Time to think in Las Vegas!!

IMG_2897.JPG
Now here’s a rare event in the life of an internal communications bod – an enforced week away from the bosom of the office in…Las Vegas. And it’s work!

Me and a colleague are off next week to an über-conference in the desert of Nevada to share our ESN success story at JiveWorld 14 and yes, it feels as nuts as it sounds. 

Las Vegas isn’t a place that I’d normally choose to visit, but, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited and stupid if I didn’t throw myself into it completely – bar drunken tattoos, getting married (again) etc etc. 

It also comes at a time of change in my role, as I explore how our internal approach to social media and digital communications can also support our client’s own digital and social strategies. Internal clients to external clients…what could go wrong?

So this part-time blogger thought this would be a good time to explore my own changing role and the changing role of internal communications in a series of blog posts both here and on my internal blog. I’m not convinced Vegas is the best place to achieve clarity of thought, but I’ll be missing my family and will have plenty of time to think…which is more than I can say for my wife who will be managing two boys as well as trying to find some peace herself.

So as I travel to Vegas for some thinking space I thought it was a good time to ask, where’s the weirdest place you experience clarity of thought? Shower?

  1. I’m not sure that I’ve ever fully achieved clarity of thought, but the best light bulb moments have occurred at times of increased stress, such as at the opera, watching Downton Abbey, and not being drunk enough in Las Vegas. Enjoy your visit, it’s one of my favourite people watching destinations in the world!

    • Last time I visited a casino I was amazed to see people doing the slots whilst attached to oxygen tanks. People watching will be high on the agenda. Downton Abbey creates clarity in my house – everyone clears the room!
