How to Deliver Extraordinary
Join the Audience
In these highly competitive business times, ordinary guest service is not good enough. To ensure guests
return, use more of the facilities, and recommend your hotel to other people; your service must have that
little extra. All staff need to deliver Extraordinary Guest Experiences.
First class facilities, excellent rooms, bathrooms, food, and everything about your “product” will not create
This only represents 35% of a guest’s assessment of your hotel. The other 65% is based on the interactions
they have, and the service they receive from your staff.
It takes more
This programme explains a lot about how each of us reacts and it demonstrates effective ways to deal with
both our internal and external “guests”.
There’s nothing complicated here, only a few simple but effective ideas that you can add to what you’re
When all hotel staff use a few new skills when dealing with guests, they will find that the hotel as a whole
has a new energy and warmth that is clearly observable as being different from other hotels.

Learning Session Outline
How to give guests what they really want
This session develops human level responses.

guest responses and why they happen

We will analyse our thoughts and feelings about the behaviour of other people
How to handle problems and deal with difficult situations
Extraordinary guest experience is highly dependent on your ability to handle problems and difficulties. This
session will introduce skills to defuse difficult situations.
How to create a positive experience, ensure guests return and tell other people.
Guests will return and tell other people if they feel better after an interaction with you than they did before.
This session develops the skills required to make this happen.
