Keynote Sessions Provide WOW! Moments


And now the final chapter for this year! The HFTP 2012 Annual Convention & Tradeshow is now history, but oh so rich. A new record in attendance, thanks again Orlando, a city that has been great for HFTP.

If you were there and missed the first Keynote, Shawn Achor’s “The Happiness Advantage,” or if you could not make the convention, check out his TED Talk on the same topic. It is not the same without the presenter and that is why we encourage members to make every effort to attend conventions, but it will be worth your while seeing it. We know these years are tough, but start planning for next year.

Topping the first Keynote session, in my view, was the second Keynote, “Nobody Moved Your Cheese,” presented by Ross Shafer. Unlike the book “Who Moved My Cheese,” the facts and delivery by the presenter was a “WOW!”

In conclusion, Frank Wolfe and the entire Austin staff do a wonderful job for this organization in preparing for and managing such outstanding conventions. I have not done any surveys, but I doubt there are any organizations that can boast the job equal to or better than what we get for our money. I am and will always be grateful to HFTP.
