Mentor event at the Downtown Phoenix Sheraton

Mentor event at the Downtown Phoenix Sheraton

 

Instead of writing some drowsy recap of last Thursday’s Mentor Committee Kickoff event, I decided simply to list my notebook’s main points:

–>  Great event, great people, great discussions, great connections, great food, great vendors. Free.

Congratulations to the State Bar of Arizona and the affiliated groups that staged the event. (Read more about it here and here.) And keeping with the list theme that busy people like so much, here is the evening by the numbers:

    • 226 attendees (plus those many I saw stroll in without signing in and getting a name badge)
    • 4 vendors
    • 3 hours complimentary valet parking
    • 1,500 appetizers
    • 7,200 ice cubes
    • 1,000 conversations
    • 10/20/11: Networking event by the Bar’s YLD/Sole Practitioner and Small Firm Sections
    • 11/17/11: Networking event by the Bar’s YLD/Mentor Committee/Sole Practitioner and Small Firm Sections

    I’ll provide more detail on those evening events as we get closer. But put them in your calendar now.
