Industry Friends, New and Old

You’re in for a treat this week! In this A-ha moment episode, we hear from ten industry friends at the 2022 Short Stay Summit about a moment when something clicked for them.

  • Damian Sheridan – Director, The Book Direct Show & Scale Rentals Show
  • Assaf Karmon – CEO & Co-founder, TurnoverBnB
  • James Brown – Operations Director, UnderTheDoormat
  • Bob Garner – Owner, Casal Dei Fichi

  • Simon Lehmann – CEO & Co-founder, AJL Atelier
  • Leo Walton – Co-founder, SUPERHOG
  • Jenn Boyles – Founder, Direct Booking Success
