My Future In Professional Ping Ponging

I am now thoroughly convinced:  ‘business vacation’ tops the oxymoron charts.  Better fitted to be called business-longest-days-you’ll-ever-work-trips are amazing opportunities to network, exchange ideas, and absorb the latest industry trends.  Business is a marathon, not a sprint; business conventions however, especially those in one of the fastest moving cities in the world, are full-fledged dashes from one event to the next (all in heels).  And although exhausted by the end, I absolutely love it!

The GAWDA Annual Convention in New York City was a fabulous success!  GAWDA President Lloyd Robinson and team put together an amazing event filled with enlightening speakers, entertaining networking events and enjoyable opportunities to explore the city’s best.  One of this year’s networking highlights was the Young Professionals event.  Concealed in an underground ping pong bar, GAWDA’s Young Professionals gathered to catch up, meet new friends, and play some surprisingly competitive pong (the new kind for most).  Needless to say, ping pong is not my new calling but it definitely was a lot of fun.  The event was tremendous and I really enjoyed meeting so many new people!

Young people getting together to play some pong now has a whole new meaning—once again GAWDA, you’ve opened my eyes to something new.  Thank you for a fantastic event in New York City!
