W.SHORT HOTEL GROUP
W.Short Hotel Group is home to some of Sydney’s most iconic hospitality brands including The Glenmore, The Australian Heritage Pub, Scubar, The Royal and The Seabreeze Hotel. Having reached a pivotal moment in the business partnership, the W.Short Hotel Group Managing Director Martin Short turned to BCS to help him develop a bold new strategy. Using the Strategic Planning program, 8 Steps to Perfect Business Strategy™, Martin was able to step back from managing the day-to-day of the business and focus on his passion for growth and development of new venues. By both developing the plan and following through until it was implemented, BCS has helped W.Short Hotel Group go from strength to strength in the last three years.
“It is the BCS system that has allowed me to bring the best of my skills and all the potentials that my leadership has to offer to the table. I know for certain now that embracing BCS’s tools, techniques, systems, strategic thinking and people management have allowed us to get to where we want to be in half the time.”
