I really want to do a whole recap about SheCon, but that'll have to wait until I can get some photos from some people (specifically the ones of us at karaoke that Nicole took!). For now, here's just a few highlights:
The opening keynote speaker was Guy Kawasaki. Heard of him? Yeah, he's fantastic. And we each got a copy of his book, Enchanted! Awesome.
They estimated around 700 people in attendance, I think...but ended up having only around 150. Not great for the presenters or the sponsors in the exhibit hall, but GREAT for those of us attending. We had opportunities to meet and chat with some of the speakers that we wouldn't have had otherwise. It also afforded us the ability to really connect on a much more personal level with the other attendees. I met some truly wonderful people and I intend to stay in touch and make these lasting relationships.
I was able to meet and have lunch with Amy, had drinks with an old friend Courtney from middle school (and now that we've grown up, he decided to fill me in on some of the things people, mostly the boys, said about me back then - not sure if I should be flattered or offended! Heh.), went to lunch with my friend Anita, and also got to meet and have dinner with one of Rachel's friends.
Our last night there, a big group of us decided to hit the karaoke bar. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have read some things about that night, namely the fact that Serena Williams showed up! With her entourage of friends and bodyguards. We had SUCH a great time and as I mentioned before, Nicole took some
We have a board meeting tonight and I'm getting a little tired of the typical skirt suits so I decided to mix them up a little. I really love the black, white and red color combination, so this outfit was a pretty obvious choice for me. The zebra belt was a last minute idea and I love it with the rest of these pieces!
