Believe the W is now open Ritz is OK but old and a bit tired but good atrium restaurant / bar Notary is nice and good upgrades but kinda has the mid tier Marriott vibe and bathroom finishes Westin is very so so older rooms and was always super dusty I’d I had to pick it would be W as top choice

Le meridien is also a nice option!

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain?

Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

DEI hires don’t address the issue. We know they are powerless positioned designed to give the impression of ‘doing something’ rather than grooming and promoting the diversity under your own roof. There’s a problem when your clients are more progressive and demanding of change than you are, agencies.
