So today was the big day where I got the chance to network with some of my peers and fellow overachievers in New York and get recognized for Cablefax’s “Overachievers Under 30″. Going in, I had no idea what to really think of the event or the gravity of the situation. Upon arrival, though, I realized that it was actually a more humbling experience than I first thought, and that I am truly honored to be surrounded with such bright and forward-thinking leaders in my industry. It really gives me a lot of hope for the future of the industry, and I got to make some great connections that will last a lifetime. Of special interest were several of my interactions with mentors and peers from companies very closely aligned to mine (e.g. Comcast and Mediacom), and I have full intent to keep in touch with those individuals often. Events like these can sometimes be a glorified dog-and-pony show, but I do really feel that this one was a highly-worthwhile event. Cheers to Cablefax and the whole Access Intelligence family for putting on such a great event.
Now I’m off to LinkedIn to ensure I get these contacts in my network ASAP!
Til Next Time,
