This week, we took a day and held our annual Allen Tate Spring Convention for 900 of our talented rainmakers – and pushed them out of their comfort zones. “Fascinate” was the theme of this year’s event.
Not only did we learn from each other, but we also brought in talent from around the country. We huddled at the Charlotte Convention Center – with our team coming from both ends of I-85 (Raleigh and Greenville SC) and everywhere in between.
We learned; we laughed; we grew. We challenged each other. We left, kicking our heels, with iPads full of nuggets we can use, professionally and personally.
At our annual lunch program, we each made a financial commitment to the culture fabric in the communities we serve, and to the United Way – the underpinnings of community stability. While the campaign continues for a few more weeks, I am confident that the power of Tate Cares lives on. Every year, we rally around public education; the arts, sciences and history; and United Way organizations. We are proudly doing our part to keep the Carolinas the apple of the eye of the world!
In the midst of our hectic days, my wish for you is this: Take some time to breathe, and fill your spirit with energy, fellowship and memories – the way we were able to do on our own special “Fascinate” day. It makes a difference!
