There are many good reasons for Team Evolve Marketing to prioritize travel. It’s a way to recognize our hard-working associates for a job well done, a tool for enhancing our in-house training, and a way for us to network with business leaders from across the world. Perhaps most importantly though, trips can be a life-changing experience that broaden our horizons and give us a fresh perspective.
For example, it’s easy to forget just how much space there is between some of the major cities in our country alone. On a map, Salt Lake City and Dallas, Texas may not look too far apart. However, when we visit D-Town for an Evolve Marketing conference we’re always impressed at how big an area the Southwest really is – and when we have the chance to see more of the world, it always influences us to think bigger as well.
Seeing how people make their way in different locales and climates leads us to think more creatively about our approach to living as well. The architecture, art, and music of a Seattle or NYC is different from what we have in Utah, at least in part because of geography and history. When we expose ourselves to different ways of doing things, we inspire innovation in every area of our lives.
Our trips are a function of our business, but we’re committed to being travelers because of the positive influence our journeys have on us. Follow Evolve Marketing on Twitter to see where we’re heading next.
