What 15 Years in Business Means to Us
This month, GDA Speakers is celebrating its 15 year anniversary. The saying 'time flies when you're having fun' seems so fitting as we hit this milestone.  Since opening our inboxes and phone lines in 1999, with one employee and one speaker, not a day has passed where it felt like 'work'.  Creating unforgettable experiences for our audiences is what we truly enjoy.  Our partnerships and friendships over the years have meant the world to us and for that, we thank you. We know none of this would be possible without you.
Over the last two and a half weeks, we counted down to our anniversary with highlights from each year of business. The countdown ended with the unveiling of our new team photo.  GDA also introduced our event manager, Lauren Schreder. We had such a great time looking through the old pictures and reliving memories.  If you missed our countdown, click on the following hashtag, #GDAturns15, to see our 15 year journey. Here is to another 15 years!
Gail's Blog: Celebrating 15 Years With HR Houston
I spent yesterday at the 2014 Gulf Coast Symposium on HR Issues.  It was a perfect place to be as I reflect on the past 15 years of business.  HR Houston became a client in 2002 and I have booked their speakers every year since then.  It has been so rewarding to have a client for 12 years and watch their conference grow from 200 to over 1800 human resource professionals.

This year was really amazing.  I loved their theme, Infinite Possibilities.  I knew I was not missing this year's event once I saw this clever video promoting the conference.  The video is worth the watch...
