An excellent time was had by all at the AMA Summit recently, especially by your representing contingent from AMA Boston.

I was happy and honored to be able to attend the event at the Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois, with my colleagues on the Board of Directors, Bonnie Akerson, Parna Sarkar-Basu, Laura Chapman and Todd Holloway.

We attended a variety of educational sessions designed to both inform and Inspire us.

We met and mingled with members of dozens of the some 70 or so different AMA chapters throughout the country who were also there in attendance.

We sat in the audience to listen to many incredibly good speakers, including two electrifying, exhilarating keynote presentations delivered by Robert Rose and Sima Dahl.

A big thanks to the entire American Marketing Association team for putting together such a fantastic event.

Of course, I tweeted like crazy – some 60 times or so – during the three days we were there and was fortunate to be one of three attendees awarded a gift card for my social media coverage of the event. Thanks, AMA!

And thank you, AMA Boston, for giving me the opportunity to attend such a memorable, transformative conference.

Oh, yes. All those tweets I shared during the weekend. I turned them into one long Twitter moment which you can look at below. This should give you a good idea of just how much fun everyone had at the American Marketing Association’s 2018 Leadership Summit.
