  1. It seems that none of these are near me. I guess I will just have to go to BaCon in two weeks and get my convention fix. 🙂

  2. I am particularly interested in “Marketing for growth & Hiring to thrive”. Maybe it is because the title sounds great. As I have said in another post, you can never learn too much about marketing.
