About us

We come in a variety of flavors

Who we are

In a fast-paced world in which human connections are increasingly fleeting; Typsy believes that hospitality moments make the world a better place. We believe that it’s the hospitality we provide others that defines us.

That’s why we want to empower our members. By providing them with access to insider tips and knowledge they can skill up, serve the world better and make every hospitality moment exceptional.

To execute our vision, we have reimagined how hospitality skills are learned and shared. We’re online, we’re global, we’re a community, and we’ve got course content from the world’s best instructors that you can access anytime and anywhere.

If you want bite-sized, specific, and, dare we say it, fun tips and lessons in specialist hospitality skills why would you go anywhere else?

Where we are

Our members include some of the world's largest hotel and restaurant chains, hospitality learning institutions, and passionate individuals from across the globe. Ready to join the Typsy Tribe?
