testimonialIn late 2015 I attended your bnb course at Sydney Community College in Rozelle. The course was inspiring!

testimonial Thank you for your wonderful presentation at Macquarie Community College a week ago.
You gave plenty of inspiration and consideration to me.
I come to live in Australia in my 40th, so I don’t have a sustainable amount of money in my super for reliable and independent retire. Now I see that it is possible to make it happened.
Thank you very much again.
I wish you all the best!

testimonial We attended your BNB course on Saturday. We thank you for your valuable information conveyed on the day and thoroughly enjoyed listening to your experiences in the BNB industry.

We are enjoying reading and discussing your material content in the booklets and how we will apply it to our perceived model. If we have any questions down the track, hopefully we can discuss them with you if you are available.

testimonial The information was brilliant, so relevant.

testimonial I thought you might like to know that your ‘start your own B&B’ course I attended in Sydney back in late 2008 was a great start to a new life. We left Sydney in 2009 and went looking for a better place to live and after a lot of travelling chose Dover in Southern Tasmania to convert an old house into a bed and breakfast. We opened about four years ago and have just recently won the Tasmanian tourism awards, I mentioned you in our 12,500 word submission.

“The feedback we receive through online reviews and in our guest book suggests that guests appreciate this level of detail and personal service and recognition. To have someone to personally welcome them by name, ask them about their trip to the Far South of Tasmania, answer any questions about running a Bed&Breakfast, our vegetable garden or running a small farm; being a good host is our point of difference. Maybe this inspires like-minded people? I have a book titled ‘Starting and Running a B&B’ by Stewart Whyte who ran a course I attended in Sydney many years ago, I let guests borrow the book then send it back once they have finished with it: it’s in Victoria again as I write this and will be back one day to be loaned out again.”

I hope you don’t mind me loaning your book out and wonder if any of the guests that have borrowed the book have gone on to start their own B&B’s. Thank you once again for a well run course that answered my questions and helped me get going.
