Join us for a Women in Lodging event on Thursday, November 17th.  One of the casualties of an overworked business environment is intellectual curiosity. With tighter budgets, shorter timelines, and fewer staff many of us are just trying to stay on top of our responsibilities so innovation and discovery seem like luxuries we can’t afford. But this is a dangerously short-sighted approach, because curiosity is one of the most valuable life skills we can develop. The minute we think we know it all is the minute we begin to become irrelevant. Join us for a compelling discussion on why we need curiosity in business, what’s getting in the way, and how to grow our curiosity muscle to grow personally and professionally.  Click here to view video from the last WIL event.
