulfilling experience for their guests and employees.”

.

And after the last couple of years we have had as an industry, this statement could not be more important.

.

Let me tell you a little about myself.

.

Back in the very early 90s, I had the pleasure or displeasure of working in a small independently operated hotel. Now don’t get me wrong, the owner was a super nice guy, the other staff were fun and for the most part, the guests were tolerant, but to be totally honest, none of us had a clue what we were doing. That was not a formula for long-term success.

.

After a year and a half of faking our way, we realized that we were in a race to the bottom and the owner threw in the towel. He sold the business at a considerable loss.

.

With no proper training and not knowing how to be successful in the hospitality property industry, I decided it was time to change career paths and began giving daily tours of my hometown, Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada. After a year, I began offering tours throughout the province and then across Canada. Within a couple of years, I was touring the world with groups.

.

Over the next couple of decades, I designed, set up and ran group travel with some of the best-known tour and travel companies in the world.

.

I had spent thousands of nights in properties of all sizes and classes worldwide, conducted countless site inspections, as well as received feedback from 100,000’s of customers.

.

This knowledge was amazing and gave me a unique insight into the wants, needs and requirements of individual and group travellers, as well as management and employees.

.

I have seen how and why successful properties were successful and why unsuccessful properties were unsuccessful.

.

In 2012, I along with a couple of colleagues had the idea of sharing the vast knowledge we had picked up over the years with independent hospitality properties that didn’t have the support that chain properties could fall back on.

.

For years, we have been sharing a lot of free content and information with independent property owners and managers through our weekly episode posts, YouTube videos and podcasts, both the Hospitality Property School and more recently the INNsider Tips. The content ranges from starting a hospitality property, organizational strategies, employee development, marketing and future trends.

.

We provide strategies for, and aid in the growth and development of hotels, resorts, inns, bed & breakfasts etc. to create their brand and goals; as well as increase their bookings and profit while keeping their integrity.

.

We have given away a treasure trove of free information and don’t have any plans of stopping, so if you have not done so yet, we encourage you to sign up,

.

.

We have proven methods you can start using today for your business.

.

Now I said we give away a treasure trove of information for free but there is so much more we can offer you. At the beginning of this episode, I mentioned that we are celebrating and we want you to benefit.

.
