Today is the day that Convention 2013 REALLY starts!
There is 10 of us all together here now and we all have a variety of things happening at different times today. We arrived at the Salt Palace Convention Centre together and many of our group had a Home Office tour time of 9:30, so they lined up for the busses. I was fortunate to be chosen to participate in a small focus group with other demonstrators and Stampin’ Up staff first thing this morning. The only thing I can tell you is that it was about Kits.
I re-connected with Jill and hopped on the bus with her early this afternoon. Here is how the Main Office was decorated as you entered:
The Idea Room at Home office is my favourite – a super cool, open, and creative space. One part of the space is a whiteboard room – 3 full walls white boards and 1 glass wall. Here is Jill writing one of many messages:
The opening mainstage presentation began at 5:30 in the evening, so we all got into our new “Be the Difference shirts and got back to the Convention Centre. Here we are from left to right: Heather Cooper, Jill Konduc, Amy Jasper, Terry Hamilton, Holly Finney, Tamara Casorso, and myself:
After that was the Opening Social and there was so much to do! Including volunteering to help create birthday kits for children at Primary Children’s Medical Centre, and trying to set a World Record – Most Greeting Cards Sent Simultaneously from a Single Location! We sent 2, 984 cards in just a couple hours and we got the Guinness World Record!
