    Show #111: Engagement at the Multi Award Winning Dorchester Collection

    in Business

    Special Guest: Eugenio Pirri – Vice President, People and Organisational Development, Dorchester Collection


    Just three years ago, luxury global hotel management company, Dorchester Collection, ran HR on a regional level. Each of the 10 hotels held their own individual HR functions which independently focused on people, guests and owners. Whilst working, this was inconsistent and measured in an arbitrary way.


    Enter Eugenio Pirri, with over 25 years’ experience in the hospitality industry and appointed as one of just 4 people on the executive committee in 2011, Eugenio centralised people and organisational development and introduced an evidence-based approach where guest and employee engagement are fully interlinked.


    This move has resulted in additional revenue from fully engaged guests, attrition savings in their millions and employee engagement in excess of 90%


    Eugenio is joining us today to share his impressive, and multi-award winning turnaround, and explain why a scientific approach to guest and employee is a must for modern businesses.

    "The Many Faces of Breast Cancer"

    in Christianity

    Join me today as we talk to Paulla Miller and Jan James in the 2nd part of our 4 part series on breast cancer.  Jan James is a breast cancer survivor and founder of the Provision Project, a non-profit organization with the mission to provide financial relief to women in active treatment for breast cancer. 


    Soon after Jan was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, she founded a private online breast cancer support group which now numbers almost 600 women in nine countries.  Through that support group, Jan and her leadership team have become intimately aware of the ways in which breast cancer can impact a woman's life, physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and financially.  The Provision Project wants to help women who face tough financial decisions as they are actively being treated for breast cancer. I know you will be inspired, educated, and moved as you hear about these courageous women, and the overcoming spirit they continue to express, and live out!

    Margaret De Wys: Healing in the Amazon Jungle

    in Spirituality

    Shattered by a sudden diagnosis of breast cancer, composer and Bard College music professor Margaret De Wys emerged from crippling fear to take an entirely new path in the Amazon jungle, a path that ultimately led to her dramatic healing.  In her new book Black Smoke: Healing and Ayahuasca Shamanism in the Amazon, Margaret explores her transformational journey, as she is propelled away from her family (to everyone's concern) and has an amazing encounter with Carlos, a charismatic Shuar shaman and master of medicina milenaria.


    Margaret's earlier book is Ecstatic Healing. She is a composer and sound installation artist whose musical works have premiered with dance groups and orchestras across the country.  Since her initial experience with ayahuasca, she has traveled extensively and worked closely with many traditional healers throughout the world.  She is currently working with Joao de Deus in Brazil, where they see more than 1200 people a day, and she takes groups to the Amazon to work with Carlos.
