Partner and General Manager at Valley Engineering

Cultivating Emotional Intelligence

When you’re looking at hiring employees, are you considering intellectual intelligence or emotional intelligence?

Art of Brand Experience featuring Sarah Moore

Senior Vice President Marketing at MGM Resorts International

Art of Brand Experience

In fact, for those outside the hospitality sector, rarely would a city like Las Vegas come to mind. However, MGM Resorts International’s SVP of Marketing, Sarah Moore, has made it her personal mission during and post-COVID-era to create the kind of personal experiences that resonate with their resorts’ customers, ultimately turning them not only into raving fans — but avid returners.
