The Glass Half Full Wine Event was sponsored by the Human Capital Institute
at the ERE Conference
in Hollywood - Florida that is. It was so amazing I feel that saying anything more about it would not do it justice but I know I have to so I will do my best to capture the many great moments of the evening.
The wine was delicious. I don't know how to explain it any other way. It was a selection of ice wines, regular wines, lots of port and champagne getting their corks hacked off with a very big knife. It was all very good. I know it was expensive wine and though that does not mean something is good, in this case, with this evening, all the wine was just way over the top good.
I always think that no one will show up and everything is going to fall apart. The first one to walk through the door was Ethan Bloomfield
and he says I have 5 other people coming is that ok. I said sure. The next one in was Kevin Wheeler
and he picks up an empty wine glass that says The Human Capital Institute on it and heads over to the sommelier
. They start talking, Kevin gets something delicious poured into his glass and I knew at that moment the night was going to work out just fine.
All night long, people were discussing wines and recruiting and everything. People were enjoying the sea breeze from the balcony and there was a ton of great food and the amazing thing is, all the wine got finished. I couldn't believe it. I think there were about 50 -70 different people who came through the door and grabbed a glass and ( I'm gonna make up a word here) became deliciousified by the unbelievable deliciousness of all that wine and champagne. I'm still recovering.
organized the entire event and made sure the night ended up being the night it was. Thanks Maren, It was really amazing and I got so many compliments on how great the night was and everyone knows you are the one who put it all together. Josh Akers
- that guy knows how to work and he also knows how to sell , but the thing he is absolutely best at is that he knows how to carry vast amounts of ice from one place to another place. He and I moved mountains of ice about an hour before everyone showed up and then we moved furniture, cleaned glasses while opening lots and lots of wine bottles. We were the help.
It was amazing to see so many people having a good time in a very nice room with a view. Everyone was talking about stuff that was interesting and it was being discussed everywhere. It's good to catch up with old friends and its good to make new friends.
I want to say thanks to everyone who came out to help create a very memorable and delicious evening and I want to say Thank You very much to Capture Wines
