Live event – Hotel Success Handbook at the UK Business Book Festival

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Author Lucy Whittington is speaking at the first UK Business Book Festival on 10th September 2010 in Bournemouth, where she’ll be sharing marketing and website tips for hoteliers and anyone else who’d like to come along.

Her talk is going to focus on adding personality into your marketing to get results, so there’s new content that’s not in the Hotel Success Handbook so don’t think Lucy will just be repeating herself!

As a bonus Lucy is also on a panel at the festival too – discussing how to use Social Media to promote your business “Social Media – How do we make it Pay”, so you get the chance to listen to her twice!

And as if Lucy was not enough, local hotelier Mark Cribb from the Urban Beach hotel and Urban Reef Restaurant is also speaking and sharing his business story and experiences of setting up his own hospitality businesses in Bournemouth too.

There are also one or two slightly more high profile speakers than Lucy at the event too – such as Rachel Elnaugh, one of the original Dragons from the Den, Geoff Burch, star of BBC’s Over the Shop, Brad Burton founder of 4N networking and author of Get off Your Arse (a great book), Graham Davies, author of Bare Knuckle Brilliance for Every Presenter, and Guy Clapperton, to name a few… but NONE of them is talking about hotel marketing, so that’s why you need to come and listen to Lucy!

The event is being held at the Executive Business Centre, part of Bournemouth University (coincidentally where Lucy studied for her MBA). Again here’s the link to find out more about the UK Business Book Festival

It will only cost you £10 to come and listen to Lucy (or any other speaker), or £35 for the whole day for all speakers which includes a £10 token to buy a book with.

Lucy looks forward to seeing you there!
