I’ll admit it. I am not a fan of trade shows. I do not pack early, I do not get all excited, nor do I count down the days.
However. Even me, being the trade show skeptic that I am, had a great time at the national ASTD conference this year. We just went to market with our online leadership development solution about a year and a half ago, this was our first time being grown up, having a booth of our own and even a client dinner.
I also realized that because I work virtually and do not get to interact face to face with clients or colleagues, that this is a time to enjoy and cherish getting to know them more. So I thought I’d share a little bit of us with you, because at the end of the day our clients partner with us because of us.
A good looking booth and our great tech guy Scott Foster out of our Kansas City office holding down the fort.
Okay, so we (I mean I, I mean we) may have some hero worship even internally because Ken Blanchard is a guy who walks the talk, practices what he preaches, and whatever other cliche you need to use to understand that he is the walking definition of “authentic.”
Our clients agree.
The voices you hear on your voicemail or our phone conversations translate into some pretty tough women here at Blanchard Certified.
And the whole thing scales down to this:
And you know, at the end of the day, you can’t close down a trade show and successful relationship building without a Ken Blanchard dance party.
You haven’t gotten enough yet? Me either. Especially the part where Ken and Margie are dancing together.
This is the group of people I get to work with everyday and I am really proud of that. I am proud of who we are, what we are building, and the trust that our clients put in us. It is a special thing.
Thanks for letting us share!
