The Friday 5 – November 2

Queen Mary for Meetings and Events

OK, where did this week go?

I got a chance to visit the Queen Mary in Long Beach California and it is an amazing hotel and venue for events, I launched two new client websites, and last night I spoke to students in the meeting and event planning program at Kendall College in Chicago for a couple of hours…. busy is good but the time flew by!

Here are 5 posts that I found this week that will make you better at what you do!
