Wellness is having a significant impact on hospitality and travel sectors as well as the workplace. It is the must-have for any business offering. It is, says Girlahead, a vital element of culture and commitment for all companies to offer to employees. Anni Hood is a growing name in the wellness sector: Girlahead met her in Dubai a few years ago when she, Ms H not The G, was supporting Jumeirah’s Talise spas. She now has her own company, WELL Business Solutions. Watch Anni Hood talking at the MENA-region World Economic Forum a couple of years ago:
Vanessa Williams, above, is one of the most stylish hoteliers – she runs the sumptuous Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, a leader in the luxury sector in the entire USA, says Girlahead. Oh my goodness, style is not only knowing the part, or acting it as if you are up for an Oscar, but also looking the part (think Maggie Smith in The Lady in the Van). Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills suitably sets the theatre for today’s new-luxury consumers.
And luxury travellers today, and tomorrow, predicts Girlahead, do not even want to waste one valuable moment wondering about health safety. They automatically expect it. Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board has just announced it plans to become the first US destination to be Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™, thus assuring travellers and advisors of appropriate safety procedures. Already by the way, over 500 hotels, resorts and venues in 50 countries have achieved this verification.
