Happy Sunday everyone!
And the flights and travel continue!
As I mentioned in previous blog posts, I visited Seattle and Portland over Memorial Day weekend with my family.
2 days later I flew with a colleague to Atlanta to visit the Southern Region Team and meet reps who I hadn’t met in person yet.
2 days later I then flew with a colleague BACK to Atlanta for a training session in North Carolina.
My flight was originally supposed to leave around 10:30 am Sunday morning, June 5th. The airline canceled it and rebooked me but the layover via Minnesota would have put me into Atlanta late.
So I took the 5:30 AM flight direct to Atlanta, grabbed my luggage and rental car and grabbed a hotel for a few hours, napped, and picked up my colleague coming from Michigan and we drove 140 miles north to our destination.
Nisah Tahara, my head of Training, Learning, and Development, and I did a training session with a client over 2 days I had never met her before but we had spoken countless times via phone and Zoom, and wonderful to meet her.
We drove back to the airport, dropped off the rental car, and parted ways. I enjoyed my time with her as well as the client doing live training. First time since the pandemic. Other sessions had been strictly remote.
3 trips down 1 more to go. I head to Indianapolis, IN tomorrow morning!
I’m Ray Ruecker with Connect 5000.
