HSMAI/OHLA/HFTP Revenue Summit 2020

Are your money makers and managers working together to manage your finances effectively?  Does your sales team understand the difference between good and bad business and why a revenue manager placed limitations over certain dates or types of business? Does your accountant understand what it’s like to be under the pressure of a client’s demands and contractual obligations? Does your revenue manager clearly understand accounting procedures and protocols?
