I am grateful to have had the opportunity to sit and get to know one of our vendors tonight. We had talked on the phone, worked on design projects and had become mildly friendly, but not had a chance to meet face to face. Most of our colleagues had left the convention I was attending, but because of flight schedules, we both were leaving the next day. While we had certainly been cordial during the summit and had opportunities to speak, it’s amazing what exchange can happen when two people sit quietly without distraction and talk. It felt really good to just stop and talk.
