Congrats to Vivian Deuschl of The Ritz-Carlton for being awarded the Winthrop W. Grice Award for lifetime achievement public relations excellence at the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International’s (HSMAI) Adrian Awards earlier this month!
I met Vivian last October when she led the bloggers-only trip to China I took and had a blast bantering with her over the five days.
While Vivian’s not the reason my new daughter shares that name (my wife and I picked it out before I left for China), she didn’t do anything to sully the name either. (I’ve heard, however, that the same can’t be said for me and the name Zach.)
