Damon Lawrence started his career in hospitality as a front desk agent for the Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel in Washington DC, before working at Ritz-Carlton, IHG, and Dusit International. After working in these roles, Damon started his own hotel development group, Homage Hospitality, as well as Unflagged Academy, a mentorship platform for the next generation of hospitality leaders.
Damon believes the greatest barrier to entrepreneurship and hospitality is access to information, and that creating amazing hospitality experiences requires diverse perspectives. Today, he explains how he’s breaking down barriers and providing access to information to help others.

This episode is brought to you with support from Sojern. Finding and appealing to travelers online means getting to know them, and that's why first-party data - the information you have about your guests - is so important to providing hospitality today. I teamed up with Sojern to study how hoteliers are using this data to drive revenue and build stronger guest relationships, and you can see what we found in this research report: How Hotel Brands Are Using First-Party Data to Drive Revenue & Build Stronger.
