#083 – Hospitality Meets Harry Murray MBE – The Hospitality Legend

Where to begin on this weeks guest? I always had a dream to interview Harry Murray MBE, Chairman of Lucknam Park (https://www.lucknampark.co.uk) and today is a fulfilment of that dream.

We get through a lot as always including:-

  • Hospitality as show business
  • The industry of dreams
  • Having a vision
  • Salford tech
  • Breakfast for 2000 people
  • Respect
  • Leadership
  • Learning French quickly
  • Climbing the ranks in hotels
  • Becoming GM
  • Unexploded bombs
  • South Africa
  • Being made a chief
  • Moving to the English Riveira
  • Pressure points
  • Master Inn Holders
  • South Africa in the 90’s
  • Events for Royalty
  • Lucknam Park
  • The MBE

And so much more. There’s some wonderful snippets of advice throughout and I’m in awe of the work that Harry continues to do for this industry, he is an inspiration. The day after our chat he was off on a 200 mile bike ride for Hospitality Action.
