    Bud Vincent here. I attended the Tourism Board session at St Jude Hotel in Clarenville and have to say, it was well planned. The session was spot on and everyone enjoyed it. Believe me, I do not hand out 10s very easily but you folks earned it. Craig, I liked that technology via Skype session…a few computer related access blips but I did learn a bunch of things. The funding partners and the HR sessions were absolutely super. All operators in the province have to get involved with these…maybe the EDMO can get involved in this. We are not totally set up yet; however, this will come.

    The various partners staff were oh so knowledgeable (very noticeable and much appreciated). Overall it was a totally positive experience. I can’t say that I have been there done that before because this setup and content was spot on…and I learned from it too. This would be absolutely super if it could somehow be incorporated into HNL’s Annual Conference.

    I’m glad that I attended and delighted too to see the EDMO staff person Kathi Stacey there front and centre…great stuff!

    I must admit I had not attended one of these type sessions before and I am excited and don’t mind saying it. Hats off to the organizers and to the partners! Coming from an old fella like me, that is a real good compliment!
