The Grand Life book by my friend Patrick Griffin is a must, entertaining and informative read about the life of a luxury Australian hotel general manager and past president of the AHA.

Patrick received the Order of Australia for his services to the Australian hotel industry.

I met Patrick by chance when he was building a luxury hotel on the bank of the Mekong River near my home/office in Thailand. Afterwards, he moved to Perth where we used to catch up. Patrick Griffin now lives near the Sydney CBD and is an interesting guest speaker.

He’s such a charismatic, interesting person with so many interesting events to tell.
