    This presentation first explores the new power of what used to be referred to as ?word of mouth? advertising. Whereas lodging providers used to have to worry that ?an unhappy guest might tell as many as 9-10 others,? today?s guests can become our biggest advocates or our worst nightmares. With the proliferation of online guest reviews and the explosion of social media postings, the level of hospitality and guest service efficiency actually provided to real guests is ?transparent? for the world (and potential future guests) to see. 

    This session first presents an overview of the ?what?s in it for me?? from the perspective of the frontline colleagues; that bringing out the best in others brings out the best in ourselves. It then covers the fundamentals of creating hospitality excellence that managers and supervisors need to mentor, reinforce and measure in order to make it an ?ordinary? experience for guests to receive ?extraordinary? guest service. 

    Note: This webinar will cover the same material Doug Kennedy presented during his keynote speech at the 2015 Regional Seminars.
