Marrying Cybersecurity & Meetings
You know what's awesome about being old? No, seriously, stay with me here. What's awesome about being old and established is that people come to you. After many years, I no longer have to go out beating the grass trying to find opportunities. I have been around so long that really awesome, cool opportunities find me. Like this one!
A very smart woman who I used to work with, Kristin Lamoureux, called me up one day recently and said, "Hey, we (she works for Virginia Tech) want to do this really in-depth certificate program on cybersecurity, safety, and risk management for meeting and event professionals, what do you think?" And I said, "Why hasn't anyone done this before? It's brilliant!" So now the certificate program is planned and I get to be a part of it. Yay me!
It's really in-depth, five all-day courses on various aspects of this super-important topic. All delivered on Virginia Tech's satellite campus in Arlington, VA. Now lest you think this is an ad for same, I get paid the same whether 1 person registers or 1000. I'm an educator, I just get excited about good education. And Virginia Tech has nailed this one.
Dig it, I'm part of course 3 (and course 4). Come see all 5'2" of me battle for stage time with alpha males if nothing else. It's sure to be entertaining. :-) For those of you who really know me...I'll be putting away my true introvert and channeling my Xena, Warrior Princess.
Hope to see you there!
