Nicolas Béliard, GM of The Peninsula Paris, sits down with hosco.tv to talk about what it’s like to manage the opening of a 200-room, ‘exquisitely Parisian’ luxury hotel. From the ‘human adventure’ of hiring and training staff to the official handover of keys from the construction team, Béliard says what he loved most about the project was the pride that both parties felt in watching the hotel come to life in 2014. Having worked at nine different properties over the last 18 years, including four hotel openings, Béliard has climbed the ranks of hospitality patiently and humbly. His advice to young talents? Don’t think about the top, or you will be frustrated. Have pride and passion in your work, and enjoy what you do, and things will happen naturally. To hear him talk about the changes he’s observed in luxury hospitality since the start of his career, including his opinion on what guests want in luxury today, watch the video!
