No matter which way you skin it, we’re all in the people business. It is the key thing that lines up. I always look at those pieces of technology… they help you put things together… But you’re not trying to improve your relationship with your technology, you’re trying to improve your relationship with those that are around you. I think these are the things that will always be true.

They’re tried and they’re true. And I think that’s why, whether you’re in hospitality or in technology, it is always about trying to make those connections and building on those relationships.
