Spring ERE Expo in San Diego wrapped up last week, and I have to say that, like many of my colleagues, I had a blast. This year, I didn’t have booth duty, so I could participate fully in the sessions, catch up with my pals, and meet new folks.
Sadly, I missed the charity poker tournament (I was having too good a time in the Gaslamp district). The event raised $7,500 for autism. Congratulations to Jason Martorana, the winner. I’m coming for that bracelet next year!
I did manage to enjoy a great dinner at a fun place run by Top Chef season 5 contestant Rich Sweeny (“Spanky”), who served up gourmet tater tots (seriously, the best you’ll ever eat) and the dish on Fabio, reality TV, and Top Chef drama. Nothing like great food and geeky discussions about talent, recruiting, and creepy social recruiting tools.
