Taking Over the World One Hotel at a Time: The Story of a Canadian Luxury Brand

    TORONTO, March 29 /CNW/ - Thanks to his patience and genius for staffing,
Issy Sharp's Four Seasons Hotels' has risen to the challenge of India's
largest city, Mumbai. The new Report on Business magazine explores how Sharp,
with no formal hotel training, started with a motor hotel on a seedy corner in
Toronto and built a luxury empire befitting of two of the wealthiest investors
in the world, the Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talal and Microsoft's Bill Gates.
    Also in the April issue, more dos and don'ts of operating on the
international stage:

    The Incredible Shrinking Ice Cream Company - Don't think the American
market is a pushover. Senior Editor John Daly reconstructs ice cream company
CoolBrands International's ill-fated incursion into the U.S. How did the
Serruya brothers and their team wreck CoolBrands and still get rich?

    Let's Be Just Like Frank - Except for the bad parts. How do you get back
at the man who fired you (twice)? If you're Fred Jaekel, one of Frank
Stronach's former executives, you dust yourself off and build Martinrea
International Inc., a company that's more Magna than Magna is. Now, amidst a
stalling sector, Martinrea is soaring.
