I’d never been as much in charge of an event as I was in charge of Leadership Communication Days, which took place in New York last week. So I was nervous. To prepare, I spent a whole day wandering around Manhattan, starting in Midtown and making my way down to McSorley’s (Wonderful Saloon), and then all the way back up to Midtown and some beer and chowder at The Oyster Bar at Grand Central—before dinner and more beer with a couple of speechwriters.
I woke brightly on the morning of the event, dressed crisply, read through my opening remarks one more time and gave myself the troublesome instructions: “Dave, don’t Murray this!”
It was great.
We’re going to do it again next year.
I think you should come.
