What a treat I have for you this week as I managed to get some time with the incredible Robert Cook, CEO of Hostmore PLC (https://www.hostmoregroup.com/) and all round industry Titan.
Robert has such an epic career so far and is an inspiration to us all. He's a natural story teller throughout and my word he's done some very cool things.
We get through sooo much, including :-
Being born into the industry
Learning 5 star
Climbing the ranks
The first GM role
Malmaison - The First Stint
Ken McCulluch and David Coulthard
CEO at 36
If you’re good enough - you’re old enough
The Cookie Jar - Northumberland
Moving to Fridays
The opportunity to float
Adapting to the market
Being up for the challenge
How to become a CEO
Taking breakfast to Margaret Thatcher
Lord Rupert Whoopsie
And so much more. It's so wonderful to hear that even someone who has developed such an incredible and serious career, the over riding message throughout is that he has had a lot of fun along the way. A wonderful message for us all to remember.
