Summary

LESSONS IN IRISH HOUSING seeks to merge the market knowledge of a long career with input from housing policy theory and lessons from our historical housing experience. The objective is to offer the reader a pragmatic understanding of the complexity of Irish housing and housing policy, briefing him / her on the importance of a long-term balanced housing objective, part of a complex system, that should be managed based on rational long-term needs, rather than responding to emotive, short-term pressures. Frank Ryan proves we have an under-performing housing system that lacks balance. More importantly, our housing system lacks knowledge, innovation and effective leadership. Using a flawed or out-of-date housing system is a very inefficient manner to address a modern housing crisis!

    How to overcome barriers to the long-term investments that are essential for solving the world’s biggest problems 
    There has never been a greater need for long-term investments to tackle the world’s most difficult problems, such as climate change and decaying infrastructure. And it is increasingly unlikely that the public sector will be willing or able to fill this gap. If these critical needs are to be met, the major pools of long-term, patient capital—including pensions, sovereign wealth funds, university endowments, and wealthy individuals and families—will have to play a large role. In this accessible and authoritative account of long-term capital investment, two leading experts on the subject, Harvard Business School professors Victoria Ivashina and Josh Lerner, highlight the significant hurdles facing long-term investors and propose concrete ways to overcome these difficulties. 
    Presenting the best evidence in an engaging way by using memorable stories and examples, Patient Capital describes how large investors increasingly want and need long-run investments that have the potential to deliver greater returns than those in the public markets. Yet success in such investments has been the exception. Performance has suffered from both the limitations of investors and the internal structure of their fund managers, often resulting in the wrong incentives and a lack of long-term planning. 
    Yet the challenges facing long-term investors can be surmounted and the rewards are potentially large, both for investors and society as a whole. Patient Capital shows how to make long-term investment work better for everyone.

    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.
