3 tips to the Honolulu Coffee Shop in Wailea, Honolulu

On our way to the beach today, we stopped by the Honolulu Coffee Shop in Wailea – and what a bunch of miserable staff. Here is three tips so you can be better -and its FREE:

1. Make good coffee

2. Put down all the signs about what you don’t want the customers to do. The only sign we didn’t find was “We don’t want customers to come inside”. Yeah, that would have been too stupid, right?!

3. Smile. It doesnt cost you a cent.


Nå er den her! Boken alle snakker om!

Vel, det stemmer kanskje ikke helt. Men endelig har vi fått en fagbok om kommunikasjon på norsk for studenter og folk som jobber med kommunikasjon, PR og omdømme. Det er bra! Forfatteren heter Øystein Bonvik og han har fått med seg Peggy Simcic Brønn som nok har hatt flere hender på rattet. De har hatt en ambisjon om å lage en håndbok og oppslagsverk som kan gi virksomhetsrepresentanter både skriveglede og inspirasjon til å skrive godt. Nice 🙂

Boken er spekket med konkrete råd og eksempler, og et knippe skribenter fra blant andre Telenor, Helsedirektoratet, SpareBank 1 og Samferdselsdepartementet deler noen av sine erfaringer. Jeg har skrevet om et case om digital kommunikasjon. Legger ut tekstene mine her etterhvert.
Så hva venter du på?! Løp og kjøp! (bare så det er sagt: jeg har ikke noen økonomiske interesser i dette – men jeg håper og tror at boken kan bidra til skriveglede og inspirasjon). 

A song in a TV ad can easily hit the charts: Fyfe Dangerfield’s “She’s Always A Woman” was used in a new John Lewis TV Ad – Now it’s a UK Top 40 Single

I’m working on my presentation for the Nordic Investor Relations Conference in Stockholm next week. I’m going to talk about how social media can be used in investor relations. I would love to hear what you think about the subject :)

If you can’t view the pdf. Click here.

Thoughts so far on what to talk about:

  • Social media from the point of view of IR 
  • Cases: DnB NOR, BP and SpareBank 1
  • How should listed companies behave in relation to social media? 
  • How should they monitor blogs, twitter, etc.? 
  • How do investors and analysts use social media and other digital channels? 
I would love to hear what you think are the most important subjects, cases and stories. Thanx 🙂

120 persons are attending the conference on 17th of June 2010. Will I see you there?

I’ve got mail! What should I do?

Yesterday I wrote an e-mail to the manager of Best Western Hotel City in Milan about beeing treated badly by unhelpful staff. Here is the blog post

Today the manager replied. Here is his answer:

Dear Mr. Brosstad, 
I apologize for the inconvenience and for treatmen you had from receptionist. He is new in our hotel but, of course, it is not a normal attitude to treat guests in this way. This attitude does not respect the think of our hotel. 
I thank you very much for your advise so we can always ameliorate our services and our quality. 
I want to excuse very much again and I would like to offer you a week-end for two persons, as  my  personal guests in our hotel or a discount of 50% on the price you paid during your staying. 
Waiting for your comments, will you agree our best regards.
Best Western Hotel City

So, what should i do?

Best Western Hotel City in Milan: – I’m not a bell boy. Don’t you understand that?! Do it yourself!


Isn’t it like this

You should be proud of where you work and who you work for. If you love what you do, you treat your customer well. If you hate what you do, you will hate your customers – simple as that. So if you have a bad day, you should not take it out on your customers. I wonder what the owner of Best Western Hotel City in Milan thinks about this subject?! 

I had planned to post a nice review about Best Western Hotel City. The rooms are clean and the location is okay. But I have changed my mind after meeting mr bad-mood-guy in the reception. . He should not be facing customers but work behind closed doors where he can ruin his own day. 

This is the story:

What can you expect from hotel staff? Nothing apperently if you stay in Best Western Hotel City.

As eveyone else we have to store our luggage after checking out. City hotels store room is a tiny under stairs cupboard. You can’t stand up in there, you have to crawl to get to the bags and suitcases. But don’t expect the staff to do anything.

The receptionist asked me to crouch to get to our bags because he told me that he was not a bell boy. If i needed that kind of help we should stay at a five star hotel. Best Western Hotel City is a three star hotel. – Do you understand that, he asked me.

I really hope they help people that are less able than me.

I think the other receptionist was a bit embarrassed that this bold semi aggressive guy said those things to me because he came after me to wish me a nice trip back home. Too late.

I’m not staying at this hotel again. I have written to Tripadvisor to stop or change my review!
