Convention 2012: Reaching Out & Convention Lip Dub Video

Yesterday was busy with check-in and Memento Mall, Riverton Tours, and an evening class, but today was the official start of Convention. And it started with this awesome video created by Stampin' Up! staff. This song was stuck in my head the rest of the day. I LOVE it!!

What an exciting first day! The keynote speaker, Jason Dorsey, was great! Jason works at the Center for Generational Kinetics and had some fascinating insights on fundamental differences between generations and tactics to use to reach out to new generations.

I also really enjoyed Emily Montoya's "I am reaching out" class. And it wasn't just because she used some quotes from me! (wink!) I was taking notes with the rest of the crowd and could relate to much of what she said. If you simply look at birthdays, I fall into "Generation Y", but I definitely relate more to Gen X and especially when it comes to technology, I was happy to get some advice on how to better communicate with some of my customers!

We attempted make and takes, but I failed miserably and gave up. Margo fared a little better!

We also enjoyed some great Demonstrator presentations in the "I am savvy" class led by Donna Griffith. My favorite project, created by Laura Mulligan was a set of notecards in a fabric envelope. I am not a fabric person, but I was inspired and just might do a class with a project like this!

Of course, the highlight of the day for me was Awards Night! More about about in my next post!
