In early July 2020 (when we were once again allowed to go meet people) we were lucky enough to get some socially distanced time with Chris Penn, Co-Founder of Steel Hotels ( & Birch (, a few weeks before the doors were opened at Birch for the first time.

This chat is crammed full of good stuff as we took full advantage of Chris' natural humour, drive and humility covering off his epic journey to this point as well as topics such as battles, travelling, finding your feet, wobbles, leadership, travel, the 3 year itch, challenging impossible, mindset in extreme situations, voices in your head, having no regrets, logic and of course Birch which we believe is going to be something really rather special.

It's one of our most in depth chats to date and not to be missed.
