Jonathan Humphries is in conversation with John Wagner, an inspiration in the hospitality industry.
He has built Cycas Hospitality, which is now one of the largest white label operators in Europe with franchises from Marriott, Hyatt and IHG. Cycas Hospitality has been listed as one of the Best Companies to Work For. His journey in Entrepreneurship started from when he was a child and he has wonderful experiences of entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship along the way. He truly embodies the entrepreneurship spirit and some of his learnings are absolutely invaluable for anybody who is looking to create, develop and innovate for the hospitality business and other businesses going forward. This is obviously what is needed more than ever coming out of one of the worst crises that we have witnessed seen in modern history.
An entrepreneur is an individual who creates a new business, bearing most of the risks and enjoying most of the rewards.
An intrapreneur is a self-motivated, proactive, and action-oriented people who takes the initiative to pursue an innovative product or service but does not carry all the risks since the organization absorbs his or her losses.
