Welcome to July! We hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July. The UP Experience 2011 is now just 4 months away! Which speakers are you looking forward to seeing this year?
The women of UP 10 have been busy. Speaker Wendy Schiller took to the airwaves this week on NPR’s Talk of the Nation program to discuss “What’s Wrong With Congress, And How To Fix It.”
Meanwhile her UP 10 colleague and Houston resident Gracie Cavnar praised Relish Fine Foods a new “fine foods neighborhood market” opening up in Houston’s River Oaks neighborhood. All this coming weekend the new store will be donating part of its proceeds to Cavnar’s foundation, Recipe for Success.
Dan Pink, who will be joining us at UP 2011, posted an intriguing blog post this week about the “FedEx Day” a concept from his book Drive encouraging companies to work on “non-commissioned” work during traditional work hours. Have you or your employers given this a try?
UP 09 speaker, Robert Ballard, found his name in the news again for his discovery of the sunken wreck of the infamous Titanic, nearly 26 years ago. New 3D images of the Titanic were shown in court this week in an ongoing battle regarding salvage claims.
