I had such a ridiculously awesome experience at the American Marketing Association‘s 2019 Leadership Summit at the Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois, last weekend (May 3-5, 2019).

It was a pleasure and joy to be surrounded by so many inspirational leaders and wicked smart marketers for some 72 hours.

I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to attend with my colleagues on the AMA Boston board of directors… Bonnie Akerson, Dina Dvinov and Meghan McGrath.

Bonnie gave an excellent presentation in accepting our chapter’s Turn-It-Up Chapter of the Year award.

During one of the breakout sessions, I was thrilled to be one of the panelists in a discussion on programming.

After one of the other sessions, I couldn’t have been more excited to take an epic group selfie with many fellow presidents of AMA chapters from all over the country. Look…

Finally, at the end of the event on Sunday, I was VERY happy to be honored for being “Most Active” on social media during the three days. I tweeted more than 50 times over the weekend and created the Twitter Moment below as a result. Enjoy.


Great people! Great conference! Great time!
