Top 10 Business Leaders


It takes a special kind of leader to oversee the sort of businesses that sit at the top of the boutique hotel tree in the UK. One with compassion, the ability to inspire and thinking that isn’t afraid to step outside the box. Not to mention maintaining a strong business model with many moving parts that all must run efficiently for the bigger machine to function.

When all is said and done, success in the hotel sector boils down to getting customers through the door and bums in beds, providing an experience that makes guests want to come back time and time again.
