What a fantastic session to open this year’s Conference! A huge thanks to both Dan Heath and Daniel Pink for sharing their insights with us. It was great to hear not only both of them speak but have them interact and discuss their ideas. Thank you to all the attendees who sent in questions for our speakers! Let us know how you liked this new session format. We’re always interested in what our attendees think as we look to push the PLUS Conference in new directions every year.
The Opening Reception was lovely, providing a wonderful end to the first day of our 2019 Conference. We love being able to provide an enjoyable atmosphere for you to mingle and connect with your peers in a more relaxed setting. And it seems like the Virtual Reality Game was a hit!
Tomorrow brings education sessions on a variety of pertinent issues from knowledgeable speakers, as well as a PLUS Foundation Luncheon with Former First Lady Laura Bush. Breakfast starts at 7:30 am, and there will be a barista making specialty coffee in the Connections Lounge for any and all attendees. See you tomorrow!
We’re excited to welcome you to the first day of the 2019 PLUS Conference! Registration is open from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm in the Ballroom Foyer today, with PLUS Staff ready to help you check in. Be sure to bring a government issued I.D. and your mailed nametag. Isn’t the Gaylord beautiful?
The main event for today is our Opening General session with best-selling business authors Dan Heath and Daniel Pink. With a dynamic interview format, our keynotes are ready to share their knowledge on the importance of timing and trajectory when it comes to your career. We’re giving away free copies of their latest books today only, so be sure to pick up your copies on your way into the session!
TechBytes are going on throughout the day in the Connections Lounge, which happens to be the perfect spot to start your conference networking off right. Connect with colleagues old and new, and stick around for demonstrations on the best productivity apps and how to tame an out-of-control inbox.
We’re looking forward to the Opening Reception this evening in the gorgeous Riverview Ballroom. After hearing from Dan Heath and Daniel Pink, there’s sure to be plenty to discuss with your peers! We’ve made special arrangements to have a Virtual Reality game at the Reception for all attendees to try between networking, food, and drink. We can’t wait to see you there!
The final day of the PLUS Conference has arrived all too soon. The LAMP meet-up yesterday brought together both the incoming and the current LAMP Cohorts. The current Cohort received their certificates of completion for the program and connected with the new Cohort coming in this year.
The past few days have brought fantastic education and networking opportunities with professionals from across the industry. Your conference experience isn’t over yet, however. Gloria Allred is giving her keynote address over breakfast this morning, and after her remarks there are two education sessions you can attend for any last CE/CLE credit.
Thank you to everyone who attended the conference this year. This event is about you, and we strive to make it the best experience possible. Keep an eye out for conference recap posts coming next week, and mark your calendars for next year’s conference—November 11-13, in National Harbor, Maryland. Thank you for an amazing conference and we hope to see you next year!
