The spirit of generosity not scarcity was never more in evidence than at the Nellie Cashman Award dinner. Everybody was networking like crazy, passing out business cards, setting appointments, and cheering each other on. Anne-Marie Faiola won this year. She’s the owner/founder of BrambleBerry.
As last year’s winner of the WBO Excellence Award, I announced the winner. I walked to podium, made a few clever comments, and asked for “the envelope, please.” Oooppps—no envelope! And I had really practiced that phrase. It was hilarious as people searched for the envelope! And , I had no good joke up my sleeve.
