For me there were a couple of things that happened right away. I’m talking about during and after the event.
- Quite your bitching: The night of the opening party I walked from venue back to my hotel. It was about 30 minutes in my nice shoes. After listening to Scott Harrison talk about a lady walking 4 hours each way to pick up water, all of a sudden things didn’t seem so bad.
- Run the Point (Take Action): Convention is to think that it’s someone else’s job. On my way to the airport the bins that we used to put our shoes, computers, etc. was running extremely low. Everyone is standing around like they are going to fill themselves. I just went to an area where they had an abundant grabbed one. Just kidding, I grabbed enough to refill the stack.
- Run the Point part 2: I’m watching “Hunger Games” on my flight back home, it looks interesting so I swipe my credit card and I’ll set to go; or so I thought. About 15 minutes into to the movie, it cuts off. I alert a flight attendant, told them what happened and they tells me, “Did you see a notification that says, ‘please press the arrow key to confirm your purchase?” I said, “no” and she says, “Sorry, there isn’t anything we can do.” I was really disappointed; I looked at the instructions that live in the back of the seat pocket and notice that nothing written to let you know. I could have let this go, but decided to write JetBlue about my frustration and my suggestions on how they could make it better. The important thing here is writing the part about how it can be made better.
Those are three quick impacts that I felt where revived by attending WDS 2012.
What were some of your immediate impacts? Leave a comment below.
As always my goal is to help you Run The Point (Take Action) from where you are, with what you have.
