#132 – Hospitality Meets Sean Wheeler – The People & Culture Legend

There won’t be many people the UK hospitality scene who haven’t heard of today’s guest, and if you haven’t, then have I got a treat for you.

I chat to none other than award winning HR legend Sean Wheeler, now running his own consultancy.

Sean has had one hell of a career so far having worked with many recognisable brands. We chat through his epic journey and get through:-

  • Marlow
  • Avoiding Academia
  • Getting on a management training programme
  • Moving to Coffee shops
  • Miss Selfridge
  • TGI Friday’s
  • Operations to Training To Operations
  • Errors of judgment
  • Pubs
  • Innovation in recruiting
  • Malmaison & Hotel Du Vin
  • Dorchester Collection
  • Being brilliant at the basics
  • Blank canvasses
  • Starting with Values
  • Giving back
  • Hospitality Action

And so much more. Sean’s energy for hospitality is still there for all to see and there are more than a few lessons throughout our chat, another wonderful insight into career building in hospitality.
