Gel Conference 2011 : April 28th to 30th New York

Last year I attended the GEL conference and I would put it in the top 3 in my list of conferences. Them is " Good Experience' - along with speakers we got a chance to experience traveling and discovering new and unique experiences. I also heard Sal Kan of the Khan Academy speak and Ysaye Barnwell make the whole conference stand up and sing a great melody. Eric Singer and his musical instruments and many other excellent speakers. You get an inspiring takeaway from the conference that you can carry back to your own customers and their experience. Mark Hurst did a great job with the GEL concept.

I still remember learnimg about the restaurant concept od Maialino from Terry Coughlin, general manager of Maialino and his team.

I have a family conflict on the 28th so I will sadly miss it this time and I am looking forward to next time.

I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
