Conference Day 1 – It ain’t so bad

After a 5am start, a bus ride for an hour and a half, and a crude breakfast served in a brown paper bag, the conference isn’t as excruciating as I imagined.

The director opened proceedings and shot from the hip, no punches pulled. There were no bonuses because as a corporation we didn’t hit our numbers – simple. He agreed that everyone did the best they could and that even though external/non-controllable factors were a greater influence on the poor profitability, the rules are the rules. I respect the honesty. If anything, I have a newfound respect for the company. When truths are laid out like that, it eliminates the mistrust and suspicion, creating a desire to move on.

This could be an interesting conference, after all.
