InFocus – Innovation and Emerging Trends in Hospitality

Our latest edition of the psd InFocus offers four very interesting pieces from business leaders and industry experts from within the hospitality and leisure sector.
There are always plenty of new and exciting trends emerging in the hospitality industry.

Hospitality and tourism executive Nicolas Frangos looks at some of the top hospitality industry trends for 2019, including adventurous hotel architecture, unique experiences and well-being for the health conscious traveller.

Continuous change demands ongoing development, and we are delighted to profile the highly acclaimed personal development programmes sponsored by the Master Innholders.  Julia Sibley, CEO of Savoy Education Trust, details the Innholders Scholarship and Master Innholders Aspiring Leaders Diploma (MIALD), which present a wonderful opportunity to help an aspirational leader or manager within your business to gain access to additional world class hospitality education.

As technology continues to transform every industry, hospitality is no exception. Regular columnist, Derek Picot, looks at innovation within the hotels sector – but is technological innovation alone enough to hold a competitive advantage?

The hospitality industry experienced some highs and lows in 2018. I have given some insight into how these impacted hiring trends in the hotel and leisure sector towards the end of last year and into 2019.

psd’s hotels, leisure & travel executive recruitment practice has strengthened the senior team with the arrival of Simon Tucker-Brown. Simon previously worked with us in 2004, and until recently was Managing Director EMEA with HVS. Simon’s arrival enables me to transition into a client facing and delivery role for the next stage of my recruitment career.  We are very excited to be working together again, and look forward to supporting you in your recruitment efforts throughout 2019.
