#200 Kate Nicholls, CEO at UKHospitality, on Campaigning for the Future of Hospitality

Welcome to the 200th episode of the Hospitality Mavericks podcast! Today’s episode is a timely conversation, as we are joined by Kate Nicholls, CEO at UKHospitality, a trade group that represents the UK hospitality and tourism industry. With all the big issues that we’re facing – debt, energy, inflation, and so on – how can we not just survive, but thrive? 

Kate answers this question and so much more as we reflect on the impact of global economic pressures. We also discuss strategies for hiring the next generation, the renewed appreciation for hospitality from the average consumer, the importance of investing in training and development – and what we can from the timeless classic ‘Wuthering Heights’.
