2016 AMC Conference
Back in Queensland after a fabulous AMC Conference at Crowne Plaza in Coogee Beach. I made the trek south hoping that I would:
Have an injection of fresh, new ideas, Meet some like minded colleagues, Learn better ways on conducting the business side of my celebrancy, Learn better ways of conducting weddings and funerals, Have a lot of fun and do a lot of talking and listening, Frock up and have a boogie, Find ways to set the bar higher.
I returned home having:
Met lots and lots of great celebrants of all ages with varying degrees of experience, with similar philosophies and having formed some wonderful new (and old) friendships, Academically learning truckloads, Full of new and innovative business ideas and practices, Completed my OPD, Danced and danced my little legs off.
Enjoyed fab and talented band “Slide McBride”.
Having been sucked in and absolutely splitting my sides laughing at the “guest speaker” Monsieur Roland de Heye (say his name quickly a few times!) – actually comedian Rodney Marks – absolutely tops.
The Conference ran so smoothly – everything flowed so well which takes a LOT of planning. The Conference Committee had everything from registration to fond farewells down pat. It must have felt like herding cats at times as celebrants love to talk – with 4 conference rooms all busily in action simultaneously – it flowed with a minimum of fuss.
I could go on and on but all round the Conference gave me more that I had hoped to gain – oh and I won a ‘you-beaut’ pretty white music stand that I will use over and over!
Thank you AMC!
