What’s Your Passion?

I love seeing visible signs of a customer- and employee-focused culture. My wife and I were on vacation in Mexico. The employees at the resort were amazing.

COVID Draws New Attention to Rooms Cost Optimization & Profitability

Cost-optimization has always been a central notion in revenue management. That being said, the pandemic brought renewed attention to the topic.

Building Bleisure With Outdoor Office Pods

Remote work is here to stay. Even if companies start to require teams to return to a central office following full population vaccination, the benefits of allowing for flexible work conditions are too good to ignore.
