As a speaker, [and a huge "Thanks" to all who saw fit to invite me back],I can tell you that Edmonton goes out of their way to make speakers feel appreciated. It starts with the initial invitation to submit proposals, continues throughout the entire process, and culminates with the large attendance in a lovely venue. Most important to me is all you wonderful folks who come up to me throughout the entire conference to share your thoughts and questions, your exciting new finds, and to just say "Thanks"!! It certainly makes the long long hours, that turn into months, of working on the presentations ... all worthwhile. "Thanks" right back at you!! I LOVE the Edmonton conference, always have, always will.
Now, once laundry is done and I get some sleep
Oh yeah, I also have to add that it was SUCH a pleasure to not be surrounded by 4 freakin' feet of snow for a few days! I'm so ready to golf and garden.
