Today was a very special day in Booth 61 history. I was honored to have two wonderful people join me to discuss (co) lab 2013 created and produced by Leadership Atlanta. Ché Watkins is a senior executive with the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Spellman graduate and alumnus of Leadership Atlanta Class of 2009. David Lewis is a highly acclaimed director/producer/radio host, award winning journalist, Harvard graduate and alumnus of Leadership Atlanta Class of 2012. I am an old man being an alumnus of Leadership Atlanta Class of 1986 when the earth was still cooling and no one I know owned a computer. My how times have changed. Leadership Atlanta was a defining moment in my life and based on today’s interview, I believe it was a defining moment in the lives of Ché and David.
(co) lab 2013 is going to be an extraordinary experience filled with interactive sessions led by world leaders in education, government, politics, and business. Two time Pulitzer prize winning author from the New York Times, Thomas Friedman ends the sessions on Monday the 23rd. There are over 70 speakers from Sunday noon until the closing presentation including Sir Ken Robinson, Mayor Kasim Reed, Governor Nathan Deal, Ron Clark, Alan Dabbiere, David Cummings, Bud Peterson and the list goes on and on. I think this is the most important educational opportunity for people in our community in 2013.
