Why HospitalityEducators.com is different

The academic and corporate hospitality educators on this site are professionals committed to sharing knowledge and best practices that blend real world experienceand the latest in educational approaches. 

Proven strategies and tactics to help your hospitality business 

  Kathleen Hogan named President and CEO of  HospitalityEducators.com  


 Kathleen Hogan, MBA CHO  assumed the role and title of CEO of HospitalityEducators.com.  


“HospitalityEducators.com has evolved from our original services as a membership site to one that provides a broad range of educational services and specific solutions for hotels,” says Hogan. “Almost 80% of the hotels in the US are under 150 rooms. While many of them are branded, an affiliation alone may not be enough for a small business owner to achieve the level of success they are seeking.  In the past six years, we have been repeatedly asked to offer recommendations on ways to improve profitability, to increase market share, to improve guest service or to offer personalized training assistance. The site offers valuable information, but the demand for personalized services has determined our need to expand and vary our delivery of knowledge and expertise.”


To meet those and other needs, HospitalityEducators.com is finalizing partnerships with several other entities to deliver an assortment of measurable results. These include:

  1.   Industry specific, “how to” videos for all levels in hotels

  2.    Online training for new managers and supervisors.

  3.   Regional workshops on soft skills development, sales and marketing, hospitality management and     human resources

  4.    Collaborative ventures and certificate programs with a select number of colleges and universities.

  5.     eBook resources, with an emphasis on hospitality and hotel management.      

  6.     A MasterMind series that identifies hot topics and stress areas, working with industry leaders in providing proven options and answers

Kathleen Hogan has a background in management, banking and finance.  With years of professional experience in business and an MBA in Human Resources Management, she has expanded her scope to include the hospitality industry over the last 20 years. 


She is Co-founder of HospitalityEducators.com, a consortium of successful corporate and academic professionals that delivers focused training and counsel in solving specific challenges facing hospitality.  

She has experience successfully launching entrepreneurial businesses in several different industries and her banking experience ranges from small-town savings to prime mortgage lending institutions in loan origination, processing, and desktop-underwriting.
