T'was the night before...BILT NA 2017

I said goodbye to my pup this morning at 4am and headed off to the airport. If you have done this before, you’ll know how hard it is to get up that early in the morning, where it’s cozy and quiet and there’s a puppy on your lap.

I was a little nervous about today and tomorrow as the people I've asked about coming to this year's convention are, regrettably, unable to attend. I know this is a great opportunity to meet a whole group of interesting and inspiring people. Even shy people like me have little problem making new friends since everyone here has something in common and are happy to share the excitement. Sure enough as I ride up and down the elevators, my badge of honour (the conference name tag lanyard) sets up conversations. If you see me around the conference, come over and say hi!


As always, these events are held in fantastic accommodations. As I settle into my room, I've been reading over my old RTC event notes. I had forgotten how much the first two conferences have influenced my perspective. It’s not just about Revit, it’s the whole Building Information Modeling (BIM) Process but never forget the end goal, the building for the client.


Ashraf Habibullah, last year’s keynote speaker, was fantastic. He was entertaining with his light up party suitcoat and his talk was also inspiring. I'm sure every structural consultant loved when he stated that they save thousands of lives a year through good structural design, they are heroes. YouTube has his talk posted so when you have time, I encourage to you listen to it. Below, I included the links. I can’t wait to hear this year’s speaker tomorrow.


"Success is moving from one failure to another with more enthusiasm."
