Chris Daly is happy to work barefoot, but he does not recommend baring your hotel’s soul during a time of crisis. With a family history in hospitality and a secret life as a music critic, Chris has handled more disasters, crises, murders, and fires than a season of Law and Order. Chris gives Susan some pointers about how hospitality businesses can handle sticky situations and what to include in a hotel’s crisis communications plan.

As a bonus, enjoy some of the musical delights referenced in this episode!
