Thanks Switch . . . for the welcoming hospitality and hosting one of the best REBUS events to date. More than 115 attendees fit easily into the space you carved out of your new 95,000 square foot facility! It's a spectacular new space and you supported a sensational evening.
Last Thursday was an exciting milestone for REBUS. When Tim Sandifort and I started talking about REBUS more than four years ago, we never could have imagined the response and growth that's occured. Four years have just flown by . . .
I want to thank Switch, Mike O'Neil for saying yes, and Andrew Mullins and Josh Kocurek for their helpful input and managing the details. Jen Simler and Jessica Hutson from Switch also sit on the REBUS leadership Committee and are invaluable with suggestions and their enthusiastic follow up. Danny Elchert and Rachael Barbieri, the current REBUS co-Chairs are just rock solid in following through with all the detail and people management involved in an event like this one.
What a night! From the cake shaped like a bus, to DJ Andro1d, the "Twitterfitti wall" where we could watch live, the tweets containing the party hashtag #REBUS5th, tours of the new Switch offices and facilities and a presentation on new media marketing by Switch CD Scott Burns. It was wonderful.
Scott's presentation started with an announcement that a graphic designer was hired by Paradowski Creative, as a result of our visit there last month, and a portfolio review. It's a reminder of one of the other REBUS benefits, networking with those colleagues and friends who can help support, and enhance your career. See some other REBUS facts at "REBUS By The Numbers".
