The Always Care Consulting Company

About The Always Care Consulting Company

​They’re the authors of “Spin the Bottle Service – Hospitality in the Age of AI” and its associated training program. Having spent three decades rising from basement-to-boardroom in a world-leading hotel brand, they use their experiences to change the way hotels look at staff training. They ask: in a world of social media, storytellers, and influencers, why do hotel companies think making staff follow robotic, repetitive scripts will make their workplace attractive? Their training uses storytelling to help people view guests with empathy and to use their own stories and experiences to truly personalise service. It makes jobs more meaningful, guest experiences more memorable and helps you turn your hotel into a destination of choice people love to return to. The book is available for order online and via leading bookstores around the world. Training is offered in-person or hybrid where they supply the materials, and a local facilitator runs the show. Through their partnership with NorthPoint International, they also offer affordable access to the world’s leading experts in hospitality safety, security, resilience, and crisis management

Benefits To Members

BCHA members receive a free 30-minute consultation by video call to learn more about their individual needs. They’re also happy to offer a 10% discount to BCHA members that engage them for in-person sessions of Spin the Bottle Service training. (See brochure).
