A great Experience Host is dedicated to creating meaningful human connections. They go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and recognized. They are warm and thoughtful, creating moments of connection with their guests, and making them feel special along the way. If the host creates a good connection, guests will often arrive at an experience as strangers, and leave as friends.
When submitting your experience, highlight the ways you will consider the details and ensure that guests feel safe, engaged, and connected throughout the experience. This can range from the little gestures, like offering sunscreen on a sunny day, to bigger things, like creating an inclusive space for your guests to connect.
Here are some questions to contemplate as you craft your experience idea:
- How are guest needs like dietary considerations, accessibility, or safety concerns taken care of?
- What might you do if there are unforeseen circumstances, like a change in weather?
- How will you help guests connect and interact with each other on your experience?
- How will you take into account the comfort levels of a wide spectrum of guests from many different cultures?
