President's Report

Hi to all,

As we all get back into the swing of meetings and networking from our wonderful summer break and vacations, it was great to see you all at our September NACE meeting. We were grateful to have in as our speaker Sarita Maybin, who is a speaker on Ted Talks, has published a book and speaks all over the country. Her speech covered areas in our lives of  "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."  This high energy presentation based on Sarita's book provides practical approaches and positive phrases for those times when you need to say something NOT so nice… without destroying the relationship. Her tools she shared reached into the areas of life for business as well as personal and allowed us all to see how we can overcome some roadblocks that can occur.  Our wonderful host facility took care of all accommodations and allowed us to experience some of the other professionals in our industry for photos, video, linens, entertainment, bakery/desserts and coordinating. Thank you to Morgan Wessells of the Mission Valley Hilton for all she did to create a great meeting for us.  

We look forward to seeing you all at our October meeting at The Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens in Liberty Station. We will be creating a team building event around floral design for everyone to "build" and take home a personal creation at the end of the evening. See you all there. 

Patrick Higgins
San Diego NACE - President
