Summary

When Cy Flood applied for work as a holiday rep, his reasons were simple. He wanted to party like crazy, booze like there was no tomorrow and pull like it was going out of fashion! In his ten years working for holiday companies as a rep, Cy has seen it all. From Lanzarote to Ibiza, from Palma to the Greek Islands, there have been flying cockroaches, flying televisions, drunken pub crawls, angry clients, wild sex and a TV crew on the scene. There are tales so tall that they defy belief. As well as the sun, sea, sand and shameless excess, a shockingly true picture of life as a travel rep is exposed; a world of violent crime, corruption and drug dealing. Cy's confessions allow us to peep into a world we all see from the outside but wish we knew more about.Confessions of a Holiday Rep is a truly behind the scenes picture of the resort scene and a real eye-opener for any holiday maker. A funny, honest and crazy must have summer read that will make you laugh, shudder and maybe even cry!

    Smollett describes in great detail the natural phenomena, history, social life, economics, diet and morals of the places he visited. Smollett had a lively and pertinacious curiosity, and, as his novels prove, a very quick eye. He foresaw the merits of Cannes, then a small village, as a health-resort, and the possibilities of the Corniche road.

    Readers worldwide appreciate Professor Drake’s friendly, conversational English-language writing style. Never academic or boring, Professor Drake writes about cultural differences with a sense of humor and insight developed over a lifetime of international living and learning.
     
    The author is a retired American professor of international business management at the University of Texas, a world-traveler and experienced expatriate, a valued consultant to multi-national corporations, and a respected author of a 30-volume library on building and managing cross-cultural relationships.

    Dancing at the Fountain: In Conversation with World-leading Hoteliers is a unique book of conversations and interviews by Conor Kenny, a leading hotel and hospitality learning and development expert. The hoteliers interviewed in the book include: Kiaran MacDonald, The Savoy Hotel, London; Philippe Leboeuf, Mandarin Oriental, Paris; Nathalie Seiler-Hayez, The Connaught Hotel, London; Michael Davern, The K Club, Ireland; Bernard Murphy, Gleneagles, Scotland; Greg Liddell, The Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona; Luc Delafosse, Hôtel de Crillon, Paris. Between them, these seven hoteliers have run some of the world’s most iconic and well-known hotels: Āman Resorts; Carlyle Hotel, New York; Claridge’s, London; Connaught Hotel, London; Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Arizona; Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver; Fancourt, South Africa; Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland; Hotel Burj Al Arab, Dubai; Hôtel de Crillon, Paris; Hôtel du Louvre, Paris; Hôtel Lutetia, Paris; Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong; Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona; Mandarin Oriental, Paris; Sandy Lane, Barbados; The K Club, Kildare; The Ritz Hotel, London; The Savoy Hotel, London; and Waldorf Astoria, Beverly Hills. Their stories are unique, sometimes emotional, always deeply personal and absolutely absorbing: greeting the great and the good, from presidents and heads of state to pop celebrities; quelling rioters by serving them breakfast; hosting the Ryder Cup golf tournament; dealing with bomb threats and possible evacuation of an entire hotel the morning Nelson Mandela is due to arrive; managing egos; opening new hotels and reviving the old, while still keeping the spirit that made them great. While all of the interviewees share the distinction of managing the best hotels in the world, their career paths are as individual as their stories. Unsurprisingly, hard work features in the hoteliers’ meteoric career rises – as does a focus on service, attention to detail and a love of people, guests and staff alike. Their insight on the future of luxury hotels also makes compelling reading from a rarely-heard source. The book will make fascinating reading for anyone interested in a glimpse behind-the-scenes of the very best hotels in the world. It will be especially valuable for today’s hotel managers as well as upcoming hoteliers who want to understand how the best hotels are run and what took these seven people to the very top of their industry. The book provides a unique perspective on the world of luxury and caring for the rich and the famous through the eyes of those who run some of the world’s iconic hotels.
