Keep Calm and Bl!nk!

Whew! Another GMIC conference has come and gone and all that remains are the gentle impressions (little tiny footprints) left behind in our consciousness.

I would like to think that the 2013 Bl!nk presentations make up some of those footprints. If you don't know what Bl!nk herehere and perhaps here.

I would like to extend a special thank you to:

Julie A. Baylor, CHA
General Manager, DoubleTree by Hilton LAX

Julie reminds us that it is important (when implementing sustainability initiatives) to "Make it Personal, Make it Visible and Make it Possible" in her Bl!nk presentation called, "What's in it for me?"

Tahira Endean, CMP
Director, Creative and Production

In her presentation titled, "What roasts your onion? How we change the world one bite at a time", Tahira thoughtfully shared how food impacts her family and events through a pictorial display.

Michelle Sheldon, President
Eco Promotional Products Inc.

Cowgirl Michelle (she had a hat to prove it) used pictures, props and stories of near eco-promotional catastrophes and reminded us of the importance of education and leadership within the sustainability industry.

Judy Kucharuk (me)
Dedicated blackberry devotee and sufferer of instagram envy 
Social media freak and wearer of green meeting planner cape

I sang a song....yes, a song titled, "Les GMIC: I dream a dream of meeting green". A special thank you to Sarah Brockus from United Methodist Women and coincidentally, an opera singer, for singing along - appreciate it Sarah.

If you are interested in bringing Bl!nk to your next event....I could be persuaded to share :)

Until then......
