Creativation Day 1 Recap: I had breakfast with the amazing @gwen.bortner and checked into #Creativation2020 using their pretty slick check-in system. I was impressed.
I took a class on getting started at Creativation with @kizerandbender and sat next to the lovely @dawnlewisimagery and made fast friends.
For lunch, I wandered down to the Convention Center taco stand (obvs, this is Phoenix) and did a very non-introvert thing and asked to sit with a group of people... and I'm so glad I did, because I had a blast! Shawna, Erica and Michael are my new conference besties 💕 They are part of a contingent here that works for the Army, running art studios on bases. I had such an amazing chat and am really impressed by the programs they're running!
I tought a class on managing difficult customers and online brand management, which went great and then popped into Gwen's class on planning a retreat. At Creativation, the classes are included in your registration, so it's a fabulous learning buffet!
At dinner, I met up with @purlandloop and @edieeckman for more fantastic conversation.
These events are ALL about the networking. It might not come easy to you, but just put yourself out there and chat to someone new. It's totally worth it! - 4 minutes ago
