Another cheeky bonus for you this week as I got some time with Mark McCulloch, Founder of Supersonic Inc. ( and also the brains and energy behind Hospitality Rising (, the largest Hospitality recruitment campaign the world has ever seen.

As well as a little bit about Mark’s story, we touch on loads in this chat as Mark gives us an in depth update on where things are at with the campaign and how you can get involved.

We chat about:-

  • Scotland
  • Coming to hospitality late

  • Moving to Pret a Manger
  • Supersonic
  • The start of Hospitality rising
  • The cold hard facts
  • Changing mindset on costs

Marks ambition is incredible and I absolutely salute him for what he has achieved and what he has planned. It’s an exciting time for the campaign and I for one can’t wait to see what all the creatives come up with next.
