Our Supply Chain Management team took a few hours yesterday to look back over 2009 and celebrate our achievements.
We were treated to a buffet-style lunch at a local restaurant and had a recognition ceremony (as well as a fun trivia game and prize drawings throughout the day). One person from each work group was recognized for their outstanding contributions this past year, as well as a new "Team of the Quarter" traveling trophy was awarded. (No, I didn't win either one. Rats.) But it was still a cool way to get everyone together and recognize what some of the other groups had accomplished.
The afternoon was capped off with a tour of the CNN Studios in Atlanta. I hadn't been on the tour yet, and it was SUPER COOL to see the CNN broadcast live and in person, as well as the newsroom floor bustling and buzzing with journalists. We were watching during a segment that Ali Velshi was hosting, and afterwards had a chance to meet for Q&A with Jennifer Westhoven, who hosts a Personal Finance section on HLN's morning show with Robin Meade.
Thank you to everyone who helped plan this event, and thanks to my company for sponsoring it!
