Perfect Days

There are days when it all just goes according to plan:

  • the hotel is in the right location
  • the traffic doesn’t snarl up
  • the room is airy, well-lit and air-conditioned
  • the room layout is correct
  • the organisers do a great job of hosting (thank you Practice Plan)
  • the guests are all in the mood
  • the speaker manages to hold the room
  • the material is interesting and relevant to the needs of the audience
  • there is a “can do” atmosphere

Yesterday was such a day in Bury.
Over 115 delegates attended possibly one of my best ever workshops.
The feedback at the conclusion was unanimously positive.
Plenty of practices leaving the workshop with 90-day goals and a 24-month plan to galvanise their marketing.
A chance for me to say “hello” to some old friends.
And the bonus – my youngest daughter Ellie attending as a work-experience day.
You know what?
It doesn’t get any better.
