We had the chance to catch Charlie MacGregor, CEO and founder of The Student Hotel for a quick chat before the end of the year and he told us about how he got into the industry and the origins of his very unique hotel concept with TSH. As travelling is about experiences, Charlie explained how a hybrid company that accommodates students, young professionals, leisure and business guests all at the same time offers exactly that, by creating co-working spaces and areas for people to meet and connect, adding locals to join the conversations too. Beyond that, we spoke about the new generation of corporate travellers and students, how the needs of the young generation have changed and the business model of TSH allows more work flexibility than traditional hotel companies. Lastly Charlie talked us through the importance of tech in hospitality and vice versa and preview what the future holds for TSH.
Enjoy the show!
