This installment of The Axis Effect features Rob Paterson, a leader in global hospitality. Hailing from Australia and spending much of his career in London, Paterson has recently transitioned to the United States in the last 3-4 years. Just before this, he faced one of the greatest challenges seen by the hotel industry: the COVID-19 pandemic. But the challenges of the pandemic only fueled Paterson, using his multi-decade experience in hospitality to convert Best Western hotels across Great Britain into hospitals for the peak of the lockdown, fostering an unprecedented sense of community and helping to make the world a better place for those in need. Currently, Paterson works tirelessly to return the hospitality industry to its heights pre-pandemic and find clientele for people looking to rent out castles for events.  Paterson discusses the challenges and successes of turning hotels into hospitals, upcoming challenges he expects to face in his industry, the budding industry of renting out castles, and why the fight to bring the world of hospitality back to its former state is more important than ever.  To learn more, tune in to “Changing the World of Hospitality.”
