Igniting Potential – No Challenge To Hard

Michelle’s first book tells the stories and challenges of seventeen industry leaders  in the Hospitality Industry from Australia and New Zealand. It is packed with insights and advice that make it compulsory reading whether you are a club industry leader, aspiring to be selected for managerial roles or are just starting out in the industry.

Michelle Pascoe says “I feel privileged to have worked with some amazing people and wanted to share their secrets of success. The contributors have generously shared both their successes and challenges. I would love to sit these people down with every new employee so they can share their wisdom. Unfortunately we can’t do that so this book is the next best thing. There’s been lots of doom and gloom in the industry recently and I wanted this book to be a good news story and a celebration of what is great about this industry.”

Igniting Potential will give readers insights into everything from achieving a work family balance to dealing with changing legislation and new technology. Every contributor also offers invaluable advice for “new comers” and talks about the changes they have seen in the Club Industry.
