David Smith
CEO & Co-founder, Book Your Lifestyle, U.K
The beauty appointment booking platform Book Your Lifestyle was founded in January 2015 by David Smith and Chris Houry. They grew HostelBookers from 0-$100million in 10 years and as good as eradicated the financial burden of cancellations and no shows. Their thought-leading initiatives to change the technology and the process in how consumers find, compare and book online are still delivering benefits, customers and cash, for hosteliers today. Different industry, same premise; Book Your Lifestyle is the link between the busy preoccupied person who wants to look and feel good, but is short on time, and the service provider who has slots to fill but not a minute in the day to market them. Come and listen to David's experiences and his vision for Book Your Lifestyle.
