Happy Birthday to our new Project Manager, Kathleen LaTorre, who recently turned 31. Kathleen wanted to do things a little differently this year to celebrate, and decided to organize a volunteer group at Food & Friends. Food & Friends provides nutritious meals for men, women and children facing HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Kudos to Kathleen for celebrating her birthday by giving back to her community!
I love antique furniture hunting and while looking for a table found this gem - a hotel room whistle that was used to signal a fire or emergency. Who else but a meeting planner would want one of these antique whistles?! I have GOT to find a use for this at the office without making everyone crazy! Any ideas?!
Wanna know my little secret? I’m often asked how I stay focused during the wedding seasons and all other events during that same season.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The fancy answer involves advanced booking, outsourcing & an early morning schedule.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The real secret, though, is an assistant with excellent time management skills. She seems to be the key to keeping everything running smoothly! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s your secret?
[Werbung] In meinem neuen Blogbeitrag geht es um digitales bezahlen. In meinem Wohnort hat ein Wirt gerade auf cashonly umgestellt... 🙄Unglaublich! Wir schreiben das Jahr 2020... Kurios dabei: von der Bestellung bis zur Rechnung läuft "alles" digital. Die KellnerInnen nutzen Tablets für die Bestellungen. Aber beim Abrechnen ist nur Bares Wahres... ⠀
Wenn ich mich auf Twitter umsehe, wie die Leute dort reagierten, als die Hotelgruppe #Prizeotel publik machte, dass auch sie auf digitales bezahlen umstellt, haben wir noch einen weiten Weg vor uns.⠀
Bei meinen Recherchen zum Artikel bin ich auf interessante Lösungen gestossen. In China haben Obdachlose mittlerweile keinen Klingelbecher mehr, sondern nutzen QR-Codes. Straßenmusiker in Großbritannien verwenden mobile Kartenlesegeräte und in Schweden sammeln die Kirchen, die Kollekte über Automaten (per EC, Kreditkarte etc.) ein. ⠀
Die Welt wird digitaler und viele Gäste und Kunden erwarten bargeldlose bezahlen aus unterschiedlichen Gründen. Viele entscheiden sich auch für oder gegen ein Hotel oder Restaurant aufgrund der Bezahlart. ⠀
In meinem neuen Blogbeitrag erfährst du einiges über digitales bezahlen und kannst dich für die erste Online-Veranstaltung der Paymentbranche #STUDIOONE von @bspayone anmelden. ➡️Link in der Bio. ⠀
Wie können deine Gäste bezahlen? ⠀
We are excited to be in Miami for our 2020 company meeting at The Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne. Our company meeting theme this year is: Camaraderie & Communication. We are thrilled to be celebrating another successful year with such a great team.
It takes a village!
OCMG is hard at work planning for @gnclivewell’s Conference taking place in June of 2020 in Las Vegas.
Planning an event for over 1,000 attendees takes time and attention to detail.
There are multiple vendor partners to coordinate and site visits are an absolute must.
We are very excited to be partnering once again with @gnclivewell to put on this annual event.
What do you have to do today?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My to-do list on Sundays is to spend time with mu loved with ones, spend time with God, map out my content for the next week & check-in on my client overviews!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If I'm being honest, with the way I work I'll probably have ten more things on my list before the end of the day. But the first four are always a priority! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you busy getting done?

So... how did everyone cope with their first full week back in the office after the festive break? Has anyone broken their New Year Resolutions yet? Who reached out for that leftover Christmas chocolate when you said you wouldn't?
We don't know about you, but we're glad it's Friday! It's been such a productive week. We've loved seeing how motivated everyone is. 2020 already looks set to be a great year!
Saturdays are meant for head scratchies☺️☺️ Included in each stay is an immersive tour of @woodstocksanctuary which means you may get the chance to give Dixie a head scratch or two — she doesn’t seem to mind that idea one bit😉 Each stay supports Dixie and all her rescued resident friends at Woodstock Sanctuary❤️ Link in bio for more info! #thegraybarn#whywoodstock
