'Get Collaborative' in Wellington is complete, and we had a great event. In fact, the whole New Zealand leg of the roadshow was outstanding. We hadn't run an event like this in Wellington for a little while and so we weren't sure what/who/how many to expect. We had a really strong turn-out, some familiar faces and some new ones. I'm not sure how many of the 'webstock' crowd were there, but we had some good questions - tough ones in fact.
I have a week in the Sydney office now, before taking 'Get Collaborative' back on the road for attendees in Canberra, Adelaide and Perth next week.
My co-presenter from New Zealand, Jose Quezada, is on his way back to San Francisco. He's having his second attempt at getting home after the Air New Zealand Boeing 777 he was on yesterday turned back to Auckland after four and a half hours across the Pacific with an engine vibration. So not only did Jose get an extra night in Auckland, he also got a 9 hour Auckland to Auckland joy flight courtesy of Air New Zealand. Here's the detail.
Imagine those frequent flyer points eh? And, inside joke alert, I wonder if it was a Pratt & Whitney engine?
