Everyone needs to occasionally step outside of the daily “grind” to regain a broader perspective. For us, that opportunity is our annual conference with our PRConsultants Group.
We just returned from two jam-packed days in Albuquerque with colleagues from across the U.S. brainstorming, sharing best practices and building new connections with one another. Colleagues shared their case studies, strategies and insights. We listened to excellent speakers, like Martin Waxman and Steve McKee, who challenged us to embrace change and rethink old assumptions.
For teamworks communication management, this annual conference gives us a chance to refresh our own business plans. We always come away with new ideas for telling our clients’ stories. But, the most inspiring aspect for us each year is the renewed appreciation of the benefits of collaboration and teamwork. We are blessed to have so many talented and experienced practitioners we call colleagues, and friends. Spending this time with them refreshes and refuels us to “Turn it Up” in the coming year.
Thank you PRConsultants Group for this annual “shot in the arm.” Already looking forward to next year’s conference in Houston!
