Once again, several members of the NAS team attended the HR Technology Conference & Exposition last week in Las Vegas. We saw lots of familiar faces, met many new people and learned a ton. Here are some of the highlights:

Keynote Address
The keynote address was delivered by Barbara Corcoran, investor and judge on ABC’s Shark Tank, who shared her secrets for success in a highly charged, very personal narrative of her storied career. She shared her five key lessons on building a successful business, which namely involves focusing on the power of your brand. Corcoran was able to build a brand from essentially nothing by pushing boundaries on advertising, thinking outside of the box, keeping employee satisfaction a priority and positioning her business (purposefully or by mistake) as the elite – and it paid off when she sold her company, The Corcoran Group, for an astounding $66 million.

Sponsored by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the event brought several thousand people out to support the cause. There were booths, a food tent and food trucks set up around Wade Oval that we could visit. The ceremony started at 7:15 pm, as we heard stories from survivors and others. As those stories were told, the different groups lit their lanterns and raised them in the air.

First were the yellow lanterns for those who had lost someone. They were followed by the white lanterns for the survivors. Last were the red lanterns, for the supporters. We then all came together raising our lanterns to light up the night. We started the walk at Wade Oval in Cleveland and walked one mile around University Circle. The walk was followed by fireworks to close out the event. 

As a team, NAS raised a total of $1,090 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We look forward to walking again next year!
