    My first time at a APRA-GNY gathering and newbie in industry. Energy palpable, attendees open to sharing. Impressed with the gathering -- opportunity to network, learn and build on experiences. Troy Smith was cordial and knowledgeable presenter; willing to cede platform to others eager to share their insights and pacing was optimal. Happy to have met Matthew Perrin whom I only knew through emails and benefited from his wisdom. Yana was so gracious to answer my questions at the end of the evening. Suzi Barlow shared her enthusiasm for the industry (you look just like your pic). Face-to-face with Poonam Prasad, who according to my supervisor is a rock star. I somehow missed meeting Bill Powers who has been so, so kind to me...guiding and leading this sheep. Apologies to woman sitting in front of me who asked me who I worked for, barely got my answer out and lost track of her when a side conversation took me off course. Hope I see you next event!

      Sue, it was a delight to meet you. Bill didn't attend, but you can meet him at the April happy hour. I am working on setting up a date for that.
