Gordon Cartwright – Hospitality Innovation

A key premise to our work is that no single individual can know everything and equally success is not for the exclusive. Cutting edge knowledge and success should be accessible to all at every level. For this reason our consultancy approach majors on sharing the skills and implementing the systems that will drive efficiency and control in your business. We are not passive in our approach, we like to believe our team offer a structured and well managed experience tailored to your business needs.

With extensive contact with literally thousands of hotels, restaurants and suppliers at all levels and in a variety of markets and locations, we believe that when it comes to rationalising efficiency and the path to success we have the right solutions for you.

Many of our clients don’t always realise that the secret to survival, profitable success and awards isn’t always about new strategies, but exploring ways to improve what you currently do. Technology, insight and experience are key to mobilising your brand and operations performance.

The scope of our work is extensive to create a holistic approach to problem solving and upward development. We target inefficiency, structure process and reduce waste whilst strategising a structure of development for both your staff and your business operationally.
