“Wildfires. Tons of them... all over Sonoma County... I think we are going to have to cancel (the conference - Talent Development Think Tank).” Andy said in November... with far less panic than I would have.
In the next couple of weeks, I watched him and Bennett calmly cancel and postpone their high-end talent development and HR conference they had been planning all year, that had been highlighted as one of the top entrepreneurship events to attend in 2019 in Entrepreneur Mag and Forbes, and that I was literally already packing for!
I was going to be the social media strategist for the entire week’s event.
I was in London with Andy at Chris Ducker’s Youpreneur.com conference (another one of my favorites) a few weeks later and Andy was stepping away quietly from our group to make phone calls to re-arrange the new iteration of the event, again without drama, and again with this intense sense of positivity and calm.
I just watch this guy with admiration. To say I was impressed would be an understatement.
Fast forward a few more months to the event. (They postponed from November to January) and I can honestly say it’s one of the most well-done events I’ve ever been to, let alone worked with, and I was like.... how is this possible?
You'll find out how Andy and Bennett got through wildfires, evacuations, illness, and a number of other catastrophic happenings to pull off one of the nicest events I’ve ever been to.
Here is a link to a well-written outline and explanation of how Andy and Bennett worked together to create this event:
