Mark Dickinson

Founder - Done!

Mark is the consumate Human Capital Developer. He loves nothing more than to be in front of a group of people who are all striving to figure out their future. His unique approach to management in hospitality is what drives Done! Get inspired. Take another look at your management team and think different...

What gets measured gets done!

For over 30 years I spent my life in hospitality and special events and the one common thing that spoils great customer service is ego. Managers get in the way of the very thing that they are trying to achieve. They want the glory and in doing so they prevent others from succeeding. This lesson carries a lot of pain. The pain of failing. Not once, but multiple times. Observing failure crystallized my vision for a better future that is very different from the past. After all, Einstein said that doing the same thing over and expecting a different result is insanity. Done! is created with one over-riding thought: IMPROVE PEOPLE'S LIVES. Through Done! we welcome you to a world of improving the lives of those who live and work to make your dreams come true. - Mark

Roland Prince

Brand Image & Design

Whichever way you are going to look at it there's always an alternative. With over 25 years of experience in hospitality and retail branding & design Roland is sure to stimulate your thinking and inspire you to do things differently. Its not about getting things done; its about doing them better than anyone else does.

Read. Yes. You heard me right : Read !

You want that competitve advantage? Differentitating yourself in a crowded market is all about one thing. Its not about being good. Its not about having the most beautiful or biggest place. Its about how consistently you can serve customers and be at the very peak of their expectations; not yours. Focus all your energy and effort on making people FEEL outstanding, make them feel special, speak to them individually even though they are in a crowd, and you are approaching a winning formula. Implementing Done! in your business is all about your most important people: Your team. Making them awesome. We do that - Roland

Suzanne Blake

Head of Done! UAE

Yoga and business fit together. Yoga allows the mind to complete the body and soul. Investment, acquisition and exit strategy are not terms commonly associated with hospitality, yet at its core, that is what hospitality is all about. Doing business and doing it well. Doing it well demands fitness of the mind, fitness of your people and a spirit that seeks to ensure the well being of all. If your people are good, so are your customers. Therefore, business is good

All I want for you, is for you to be your best. Always

I love the smell of coffee. Freshly baked bread The touch of crisp starched linen sheets The imperceptible nod to perfection that is woven into every breath of a hotel or restaurants very fibre. I believe that you can feel a good place before you ever taste its food or enjoy its service. Its aura will speak to you long before you ever experience it. Done! is created to bring that excellence to every one of your customers, every single time they visit your place. Every person is an individual. Treat them as one. Their journey is the only thing that matters to them, and therefore to me. Make their journey memorable in a great way and they will grow your business. - Suzanne

Tim Cooke

Head of Done! Thailand and ASEAN

If you are looking for people, then this is the place to be. There are more people per square km here than anywhere else on earth. That therefore makes it the place of greatest opportunity. Based in Bangkok, the vibrant hub of ASEAN, perfectly positions us to serve customers all across the region. We are only a flight away; and there are tens of flights every day. Call us and we will serve you. Try us and see!

All those years count. Oh yes, they do!

I've been a hotel group CEO, head of a hospitality education facility, and opened, managed and operated more properties than memory recalls. The abiding lesson? It’s all about putting excellent systems in place, and then getting fantastic people on board to run those systems. In Asia we are spoiled. We have a natural advantage when it comes to service. Capitalizing on that is what makes Done! stand out. We inspire your people to dig deep and bring out incredible service, always.. - Tim

Dhirendra Bisht

Head of programming

Write a Java program to replace a given character in a String to other provided character, for example if you are asked to replace each blank in a String with % 20, similar to URL encoding done by the browser, so that Server can read all request parameters. For example if the input is "Java is Great" and asked to replace space with %20 then it should be "Jave/020ie/020Great". Hahaha. That's what we do all the time... or similar.

Our six point plan!

Point 1 - We serve you!
Point 2 - The programming team learns what you need.
Point 3 - We design it visually and program it.
Point 4 - We test it.
Point 5 - You use it.
Point 6 - You love it... and then you ask us for more, so back to point number 1....- Dhirendra

I AM AN ARTIST

Selling is an Art. It is not work. It is not difficult. It is possibly the most simple activity in the world. All it takes is one thing. Belief. When you believe, then everything works. Believe in yourself. Believe in your product. Believe that your customers really need this amazing solution (you really do!), then just talk to them about your product as though they are the most important person in the world, and tell them why they need it and how it will make their life better and easier, and how it will help them become more profitable. Sold. - Denise
