It is fantastic how our point-of-view changes based on our vantage point. When I worked in corporate, I thought consultants had it easy, no clock to punch and can send an invoice for all work done. I was usually looking at the perceived benefit the individual was gaining versus what they brought to the table, a wealth of experience and an outsider’s view at the fraction of the cost of another employee.

Where do you spend most of your time? Who suffers when you leave home early to get to work on time? Who is left out when you have to travel for work? Who ends up waiting because you are late as a result of work? For all of these questions, the answer is either work or family.

As a public relations practitioner who lives in Barbados, a country in which tourism is its primary industry, I am often questioned by my international colleagues at conferences about my tourism industry clients. By this, they predominantly mean hotels. Up to the time of my writing this blog we at PRMR Inc. have not had one hotel as a client and the reason for this became quite clear this week when I approached a senior executive from a West Coast Hotel about offering his company our services, his immediate response to me was that his company does not really do any marketing and public relations on the island since it targets overseas tourists to fill the hotel. My immediate response was what about your staff? He was dumbstruck.
