From the registration desk to the raffle, to the fantastic workshops and the book signing, everything was so well orchestrated that it was a smooth ride for the attendees. I wouldn't say the organizers didn't meet challenges. I'm sure they did. But we never saw them sweat, and the event seemed flawless.
First, I want to recognize a few of the speakers the camera liked. Unfortunately they weren't all in the pictures, but here are a few hilights.
Bob Mayer is thinking hard
Agent Cherry Weiner had a great time
Brenda Novak had a long line at the book signing
