For 15 years I operated a virtual company, with project managers that worked from home, it had it's pros but also had it's cons. I felt we needed our own space - a home base where everyone feels welcome to come and go. A space that reflects our brand, showcases our services and products, but not a space that chains creative, responsible, project managers to a desk. My idea was to create a "touch down space", a place where we can have meetings, a place for mentoring young staff and interns, a place where everyone feels welcome to drop in for a visit. As Destination Consultants grows, I want to make sure our team has all the tools they need to do their job efficiently and effectively. Some people work better from home, some work better at an office - why not let them choose?
As a Destination Management Company, the location couldn't be better for us, right in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids inside the convention center's headquarter hotel, the Amway Grand Plaza, Curio Collection by Hilton. Not only is it convenient for event implementation, but we're just upstairs from the motor coach staging area. Perfect for managing group & VIP arrivals/departures. Well, that's my story, and I look forward to many new adventures at our new office and of course, feel free to stop in anytime!
