800-CEO-READ Author Pow Wow – Update and Thank you

800-CEO-READ Author Pow Wow – Update and Thank you

By Rajesh Setty on Thu 06 Dec 2007, 8:30 PM – 12 Comments

Earlier this week, I attended the Author Pow-Wow event organized by 800-CEO-READ. When I signed up, I didn’t know what to expect (I had not attended the first such event last year) but I knew it was going to be great. I think GOD saves the best for the last. I have to say that this was by far the BEST event I attended this year.

When the conference ended on day two, the only sad part was that it ENDED.

Here are all the people that attended and my thanks to all of them for being there and giving their best

Raj – As I said to you at the end of the session, my biggest regret was not getting time with you. I am confident we will remedy that in the future – hopefully long before next year’s Pow Wow.

I look forward to staying in touch since we’re both out here in the Valley. Given what you do, you might enjoy my post of a video I borrowed from Phil Gerbyshack’s site. It hit close to home for me!
