Marriott vs Hilton Hotels
I travel a lot for work, or rather I used to until Covid19 hit. My last work related trip was to Florida to a convention on Robotic Process Automation (RPA). I stayed in a beautiful Hilton Hotel near a marina with a great resturant and bar. I’ve been a long time Hilton Honors member and use the AMEX credit card a lot to gain points, status, and rewards. My Hilton Honors came in handy when my family and I were stranded overnight in Miami because flights were cancelled due to a nasty storm.
Back to Montreal
Q3 is over. It’s been over for a day already but it seems like it was a week ago. This has been one of the busiest Q3’s in my career as a Sales Engineer and I’m off to Montreal again. I’m visiting customers and turning some prospects into new customers. Q4 is going to be even crazier, but I enjoy this. The Sales life is strange when you think about it.
A Traveling Sales Engineer
Writers gonna write! February is shaping up to be a big traveling month for me. I was in Mountain View at the end of January for Sales Kick Off and then stayed for H2O World in San Francisco at the beginning of the month. Topping that off so far was a trip to Orlando for HIMSS last week. All incredible events but my traveling isn’t done yet! I plan to be all over the eastern seaboard in the coming week!
Presidential Election 2016
I was in France last week for my neice’s wedding. We had a great time and really enjoyed the French countryside. We got sample some delicious wine and food, danced, and met lots of great people. We talked and laughed but eventually all our casual conversations with the French turned toward our Presidential Election and Donald Trump. Needless to say, many French that I talked to are appalled by Donald Trump but some like his authoritative style and that bothers me.
Macau the Chinese Las Vegas
The last time I was in Macau, I stayed at my brother in-law’s place. Outside his balcony I watched the construction of what was to become billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s Venetian casino. It looked really cool and was massive in size compared to its neighbor, Sands. The Venetian boasts what it claims to be the world’s largest gaming space of 550,000 square feet (50,000 square meters), housing 3,400 slot machines – with room to expand to 6,000 – and more than 800 gambling tables.
