Coming up on the HCH Podcast

Our new podcast is off to a flying start. On Tuesday, HCH Founder, James Varley, interviewed four special guests from the short-term rentals industry: Merilee Karr, Damian Sheridan, Bryan Leblang, and Jessica Gillingham.

Merilee is the CEO and Founder of UnderTheDoormat Group and the Chairperson of the Short-Term Accommodation Association. She discussed the prospect of pending legislation in the sector and offered some valuable tips for investors, hosts, and property managers.

Damian is the Founder of the Scale shows and The Book Direct Show. He spoke about the importance of creating a direct booking platform in order to ensure you have full control over your properties and a sustainable route to future income and growth.

Bryan is the Co-Founder of both RentalWise and LuxGive. He explained what a property management system (PMS) is and how it can help to automate and supercharge your short-term rentals business.

Jessica is the Founder and CEO of Abode Worldwide – a global public relations agency which specialises in the vacation rentals industry. Jessica discussed PR in the sector and what we can all do to promote the many positive stories emanating from the industry in relation to people, business development, and the wider economy.

The first two episodes – featuring Merilee and Damian – will be available for download on Friday. The episodes featuring Bryan and Jessica will be published over the next couple of weeks. We have more recording planned with a host of prominent people in the short-term rentals industry. Keep an eye on our website and social channels for more details.
