Work Work Work - Day 3

Today was all business.  Okay, maybe not ALL business, but I didn't see any sights, so I didn't have any pics.  This morning, I decided that instead of running, I would do some tai chi.  First stop, the luxurious fitness center.  Nope!  No room for tai chi there.  So far, the only thing that place has been useful for is a drink of water.  I went up a floor to the conference area.  One of the hospitality staff came by, so I asked him if I could do some tai chi there.

"No.  We've got a group coming in here in five minutes."

Dang!  They start early around here.  Next, I found myself out in the car park.  It is underground and had the faint smell of diesel fuel.  There were comings and goings during my workout and I got some pretty strange looks.

Breakfast was pretty much the same as yesterday, but I did have the beans on toast today.  I suppose I could get used to it, but nothing beats a Snickers bar and a Coke.

The remainder of the day was filled with briefings, software demos and round tables.  Interestingly, none of the round tables where held around a round table, but we did have some interesting, if inconclusive discussions.

I'm currently reading a book entitled Human Interations: The Heart and Soul of Business Process Management.  At the mixer after the sessions, I had a chance to meet Keith Harrison-Broninski, the author.  Turns out, he loves jazz and funk.  There was some overlap between our favorites, but we both have a bunch of new music to share with each other.

Tomorrow is my big day.  I'm giving my presentation.  I think I recruited at least two attendees, so I won't be completely alone unless they change their minds.  Then, it's off to Amsterdam on the Holland Hook!
