Meetings mean money for hotels in 2015

Aaron Wolowiec

As such, cybersecurity at hotels will become increasingly important for events and meetings in 2015.”. In 2015, an increasing number of hotels will offer technological conveniences such as whiteboards, social media screens and mobile apps. A new year means new professional development opportunities.

2015 Year End

Jamie Notter

Here is 2015 by the numbers: Miles running: 119 (down 110). This has been a pretty incredible year, actually. Some of it was amazing and cool (releasing our second book , growing our new company by a LOT), and some of it was amazing and not-s0-cool (cancer diagnosis, radiation, dropping 40 pounds in 4 weeks). But either way it was amazing. I also had a daughter go off to college this fall, and another daughter move in with me pretty much full time.
