Segway Guy

I heard a story from the Extravaganza that I need to share with you.  It’s pretty amazing. If you were there, you know that we rented a Segway for use during the “segue” moments on the main stage.  We rented from a local St. Louis company, who would bring the Segway before each general session, ...

Extravaganza: What’s In A Name

I get this question about once a year:  “Extravaganza?  Why would I go to that?  We don’t have the funds for me to go to something that is extravagant!” I thought it might be helpful to explain a bit.

Who We Are

In the last couple of weeks of November, we did a demographic survey of our Network members.  We e-mailed our members, inviting them to take the online survey sometime over a period of two weeks.  We had a good response to the invitation.  Our response rate was 52%. There are two reasons we did the ...

Reflections on Evaluation

This past weekend, the Extravaganza team leaders met at the Hyatt in Anaheim, site of the 2013 Extravaganza, to process the evaluations from the New Orleans event, and to do the organizational planning for ’13. We spent quite a bit of time processing the evaluations, and I just wanted to share a couple of observations ...
