From my perspective, it's a great platform for putting faces to the names I've been seeing since I started at simpleview on August 1st of last year. When I work on tickets, I get to see all the communication that takes place between the clients and my Project Managers. Occasionally, I'll read requests from the clients and handle them directly, as they come in.
On some projects, there's very little mediation between the client and myself. If the project is long enough and if the client has enough requests, I start to feel like I know the client.
For months, I looked forward to Summit, to be able to actually put those faces to the names I'd been seeing for a while.
And then it arrived.
There were so many people. I was expecting a crowd but not on the scale which I encountered. Hundreds upon hundreds of people were there - it was almost overwhelming. Needless to say, I had a hard time finding the clients I wanted to find. I would provide some actual examples but the one thing I've been asked to do - when blogging or vlogging about my work - is "don't mention any clients by name". So I shan't (unless given permission by the client to do so...).
When I was at Summit, I filmed myself as much as I could. I honestly thought I was filming too much. But now that I've cut and posted the videos, I realize that I was not filming nearly enough. And some of the stuff I did film was fairly useless. That didn't stop me from making videos out of them.
It's a two-part post on YouTube.
and Day 2:
I would say "enjoy!" but I'm woefully aware of how unlikely that is to happen.
