Service is what you do to someone. Hospitality is how you make someone feel."
"We need to think that hospitality is important, not just in a restaurant, not just in a spa, or a luxury hotel. Hospitality is the secret weapon we need all of us to partake in"

Everyone of us can do great hospitality, its free, it doesn't take extra people, it just takes you all, to think, I can look outward and help someone else. You'll be better with your workmates, with the people who work underneath you...if your a leader, you can lead people better. I think everyone of us can do great hospitality!"
