Engage!10 Day 1: A Look Back

At the beginning of October I had the opportunity to attend Engage!10: The Breakers. I posted a few video recaps in a previous post and wanted to share some photos now. Engage!10 was put on by Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce of Engaging Concepts and it was hosted by The Breakers Palm Beach.  The Breakers served as the perfect backdrop to  3 days of inspiring speakers, new friendships and over the top parties. 

My mom travelled with me and attended the “parties” portion of Engage.  She has been such a huge support to me over the years and has helped set-up and tear down many events with me.  I thought it fitting to bring her along to experience the magic of Engage.  We were greeted with such a warm reception from The Breakers, Rebecca, Kathryn and the other attendees.  From meeting in the airplane (Pauline Parry of Good Gracious Events and I sat next to each other on the plane, she is so much fun) to registration and through to our departure we were welcomed, pampered and felt completely spoiled.  Thank you!

The photos above are are a mix of registration and the welcome sessions including: my welcome packet, the infamous swag bag (it was awesome), The Breakers Welcome Lounge with towers of white dendrobium orchids, pink limeade and pink & green cupcakes, our welcome session with suggestions from previous Engage attendees and a motivating & challenging talk from Simon T. Bailey.  The room was beautiful.

I had just enough time to relax a bit before grabbing my mom and heading to the Welcome Party held between the pools by the beach.

The palm trees had pink and green uplights, we posed on the pink carpet, drank blended mojitos, snapped photos with new friends, kicked back on crazy cool furniture, oohed and ahhed over funky floral pieces and even did a little dancing.  It was a great way to kick off the event.  More photos to come this week!
