Ambassadorship Is The Tech-Driven Authentically Local | By Larry Mogelonsky

As travel returns following vaccine-driven customer confidence, it’s important that hotels align their brand visions for the decade before we’re all too deep in the weeds of servicing onsite guests. One trend throughout the 2010s was the drive for delivering a ‘locally authentic’ experience and this will definitely reemerge for the 2020s, but successful properties will be those that take it a full step further.

Back To The Office: ‘Yes Please,’ ‘No Thanks’ Or Somewhere In Between?

The world is opening up and we are well on our way to ‘the new normal’. One of the final restrictions to be lifted will be the opening of offices. Research from Public Health England points out that office spaces had more outbreaks of COVID-19 than any other workplace environment. So it is a good thing that the majority of companies have maintained strict rules about working from home as much as possible.

What’s Your Passion? | By Shep Hyken

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. They were upbeat, outgoing and willing to do anything to make their guests’ stay as perfect as it could be. Something I noticed right away was the customer-centric culture that was part of the atmosphere of the resort. You could feel that customer service was at the heart of what they were about.

The tomatoes are forming

This is one of our first tomatoes of the year. It's a roma and it's not much bigger than an olive, but it's a start! The storm on Wednesday night really battered the plants. Almost all of them were lying on the ground Thursday morning, but they weren't damaged. I've since pulled them back upright and tied them to their stakes as best I could. As they continue to grow that will get easier. It won't be long before I know if the calcium treatment worked to prevent blossom end rot. We had more rai...
