[Hey! I want to let you know about a tasting event at NatGeo on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Tickets are 20% off with my promo code BZK20.]
From his early start as the harried and neglected personal assistant to a typical L.A. casting agent, Fazio took what he learned there and moved into concierge work at New York City’s Intercontinental Hotel, where he was eventually able to parlay his services into a large and successful business of his own.
This is a great read, giving you insider tips, learning what other’s get when they throw tandrums, and an all-together “how to” when stepping in and out of a great hotel.
In Concierge Confidential, Fazio reveals the behind-the-scenes madness that goes into getting the rich and famous what they want, and shares some great insider knowledge on how to get access to the unattainable without making the concierge, waiters and other service people crazy.
A few of Fazio’s tips include:
- When and how much to palm in tips
- How to get a seat or ticket to the hottest thing in town
- How to avoid being labeled a rube the minute you walk through the door
- How you can become your favorite store or restaurant’s most beloved customer
- And much more
