H&C Collective BLOG


Summer is upon us and although often for the South Florida residents that means dealing with constant humidity and unpredictable weather, it is also a time to hit the "pause" button in our constant race of life & work. Some may be planning vacations soon, some are already somewhere and as for our family, we are heading to Colorado for a little break soon.

As I write this, I stare at the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge with its surrounding nature. One of the last events to close out our 2018/2019 event season is taking place here in the beautiful Washington state. And it is this nature that makes you stop for a second and appreciate all the new connections that have been made this past year, old friends that we had a chance to reconvene relationships with and new things that are up ahead.
When I embarked on this journey to create H&C Collective, the goal was simple yet complex: to deliver thoughtful Hospitality solutions to event related problems for our clients & industry peers. As we grow and evolve, we will offer you more event resources, better service and you will get a chance to meet new team members and learn of their talents. But one unifying message that will always stand behind every interaction with H&C Co is: What can we do for YOU?

I can't help but quote Danny Meyer, a restaurateur and a Hospitality icon, here:

“In the end, what’s most meaningful is creating positive, uplifting outcomes for human experiences and human relationships.
Business, like life, is all about how you make people feel.
It’s that simple, and it’s that hard.”
As we continue our journey and step into the new season, we will keep your HOSPITALITY spirit up in this newsletter with new tips, projects and offers. But ultimately, please remember, the newsletter is not about us, it’s about YOU and what we can do for you. Hospitality is a universal tool that can benefit not only your business, but your day to day life. Take a moment to pause and ponder on how you can give Hospitality to people around you.
