Fordyce Forum 2010 Final Photo & Slide Review

Sometimes you don’t realize the value of something until you get a little distance from it.

That WASN’T the case for me at this year’s Fordyce Forum 2010 at the M Resort in Las Vegas from June 9-11.   It was another great conference, and was just the shot in the arm I needed after a few months away from my desk and my businesses.

In four short years Fordyce Forum 2010 has become the most important training event for search and placement professionals that I attend every year.  This year was the best Fordyce Forum to date.

It had been a year since I was able to travel, in fact my last trip anywhere was to Las Vegas for Fordyce Forum 2009, which was also at the M Resort in Las Vegas almost exactly a year before.  Lucky for me, and thanks to some good health care and a little groveling to my MD and wife, I was fortunate enough to attend the 4th Fordyce Forum this June, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Again this year it was the phenomenal gathering of search and placement practitioners, owners, vendors and trainers you would expect from a brand as respected as Fordyce.

Though I have not yet completed my final written review of the event, I thought those who attended, as well as those who didn’t, might enjoy the photo and slide show below that was used in different iterations during the event.  I hope you enjoy it, and I hope to see you for Fordyce Forum 2011, which will be held in Las Vegas in early June, 2011,  for it’s 5th Annual gathering of the premier search and placement practitioners our profession has to offer.
