The Green light went for the Mavericks event went on at the end of Feb 2013.
Luckily for myself, I had been asked to fly over for a Motivational talk for 1000 execs at the Hilton, in San Francisco, so I could kill two birds with one stone.
The Mavs event ended up being really small- 12-15ft(30ft faces), which was nothing like 2010, or what we were expecting, but I ended up making the Semi’s and finishing up a respectable 6th place, after breaking my leash and loosing my board in the semi’s, so only having time for 1 wave, but I was happy…
I wasnt expecting more than this and the main reason I was there was to deliver a keynote Motivational talk for a huge audience for the Southern Wines group- Best of the Best Function, which was a huge success, with fantastic feedback, while meeting a great bunch of key people in the USA, which was an added bonus.
The event was awesome, the audience itself was inspiring and delivering a talk for such a huge audience of influential people at the Hilton was amazing and a truly lifting and awe inspiring experience.
Many thanks to Steve & Terri Lee & Steve Harden, for such an amazing opportunity and great experience, with such authentic people.
