I hope you are all basking in the glow of a well-planned, well-executed and very successful conference.
While reflecting on all my learning from yesterday, I find myself celebrating two big take-aways.
First, there were few, if any, egos in the room. People were supportive and encouraging. I didn’t once feel as though, as a new comer, I was a threat to anyone’s business. That was very refreshing and says a lot about GPA-NJ.
Secondly, the conference identified for me the real reason I think I enjoy the process–it is indeed a way to use one’s talents to make the world a better place.
Thanks for a wonderful day of learning and networking. I look forward to seeing and working with all of you in the future.
