A Chat With Richard Vaughton

Our next speaker interview is with Richard Vaughton of Yes Consulting and Rentivo.

After years in exotic places including biomedical laboratories, Saudi Arabia, India and a career spanning many countries, Richard settled into the vacation rental industry where his experience led to many ventures and consultancies. From growing and nurturing microbes to growing and nurturing businesses, Richard loves the challenges and variety of business development.

Richard talks about many facets of the industry including the wide reach of revenue management, DMOs, niche channels and OTAs have done well (and badly).

We also speak about the excitement of selling ice-cream at 15 years old and crab fishing.

Richard Vaughton of @Rentivo talks to the @BookDirectShow about the vacation rental industry and the #bookdirect movement.
