Leaving early this morning for my companies annual Symposium in Orlando, which is nowhere near as much fun as it used to be when it was in South Beach, Miami. But, with only Mickey as a distraction, it’s also nowhere near as alcohol infused.
It is however a whirlwind of non-stop half hour meetings, break-out sessions, key note speakers, panel discussions, one of which I’m presenting and moderating and early starts and late finishes.
Orlando is an odd place to visit unless you are drawn to the many parks. Otherwise it is a large sprawling flat landscape of sidecar entertainment attractions, shopping malls, fast food restaurants and timeshare complexes with a criss-cross of highways where everywhere is 20 minutes away. Most certainly not South Beach.
Yes, it’s a real “Mickey Mouse” sort of place, which I believe most people “Universally” agree.
