“You have a seed, maybe even an acorn, of an idea to start, invest in, or renew a hotel or a restaurant. But what now…?”


Don’t plant it until you have run through every scenario with someone – and that, perhaps, should be your consultant…

A lot of time, money and goodwill is often used up after an initial “great idea” rolls into frantic planning, the calling in of favours and then action, which often turns out to be misguided and detrimental to future developments.

It’s often better to sleep on an idea and then present it to someone who has no emotional or professional attachment to either the plan, or the person behind it.
