What a whirlwind week! I just got back from Amsterdam where we hosted a press tour for an “A-list” band of journalists: Joel Dreyfuss, Amy Wohl, and Dan Tynan.
It was simply an amazing week. We had the opportunity to tour the Dutch countryside and spend a lot of time in a van going to destinations that were “only 40 minutes away” from downtown Amsterdam.
Listening to them talk was like hearing a verbal history of the computer industry. These folks have simply “been there, done that” in a way that I didn’t think was possible. They have, literally, been involved with and personally witnessed the birth of every major technology; every major trend; every major piece of hardware and software.
They have consulted for every business in the Fortune 500 – and they have personal relationships with just about everyone you can read about in any type of media story. Period.
In addition to being terrific company – their insights and advice were really helpful – especially to a fast growing company like ours. Their vast knowledge of what works and what doesn’t, what to watch out for, and simple “…here’s what you do…” guidance will help us get even better.
It was a true honor and priviledge to meet them, get to know them, and break bread together.
I wanted to give a special thanks to them for taking so much time out of their impossibly busy schedules to meet with us – and also a special thanks to our own Brenda Christensen for getting it all together.
I’m looking forward to the next one!
