Arizona Sunbelt MPI Chapter started the New Year focusing on YOU! The program was sponsored by Rawhide and the Flagstaff CVB with Deborah Gardner as our main speaker.
Rawhide created an inviting western environment from enjoying some good ole town music with rowdy cowboys, gun slinging and cattle roping. This all was happening during the mini tradeshow event with our chapter committees accompanied by Rawhide's finest appetizers. After a little networking it was time to rally the troops into the Sunset Room for our main session.
Our 2011-2012 President, Rochell Planty welcomed everyone. She then welcomed Susie Molinich as emcee for the program. Brian Crum, General Manager and Kara Menke, Director of Sales of Rawhide welcomed the group and spoke a little about the property's history and how Rawhide is a great place for all. Gail Jackson from the Flagstaff CVB shared the new things happening in Flagstaff from group bike tours, a new adventure course for team building and snow machines coming to the slopes. The Radisson Woodlands and Little America also shared highlights on their properties.
An on time start set the stage for our main speaker, Deborah Gardner. She energized the room with a very interactive program on best ways to manage your time. She started off by demonstrating a typical day of interruptions that all of us could relate too. Then keeping the room engaged she asked about what helps you to effectively manage your time and what gets in the way. She shared with us different ways to help manage our day with technology, people and other helpful tips. We all know it is important to manage our time wisely and time management is key.
