Social media can often feel overwhelming and at time like you’re being inundated with noise. For hotel managers, or any hospitality manager, it can often feel like all that’s out there are influencers who care more about getting the perfect photo of a travel spot, rather than providing content which is truly useful for you. However, there are hospitality leaders in the community that are doing just that, keeping the community up-to-date with the latest trends, news and insights in hospitality.
We’ve previously put together lists of our favourite bartenders and chefs revolutionising hospitality online, and we’re doing it again! Here are ten of our favourite hospitality leaders that will supercharge your journey as a hotel manager
