Have you heard of taking your act on the road? Well, that's what I've been doing lately with the help of my daughter, Debbie Marriott Harrison. Debbie is our Global Officer of Marriott Culture and Business Councils. A company's culture is not something you can build over night. My father started the company in 1927. He laid out some basic principles and lived by them. I've tried to do the same and whenever possible remind our associates about our values and how we do business.
So, Debbie started interviewing me at various company forums. We videotaped the last interview and the opening question from Debbie was, "Tell us how it all got started?" I gave my short answer for fear of putting everyone to sleep. Enjoy the clip.
I'm Bill Marriott and thanks for helping me keep Marriott on the move.
