To begin to post-rationalize the last 5 days spent in Dublin toon, I’d like to share two, rather key, takeaways;
1. The zenith of a fine conference and everything you expect from a good takeaway; a 24 hour faux American diner joint, surrounded by good friends and eating the quite aptly named ‘Smokestack’ beef burger, lovingly greased up with smoked applewood cheese and bacon.
2. The distinct feeling of being fired up!
5 days in the company of interesting people with ‘disruptive’ points of view leaves me with a notion to turn this ship arooooound!!
In all honesty, before arriving, the thought of these events made me shudder as I began to imagine the quintessential ‘receiving and blowing smoke up ones ass’ rhetoric; otherwise known as a ‘conference’. How very cynical of me.
By joves there are some clever and inspiring people out there, and I am all the better for meeting them! When these minds come together, the future becomes exhilarating! Let’s get emotional!
