Vision Hosts the 2018 Spring Leadership Conference

Vision’s general managers, sales leaders and home office team were recently welcomed to the 2018 Spring Leadership Conference held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Chattanooga/Downtown. Over 100 associates from six states joined to celebrate Vision’s successes while gaining insight and inspiration for the remainder of this year.

To kick off the Mission Possible themed event, the team exemplified Vision’s core value of Community by assembling 150 homeless care kits. The kits were then donated to the Chattanooga Community Kitchen, a local nonprofit organization that aids the hungry and homeless community, and consisted of hygienic products, healthy snacks and a backpack. This was the first of many activities on the agenda, which included the opening session from President and CEO Mitch Patel. Mitch's passion was contagious as he shared the successes of 2017, current industry trends and the direction Vision is heading in the coming years. The team was also visited by motivational speaker Greg Blake, creator of PepWorks, whose encouraging message was well received.

The True Blue Family is the heart and soul of the company, and in appreciation, Vision honored those who consistently exceed expectations and provide outstanding service. Congratulations to each associate and hotel recognized for their dedication to being the best, most respected hotel company in America.
