My company had it’s annual Legal Conference this past week. I haven’t been with the company for previous retreats, but this one was awesome. We spent three days at Chateau Elan in Braselton, GA. I was a little apprehensive about going. I know lots of the lawyers, but wouldn’t be comfortable with them in a social setting. This year was a joint legal and finance conference so I was hoping there would be some other young people. I wasn’t thinking that this was mostly high level people. I was the youngest person by about 15 years.
Regardless, I had a great time. There were about five speakers – a major investor, a board member, the CEO, and two panels of engineers. I learned a lot about the company and found some people in my department that are a lot of fun! We listened to the speakers for about four hours every day and the rest of the time was free. There is a spa at the hotel so I got a hot stone massage for my leisure activity- now that was relaxing!
The retreat ended at noon on Friday and we were done for the day. I decided to stay at the hotel and use their pool. I miss having a pool – that is the only bad thing about renting a house versus being in an apartment. I did get rid of those pesky strap marks though. Now I am ready for Melissa’s wedding.
