A hotel or service business is like a theatre

“Every night when the lights go down the show is over another day is done. The next day, no matter what has gone before it, the show will have a new audience, often a first time audience, and today’s show must, at the very least, be better than the day before. The actors who will deliver the show are your people. If you do not invest in them in many ways you will have an average show. After all, what is the point of a beautiful comfortable cosy theatre with great sets, great seats and great lighting if the guys on stage have no idea what they are doing?”

What Our Clients Say

  • Thank you and your great team. This was a huge success, I have already seen the benefit to the team and to the business. What really impressed me was the tailoring of the course to their needs and the manner in which the attendees participated on the course modules. Well done on delivering a brilliant outcome for the Guinness Storehouse. I hope we can continue to work with Conor Kenny and Associates in the future.
  • Companies do not grow, people do. Conor and his team have developed a simple yet effective model to support your people create extraordinary results both within your organisation and with your customers.
  • Conor Kenny & Associates have a genuinely excellent understanding of not only the Hospitality Industry but the fundamentals of running a sound business. They bring an independent thought process to the table. As fresh minds and eyes they have that all-important ability to extract even more from situations and teams than perhaps you thought possible. Experienced, positive, solution driven and intelligent, I'd be very surprised if they cannot help you!
  • I recently had the pleasure of attending Conor and Grace’s of Conor Kenny & Associates, managerial training course. It was incredibly engaging and insightful with learning I will carry with me throughout my career. I couldn’t recommend this training course enough, everyone who is currently in a managerial position or will be in the near future should attend
