#166 – Hospitality Meets Stephen Lowy – The Lessons of a CEO

I can’t quite believe it took me as long as it did to reach out to todays guest, CEO of AES and The Residence Apartments, none other than Stephen Lowy.

Being a 3rd generation Hospitalitarian might lead you into believing that Stephen’s route was always mapped out for him but how wrong you would be. There are wonderful lessons all the way through this chat and we get across:-

  • Struggling at school
  • Finding hospitality
  • Finding out about Dyslexia
  • Salford University
  • Black Eyes
  • Travelling
  • Anthony Bourdain
  • Hostels
  • Umi
  • AES & The Residence Apartments
  • The Klopp Effect
  • The lessons of others
  • The Savoy Educational Trust

And so much more. Stephen handles his story with a wonderful grace and humility throughout and I am sure that there is something in here for everyone, whether starting out or already well on your path.
