Keep Swimmin'

Posted by Roberta Szymanski on Thu, Apr 19, 2018 @ 16:04 PM

My work anniversary was on February 1st.  It’s hard to believe that I have been working with Signature Worldwide for 22 years! I love to see people’s reactions when I tell them that I have been with the company that long; I always wonder what they are thinking, but won’t say, especially the younger folks.  When I first started with the company, we were a very small, home based company with a few dozen employees. Needless to say, in the past 22 years, I have seen change; some changes that were minor and some that were significant, but somehow, I managed to survive them all.

How to highlight your strategic differential in a highly competitive market?

Posted by Daniel Spinelli on Mon, Apr 09, 2018 @ 17:04 PM

"To be successful in the market, you must deliver a product or service that is unique, attractive, and of very high value to your target customers. This strategy needs to be difficult - if not impossible - for the competition to copy. You must know how to execute it with perfection”. (Spence, 2017)

Reputation at Risk

It’s a normal Friday night: Occupancy is high, the lobby bar is buzzing, and, in the ballroom, a party is just getting started. A deejay has set up his sound system at one end of the room, the F&B manager set up a portable bar at the other, and servers have started circulating among the guests with platters of appetizers.

Do Your Service Standards Instantly Reduce Your Customers to a Number?

Posted by Dave Hamilton on Wed, Jan 10, 2018 @ 17:01 PM

number-blocks-sml.jpgI’m all about reducing the number of clicks to access information electronically – that’s why I choose “e” for bank balances, weather forecasts, sports updates and more.  However, as much as I might not want to admit it, nothing beats one-on-one service delivered sincerely, swiftly and with a smile.

The Luxury Buyer

Posted by Amber Fox on Wed, Oct 18, 2017 @ 19:10 PM

I love to travel.  It’s surprising since I travel extensively for work, that I also chose it as my hobby for leisure.  However, because I still work, I have limited time to vacation.  This means that when I plan a trip, it is going to be a special one.  In the past 10 years, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Patagonia, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, France, Italy again, Peru, Croatia, The Azores, Costa Rica, Nova Scotia, and of course Italy again.  I’ve also managed to fit in some great places in the US in between all those international flights!

Mode of Transportation

For most of us, the thought of sitting in a classroom listening to an instructor regurgitate facts or read straight from a book gives us serious high school flashbacks.   Bueller…Bueller, anyone?
