I’m back home after spending the weekend in Chicago. Saturday was acclimatization, sight-seeing and meeting some people there for ABA Techshow, Sunday as a participant in LexThink! Chicago.
LexThink! is a new annual (we hope) conference organized by Matt Homann, Dennis Kennedy and Sherry Fowler around the idea of building the perfect professional services firm. 49 bright, enthusiastic, focussed, smart, tech-savvy service-oriented professionals from all walks of life. Oh, and me too. :)
And here was my #1 takeaway – if only 1% of people out there in these walks of life are like my new LexThink friends, we are on the edge of an IT-driven revolution in professional services businesses. Just watch them go.
Thanks, Matt, Dennis and Sherry. What a brilliant experience. New friends, new ideas, new passions, new hope.
And to close, Matt Buchanan’s stream-of-consciousness take on Techshow and LexThink!, which I agree with 100%:
Wow. Amazing. People who â€œget it.â€ Revolution(?). Fun. Mark calendar every year. Tips. Contacts. 3:00 AM. Energized. Proud. Friends. Like-minded people. What took me so long to find this group (billable hours?). Change. Change. Change. Better. Client. Focus. Improvement. Competitive advantage. Rethink(ip). Connect. Blog. Blawg. Evangelism. Pope. Iâ€™m not crazy. Future. Network. Help. Practice-changing. Support. Life-changing. Tired. Interesting. Whatâ€™s next? Define it. It. Thought leader. Goals. Inspiring.
