I just got an email from Kevin. He is back at the Remarkable House after a whirl-wind trip to Jordan, where he presented leadership training. He posted a few pictures of his trip on his Facebook fan page, and I will be pestering him for more.
The whole team is excited to hear more about Kevin's adventure and the amazing people he met there.
For today's Friday cheers, I want to celebrate our friends far and near.
Tuesday afternoon, while I sat at my desk working, I started to see some tweets from folks in Jordan who had been attending Kevin's training. I love how Twitter makes the world suddenly smaller. In my office, I felt myself transported to Jordan.
Some of these tweets came from @LaraAbbasi, a leader in the retail pharmacy business in the Middle East. She shared tweets during Kevin's presentation.
So, our first cheers this Friday go out to Lara @LaraAbbasi, and others who tweeted from Kevin's Leadership Forum event in Jordan: @LeenHammad, @NidalBitar, and @abbassimajd. Follow them all. They are remarkable leaders who want to make a difference.
Next, we want to celebrate Susan Guarneri. She helped us #buildthebuzz during our launch by hosting a guest post on her blog. Now she is helping us continue the buzz. She arranged for Kevin to be a guest in William Arruda's Personal Branding Interview Series. Be sure to register for the call! You can get to know Susan at her blog or follow her on Twitter.
Finally, another new friend: Amy Diederich. Amy is new to social media, so I hope you will join me in giving her a warm welcome. Amy has been building the buzz by recommended From Bud to Boss to her clients who are going through leadership transitions. We appreciate Amy getting involved with sharing the message about our book and community. You can follow Amy on Twitter and check out her blog and website. Amy is business partners with Jane Perdue, who has also been an amazing help as we have been seeking to #buildthebuzz.
That's all for now. We appreciate our friends, fans, and followers, near and far, who are helping us continue the the buzz! Have a great weekend!
