Just give me something to talk about

Wow! I recently attended the MPI Greater Edmonton Chapter Event Management Awards and was fortunate enough to share a table with three gentlemen from the Edmonton area. Each were specialists in a different field. One in insurance, one in marketing and strategic management and the other in sales motivation and training. Wow! What delightful dinner companions. Each brought a unique perspective within their chosen field.

As they asked, "what do you do?", I became very animated and excited as I described Green Event Planning. It was clear that I loved what I do. They were interested in the aspects of green events and impressed at the numbers which I was able to share, i.e. amount of waste generated, etc.

I returned home with a renewed sense of spirit and, quite possibly, a bounce in my step. If you believe in the Law of Attraction, that positive energy could be responsible for the call which I received yesterday wanting to hire me for a green event next month.

To David, Michael and Frank....thank you for sharing your table with us and thank you for reminding me why I do what I do!
