On July 23rd I had the awesome pleasure of attending the very first conference I’d ever organized. Despite some blips during the day, it was truly a success. There was excellent content, great community and it sold out, a feat we dreamed about, but weren’t sure we could actually achieve.
At the end of the day, Lara, the chair of the organizing committee, called us to the front of the room to thank us for our help.
I stood there feeling relief that things had gone well. I felt unbelievable happiness at the overwhelmingly positive response from the people who gave up their Saturday to attend. I felt part of something that was truly great and lasting. Something I wanted to continue.
Social Capital Conference was truly a great moment in this year and I think it will be even better in 2012.
