Here’s something a couple friends brought to my attention.
Isn’t this awesome, in the truest sense of the word? I had the good fortune to attend the kick off for the Compassionate metro Atlanta campaign. Beautiful venue, at the jimmy carter center off Freedom Parkway.
Check-in was right at the inner glass doors of the vestibule. We were early and there was already a sense of excitement in the air. I stood in line maybe 10 minutes. I was one of the lucky ones whose registration card was identified and assigned to me. I did my little trick of putting this name badge in a knot so that when i sit at tables, people can still see my name.
We got a sheaf of papers at the door and were encouraged to find a table at which you didn’t know anyone. Perversely, I pursuaded my friends to sit with me, although a guy I didn’t know came to sit at our table and did contribute to the discussion.
Because that’s what we were there for–to start a conversation.
