Labor Day has come and gone. Summer is officially over and my white clothes are packed away to prove it. With the reality that fall is really here, comes a travel schedule that rivals my days as a consultant. To keep myself sane, and to make sure my family, my team…and frankly my self all know where I am supposed to be at any given time, I created a travel calendar outlining my escapades. Gosh, if I don’t see you somewhere in person over the next couple of months it would be a miracle. With the hopes that I WILL see you, I’d like to share some of the exciting things I have on the horizon:
My first stop is the Crowdsourcing Summit, hosted by massolutions September 18th and 19th in NYC, where I’ll be facilitating a panel. If you would like to attend, I’ve been told I can offer you a deal that is hard to beat…the first 20 people to email
email@example.com will receive a complimentary 1-day or 2-day event pass. In preparation for the event, I was
interviewed on crowdsourcing and how it relates to outsourcing. I hope you enjoy reading it! It is such a fun topic and still has so much room for exploration and growth.
Then I’m off to our
Silicon Valley Symposium on September 25th where we have an absolutely incredible line-up of buy-side executives speaking at this one-day event.
Before SIG’s next big event, Sarah Holliman and I are attending the Inc. 500/5000 Conference in Washington D.C., where they will be recognizing the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America. We are
honored to be on this year’s list!
Directly from D.C., I’ll be meeting ALL of you (hopefully!) in Fort Worth at our upcoming
SIG Global Leadership Summit taking place October 15th-17th.
Then it’s on to Ponte Vedra, Florida where I have the opportunity to speak at the Beeline “Be Inspired” event October 22nd and 23rd.
And from there, I’m off to Toronto for another
SIG Symposium on October 24th, after which I’ll stay over for the Telus Supplier Diversity Day.
Then it’s back to Texas, this time to speak at the Zycus annual event October 27th-29th in San Antonio.
After heading home for the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m off one last time in 2013 to Columbus for a SIG Regional Roundtable on December 4th, followed by a presentation at an ISM area meeting on December 5th.
My children have dubbed this the “Where's Waldo” fall, since they must look at a calendar on any given day to know where I am and whether it is too early or late to call. And while my head is spinning thinking of the amount of travel I’ll be doing, I’m so excited about the different locations, topics and opportunities that this schedule presents. If your calendar this fall doesn’t keep you as far from home as mine does, I hope we have the opportunity to meet or reconnect. In the meantime, enjoy the great content in this newsletter!
