    Attended my first WDW tonight. Wow! Mary shared touching insights, especially the idea that our customers bring stereotypes with them of our industries. And the crew from Belarus--I loved hearing about Belarus and its 10,000 lakes and rivers. I met a bunch of people and am looking forward to meeting the rest of you!

    Will try but I have a late client, so probably won't be able to. Sounds like a great venue and speaker line up!
