About the Author

Alec Le Sueur started a promising career in luxury hotels, with positions in London, St Tropez and Paris, until one fateful day he took the unusual career choice of leaving Europe to join the management team of the infamous Holiday Inn Lhasa. He spent five years in Tibet, the subject of his first book, The Hotel on the Roof of the World, before returning to his native island of Jersey. A further career change led Alec to swap VIP guests for lawyers and to acquire an MBA in law firm management. He gives frequent talks on his time in Tibet and is a regular contributor to Food & Wine magazine. He also writes articles on management and strategy for exciting law journals
