As you probably already know, Danny, Robyn, Amanda and I have spent the last week relaxing, recharging and planning for the coming months away up in the great white north outside of Montreal.
It was a heck of a week, and I think I can speak for all of us when I say: we’re glad to be back.
It wasn’t all fun and naps, of course – we spent a lot of time talking about the wonderful experience we had launching the Audience Business Masterclass, running the Awesome Engagement Strategies Contest AND some of the exciting plans we have for the future.
I’m in the happy position today, of being able to tell you a little bit about something we’re planning.
But first – I’d like to tell you about once of my favorite Montreal events.
In November of 2012 and of 2011, I, intentionally and with enthusiasm aforethought, made a rampant fool of myself. I ran around the city (sometimes in costume!) making videos, snapping photos and writing bizarre little pastiches. My spouse ate a jar of mayonnaise. For real.
I was participating, with a double handful of friends, in the absolutely epic Impossible Montreal. What else but the thrill of competition could make otherwise sensible adults dress up like pirates and ride the metro for hours? To re-enact internet memes? To invent web-slingers? And yes – try to race cats.
I can tell you – it worked – we did – or at least attempted all of those things and more; meeting people, getting creative and generally having a really, really good time. (In case you were wondering my team won in 2011 and came in third in 2012.)
So what does all of this have to do with you?120
