The cocktail making contest during the LCT Leadership Summit in 2013 offered a lot of beverage sampling.
I’m going to Miami Beach! The 2014 LCT Leadership Summit is finally here!
On Friday, I’m packing my bags to head out on that big ole jet airliner to Miami. I fear flying, so every time I fly, I freak out and have to take Xanax right before the flight. However, getting to any LCT event is always worth the pain and suffering that goes along with flying for me. Fortunately, Las Vegas is not too far from my hometown of Bakersfield, Calif., so I always drive to the International LCT Shows.
This one will be especially exciting to me because it’s being held at the famed Eden Roc Hotel where people like Cher and U.S. Presidents have vacationed. And, my first assignment as an LCT editor is to play golf! Wow! I like the assignment. I’m not very good so if you are attending and I yell, “FOUR,” you better duck – wherever you are. I am a little bummed that my fellow editors will be going on a guided food tour and deep sea fishing while I’m on the course, but that's O.K. I can chauffeur a cart.
On Monday, we get down to business with a breakfast and keynote speaker, Gary Vaynerchuck, an expert in social media. For those of you who know me know that I love Facebook, so I am eager to learn more about the use of social media in our industry. I also plan to learn more about mobile technology and consolidation trends in the business. There are plenty of social activities, too, such as a cocktailmaking contest! Yeah, I’m ready for that with my favorite concoctions that are sure to take first place!
Look for my posts and photos on Facebook during the Summit. If you can’t be there in person, I will take you there in photos! When I get back, I will update you on my first experience.
Limousines might be good for weddings, but prove troublesome for popping the question.
