Everyone in attendance wore name tags and referred to each other by the first names our mommas gave us. For some in attendance it had been a while since they had been addressed by their proper first name. I discovered one of my neighbors was actually named Wilbert. We got a friendly kick out of that.
The dropping of the pretenses was kinda refreshing.
The event lasted until 4pm. For six hours straight, Catherine took charge and led us through some of the same exercises that are done at normal CEO training camps!
