ABC Los Angeles + Travel UpdatesWednesday, June 17, 2009
This past Monday I was in California for meetings and to speak at the Greater Los Angeles chapter of the Association of Bridal Consultants. I spoke on social media and the attendees had great questions to ask. I love when people aren't afraid to ask questions, learn more, dig deeper and don't just take what a speaker says at face value. The photo above is of me obsessing over these little cuties created by Carissa of JL Designs:
Today I am in Raleigh, North Carolina for the second to last Blogging Bootcamp that will happen on the East Coast (the other one being in Norfolk, Virginia in August). One of the things I love most about these workshops is being able to see firsthand how the wedding industry interacts on a local level across the country. While each area has their own vibe, it has been encouraging to see the similarities and to meet people who are committed to raising the bar in the wedding industry. You can learn more about the Blogging Bootcamps and find one near you by checking out the main workshop website.
On Sunday, I fly to Grand Cayman for Engage!09 and am so excited that some other ladies from Arizona are attending this time (for the past two Engage conferences, I have been the lone Phoenician in attendance) - Heather and Jennifer from Outstanding Occasions and Teresa from Camelback Flowershop. On Tuesday, I'll be speaking on social media as it relates to the wedding industry along with Bee Kim from Weddingbee and Lara Casey from Southern Weddings. If you're attending, be sure to say hello! I'd love to meet you.
