Angus: Shannon will be a little late for class

One of the interesting traits of speaking at conferences is that people regularly arrive late. Once in a while, in mid-speaking-breath, I will loudly point out that the latecomer is late. Usually, I ask if they have a note from their mother, and everyone gets a good chuckle.

At the COMMON Annual Conference in Orlando, I was talking with a group at an evening event, and someone brought Shannon over to talk with me. Seems like she was one of my ‘late’ victims at the last conference. Her response was to prepare a little better for this conference, and in case she became a repeat offender, she brought this note..

I am still laughing. Thanks Shannon!

Shannon's excuse

We’re you the one in the First-Timers session who told people if they were in a session that was too easy or too hard to feel free to leave and go to another one? ๐Ÿ˜‰
