How to Make Use of Free Online Golf Tips Effectively

I am sure you have information on availability of free tips for golf on internet but here are some thoughts on the effectiveness of knowing the tips alone. Golf is a physical activity and of course what goes on outside is basically with the help of brain because it controls our thoughts, memory, physical activity and almost everything we do.

You may memorize a large number of techniques or tips available freely online with a desire to play golf effectively but memorizing them alone cannot serve the purpose. It is the practice that makes man perfect and it is no less true in this case as well. Whatever the tip you may find on internet, you must try to incorporate it in your technique and experiment for yourself to find its results. If you practice a technique, it will last longer and with sufficient practice, it will become your natural way of playing.

Amount of information available on internet is huge but you can assimilate it slowly, say few tips per week. Some tips are not for everyone and you may find ones that are not appropriate to you; you will know such ones when you apply to your game by practicing. You will find that experimenting is the best way to improve any aspect of life but you must take precautions to avoid any injury or accident. Keep company while practicing because you can assist each other to follow the instructions as per online tips.

Staying fit is important but you must consult your physician, especially if you are old, before strictly following a routine that is prescribed online for golf. You must know that there is no overlooking authority on the internet; hence we cannot trust all the information that is available online. But, it definitely has changed the way we live and it has put more power, say free online golf tips, with us which can be tapped constructively with right guidance.

My Favorite Restaurants in Manchester

The north west of England has some great hospitality services and has some fantastic places to wine and dine. I have been fortunate enough to travel around the North of England a few times in my life and I have stopped in at a number of different places. However there are only a few eateries that have really stuck in my mind as being restaurant dining experiences that you have to experience.

Manchester Restaurants have a certain special place in my heart. The city of Manchester is one of the busiest cities in the world and there are a lot of people that need some thing to eat. Therefore there are restaurants, bars and other hospitality services aplenty so whatever takes your fancy you will be able to find it in Manchester.

Three of my favourite restaurants in Manchester include:

Stresa is part of the Ramada hotel that can be found in the Salford Quays area. The restaurant has a contemporary feel with light and comfortable surroundings. I remember visiting this restaurant when I was on a business trip in the area. I had arranged the business dinner to meet with a marketing consultant and the impression the restaurant gave was great and then the food arrived. My marketing friend had said that marketing this place to the public would be easy, as we had both been sold by our starters and the selection of fine wines. Stresa is an Italian restaurant that sources a lot of ingredients from the Lancashire area to make sure that the ingredients you get on your plate are fresh and tasty.

Having always been a fan of seafood and sushi I was delighted when I stepped into the New Samsi Manchester restaurant. It is a Japanese restaurant that has been featured on Channel 4 and has been called the best place for Japanese food in the North West. New Samsi is a restaurant that has to be experienced.

A restaurant called Rhubarb, situated in Didsbury, Manchester is another fine restaurant. Having been featured in both the Michelin and Hardens food guides for their contemporary and eclectic menu. The surprising thing about this restaurant is how small and how personal it is. The restaurant is managed and run by husband and wife team Mark & Lisa Ramsden which gives it that homely feel with excellent service.

London Hotels – Staff Training Secrets

Here’s a review of findings from a set of personal interviews conducted with leading London hoteliers:

Rocco Forte Collection (including Brown’s in London). Sir Rocco Forte’s hotels have high staff retention rates but there is “no magic answer” to achieving this. The emphasis is on training and providing clear and direct communication to people about what is expected of them. Rocco Forte Hotels also invest a lot of time and effort in creating an attractive working environment.

Intercontinental Hotels Group. This company has a creative approach to training its staff. For example they use “Learning Maps” to help staff empathise with customers by walking through the hotel from the customer’s perspective. Because staff need to follow the tone and style of each brand, training is brand-driven – it is quite different for Holiday Inn as compared to Intercontinental for example. The company also runs an “Employee Room Benefit Programme” to let staff use any of their hotels worldwide at cheap rates.

Claridge’s (Maybourne Hotel Group). At this company’s ultra-deluxe hotels, they pride themselves on their ability to recognise you when you return to stay there and to offer you extremely personalised service. There is plenty of hard work behind this and the training is usually driven by mystery shopping feedback. They use their most experienced team members as “role models” to act as mentors for new hires.

The Lanesborough. This is an exclusive, ultra-luxurious hotel near Hyde Park with a managing director who is one of the most respected hoteliers in London. He passionately believes in leading by example and has a pragmatic approach to staff training: learning on the job is reinforced by regular meetings in which new ideas are encouraged.

Red Carnation Hotel Collection. All of this group’s hotels are currently at or near the very pinnacle of the London hotel rankings on TripAdvisor. Comments from previous guests highlight the friendly staff and the service philosophy based on “tiny noticeable touches”. The Group’s CEO believes in recruiting people who have lovely personalities who are then given continuous professional training.The management team is stable and this also helps to provide a very solid example to staff.

Malmaison (a 4 star chain of boutique hotels). At Malmaison they like to emphasise a sense of fun in everything they do. As the CEO himself puts it: “If it’s not fun we’ll make it fun!” This results in a company culture where staff are given ways to find enjoyment and fun in their day to day jobs. The company also puts an emphasis on product-based training by partnering with its suppliers: this is quite an unusual approach but reflected in the service that guests receive in Malmaison’s London hotel.

One Aldwych (iconic 5 star hotel). The legendary founder of One Aldwych, Mr Campbell-Gray, told London Hotels Insight that his core belief in managing hotels is: “love your staff”. He wants all One Aldwych staff to provide great service in a natural way “from the heart” and they ban the use of “service scripts” which are sometimes used at other hotels. The hotel has a down-to-earth service style which leads to it being “a snob-free zone” as the management put it.

Hilton. Hilton is famous for being consistent wherever you are in the world and a large part of this is down to its online “Hilton University”. This is the company’s global training resource centre and it emphasises the shared Hilton values, wherever in the world you happen to be working. Do check out the review of the best Hiltons in London at London Hotels Insight.

You’re bound to enjoy staying in one of the above top London hotels even more, now that you know a bit more about the staff who work in them.
