This day was no joke – I was out the door and at a client meeting by 7:30; we’re in the midst of planning a HUGE 35th anniversary event with over 700 attendees. It’s an understatement to say that there’s a lot of moving pieces involved in such an event. The committee chair started the meeting with horrible news – the keynote speaker had cancelled and the event program had just gone to print! The committee is very action oriented and after some deep breathing reacted with brainstorming a new speaker and how to pull the program from production. Then WHAM, she yelled, “APRIL FOOLS”! Oh my goodness – we all fell for it hook, line and sinker – all ten in the room. Stunned disbelief ensued and we all laughed and laughed and laughed!
