The annual SHRM Conference and Exposition is always an excellent time, and this year’s event in New Orleans did not disappoint! Mike, John, Brendan, and I had a fantastic time meeting prospects, visiting with clients & Astron friends, getting caught up on SHRM Learning System developments, and enjoying New Orleans hospitality & good food! Fresh beignets, muffulettas, and po’ boys – yum yum yum!
It was so much fun to reconnect in person with Cathy, Tim, Clara, Linda, Karen, Jake, Ruth, Brian, Corey, Jamie, Terri, Hugo, Carlos, Dan, Sandra, Elizabeth, Sharmila, Lucia, Amy, Dorothy, Juan Carlos, Tracy, Angela, and Rachel. Thank you for stopping by our booth! (I’m sure that I am forgetting to mention by name some clients and friends who visited us in booth #1143 – my apologies for that!)
The Tuesday evening show with Harry Connick, Jr. was amazing! I didn’t know he is such a versatile musical talent. The evening’s 90 minute performance flew by!
The only downside to the conference was the unexpected arrival of Tropical Storm Cindy on Tuesday! John’s umbrella fell victim to the high winds, and we got a bit wetter than we might have liked, but thankfully everyone’s flight home on Wednesday went smoothly. I hope that this is the last tropical storm / hurricane event to hit the Gulf Coast in 2017.
Mike, John, Brendan, and I look forward to seeing you in Chicago, June 17 – 20th, 2018. We’ll be in booth #1829! Mark your calendars and get ready to make your hotel reservations soon!
