Connecting The Dots: What Does All The Disruption Mean From A Strategic View
The year of 2017 is like no other we have seen in decades. From disruption of technological forces that are changing the way we work and play to changes in Washington which will take time to understand its full impact, it is important to understand the context of what is taking place. The speed of change is a force that we will all wrestle with over the next decade.
As the economic environment and hotel structure continue to change at a rapid pace, it is important to understand the current outlook, economic concerns and forecasts that will dictate behavior in all business environments. The impacts of global political and economic instability still exist although the global economy is growing together for the first time in modern history.
Our world has become much more complex with a variety of issues from, cyber security, meetings advocacy, behavioral changes and Health & Wellness leading the charge.
