Welcome to Marketing Monster Mashup, the official podcast of Leading Results!
Join host Matt Starnes for episode eight to hear Matt Allen, General Manager of Hyatt House in Charlotte, NC.
Matt Allen tells an incredible story about turning a horrible situation into something positive for his community. Charlotte, NC experienced riots during the week of September 20, 2016. The Hyatt House Center City Hotel had 30 windows shattered during the protests. Hotel manager Matt Allen turned to Facebook to seek help from local artists, asking if any would be willing to paint over the boarded-up windows until they could install new glass. The post went viral, and, within 24 hours, artists were painting over the drab plywood with supplies provided by The Charlotte Art League.
A crisis doesn’t have to derail your business permanently – it’s all about how you choose to roll up your sleeves and tackle the situation. We hope you enjoy Matt Allen's story and learn how to turn a bad situation into a positive experience of hope for the community.
