Greetings from Toronto!
I made a short video this week with some thoughts about Austria, in advance of the release of my new book about Austrian hospitality!
I went to school for hospitality and tourism in Austria many moons ago, and today Austria remains one of the best countries to visit for a truly top notch experience as a guest. Many of the managers and top executives of some of the world's best hotel chains are from Austria or have been educated there, which is a testament to the approach and passion for hospitality that you'll find in Austria.
I went there myself to dig a little deeper into the particular approach they bring to hospitality, to try to grasp the principles that underlie the experience that you have there as a guest. If you want to find out what I discovered, you'll have to wait for a copy of my book! I'll have more information about that in the coming weeks - it's currently at the printers as we speak.
Also, in celebration of the completion of this passion project, I'm excited to bring a group from Wheel & Anchor there next April to experience the hospitality firsthand. If you're interested in joining us, you can get more information about the Austria: The Heart of Hospitality trip here.

As well, for the women of Wheel & Anchor, we have our Austrian Spa & Wellness program that we're pleased to be running again in 2020! See photos from last year's trip here, and get all the information for the 2020 program here.
