      Hi Crystal

      Is it too late to get an invoice from you? Thanks! Sarah

    Hi Folks, I would love to hear how the Tufte event was. Feel free to let me know if you would you ever want these kinds of events to be offered again. Best, Crystal

      The speaker was good before lunch but after lunch he started trailing off. Books are a bargain. That was nice.

      Only gripe would be the discount process. I wonder if my business is going to accept it since I technically did not purchase the seminar. Yes, i am happy for the discount, but if i can expense it then I would be even happier.

      I can create an invoice for you, if that would help.

    This seminar was well worth the price. Of course I know we can't always go to pricey events, but if there is one with a high profile person who is innovative, concise and informative, then I'm willing to make the sacrifice. I'm actually going to use Edward Tufte's tools for an upcoming client presentation. What a great way to beat the competition! What I would like is to have a follow-up with regards to this (information and communication/selling ideas--along the lines of Tufte's seminar)where we can do something hands on. I felt that there is so much to learn with regards to the content he presented that it deserves more follow-up workshops. Thanks for being such a seamless organizer Crystal!!

    Parking downtown can be expensive. Here are some options listed with the cost. If you can, it would be great for folks to carpool.

    I will be driving to the event from OC (Tustin). If anyone else lives in that area and would like to carpool, let me know!

    I really wish I could take advantage of the group rate, but as it is, my employer will not reimburse me for payments sent to an individual's account.

    Anybody else facing the same dilemma? And, if so, how did you go about solving the issue?

    January 24, 2013

    • lynn

      i had to lobby long and hard to convince USC that it would be OK to make the payment to the individual account; their concerns were around accountability and legitimacy in case THEIR records were audited, as well as the question of taxation. In the end they did it, but VERY reluctantly.

      January 24, 2013

    • Crystal Ehrlich, UX D.

      Hi Alberta, I just added you to the event so you could receive the email messages I'm sending out. I'll see what I can do to help you get in as part of our group.

      January 24, 2013

  • Sarah D.

    Do we need a ticket or anything when we arrive on Tuesday?

    January 24, 2013

  • Beth W.

    Thank you for setting up the group rate Crystal! Is anyone heading from the Venice or Marina del Rey area who would like to carpool?
