The first day event ended with a Bang at Jason's house where we had a Poker tournament, Magician card Tricks, a Blasting Music & Dance Party with mouth watering dishes from an expert chef.

The Second & Final day started with a Morning Yoga followed by a presentation on Personal Branding from owner Dennis Smith.
I like his unique way of presenting the facts with the Quotes & Statistics.
One quote is like this.....In 21st century people are more inclined towards to Social media networking rather than watching.....
The other one.....The way the society is going to treat you is how many people you know rather than how much you worth.......

The nostalgic event got to an end with the final moments of get-together and departing one by one.

It was once again really nice meeting people like Claudia, Maren, Rayanne, Susan Burns, Anna, Carolyn, Susan Kang Nam, Julia, Penny Goodman, Alex, Maha, Erika, Dawn Williams, Dave Mendoza, John Sumser, Recruiting Animal, David Perry, Jerry Crispin, Dennis Smith, Joel Cheeseman, Brian, Kalch, Anthony, Geoff, Craig Silverman, Scott Love, Adam, Brendan, David Jacks, Andrew, Jerry Albright & of course Jason as well.....Please apologise me If i missed any of your names who were in the Recruitfest.......

Hey, Gopi - thanks for the update!

As miffed as I am for not being there I'm glad you and the others have come back with something for us all to share in.

Your pics are fantastic! You brought RecruitFest to me in a way I couldn't have gotten without your efforts. It really is appreciated.

Take care...
Hi Gopi, great post. I missed being able to sit in the sessions for any meaningful length of time. maybe the next one. Thanks for writing this.
