Why hire a consultant?


Short Let Consulting's Ben's first first exposure to the industry was while employed in hospitality sector management positions, beginning with hotels and then with a global corporate booking agency, later with a serviced apartment operating company. In January 2011 Ben established Short Let Consulting Ltd with the aim of providing sourcing services for serviced apartment companies and, over time, the business has broadly evolved and now provides operational consultancy in two distinct sectors with a symbiotic business relationship: 

Hospitality (serviced apartments and apart hotel development) 

Global Mobility (global temporary housing booking services for corporate groups/individuals)

Since 2005 Ben has built close bonds with many of 'the great and good' in the industry from Relocation directors and Global temporary housing directors, Property funds and Investors, Multi-site property owners, Real Estate agents to HR Directors (Oil & Gas and Finance). 

During this time, Ben has continued to play a central part in both setting up and supporting serviced apartment companies in London and most recently in Russia while taking an active role in the design of an apartment hotel and with the development of a new brand strategy, for an expanding Russian serviced apartment company. 

Ben can share his experience of over 14 years and crucially he can demonstrate how to make money from running a serviced apartment business.
