What a cracker we have for you this week. What does it take to be an HR leader in an iconic hotel and restaurant?

Well, we chatted to Sarah Powell, HR Director at Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons ( to find out. Look out for another mispronunciation from Phil.

We get through loads including:-

  • Reopening
  • Admin days
  • Studying languages
  • Teaching English in the Indian ocean
  • The careers book
  • The Hilton graduate programme
  • Plan v no plan
  • Housekeeping
  • The move into HR
  • Bad interviews
  • Opening the Soho Farmhouse
  • Working in a pub
  • Le Manoir
  • Raymond Blanc
  • The garden
  • HR’s Role
  • Richard Osmond
  • The IOH
  • Hospitality Minister
  • Hospitality - the career of choice
  • Attitude is everything

And of course Sarah's superb journey so far. Sarah talks with great knowledge and passion around HR and hospitality throughout our chat and I love the fact that she has built a career around seeing where the opportunity is.
