There are a number of reasons that I’m not in the event production business, but one of the biggest is that I don’t understand how moving an event from November to February at the last minute actually improves attendance. But that’s exactly what has happened. We rescheduled the Prosperity Partnership Luncheon in early November (a week before it was supposed to happen) to its new date of February 26, and now we’re 30 seats away from selling out.
I mean, I know that our keynote – Alan Mulally, President & CEO of Ford Motor Company – is a big draw, but is he even more popular now than he was in November? Is it the fact that Governor Gregoire is also going to speak? Is it the fact that we changed the entree from arctic char to chicken mole?
I’ll never know. But I do know that this is the last chance for folks to register for the event before it’s too late. And between Mulally, Gregoire and our annual satirical ballad from Dave Ross, it’s a can’t miss. Register now.
