The event kicked off with a general assembly where there were many influential speakers. Among these was Anthony Robles, the NCAA 2010-2011 individual wrestling champion. Robles' story was very inspirational for the Atlantic Consutling team to hear. Robles never gave up on his dream of being a wrestling champion, despite being born with one leg. During his speech Robles described his journey and his path of success towards his natioal championship. Not one time during his speech did he complain or even mention the fact that he had a handicap. Robles was determined to reach his goals no matter what challenges his faced. This was very motivating for the Atlantic Consulting team to hear because it ties in with the Atlantic Consultong 'no excuses' mentality.
Following the keynote speaker were several workshops and breakout sessions targeted towards each individual. Account executives found these workshops useful becasue they were able to improve their skills while networking with other professionals in the industry.
Other activities that Atlantic Consulting participated in while in Atlanta included attending an Atlanta Braves baseball game and awards ceremony dinner.
Overall, the conference was a great success. Atlantic Consulting team members were able to set goals for themselves, as well as team goals for the future. The team returned to Chicago feeling refreshed and motivated for what's to come.
