Tuesday Talk with Kelly Burke

Back to Blog

Pump the brakes! Is it really June? The first half of the year has completely flown by as we’ve been busy getting sfBIG back on track. It has been a collaborative effort to get us to this point and we are excited to say that we are 10 days away from our first social event of the year. I’m not gonna lie, it’s been challenging. We’ve had to change directions repeatedly because of covid rearing its ugly head again and again. But we simply decided to make it happen. It is time to be social again, time to start embracing everything our industry has to offer outside of the “home office”. There are countless smart, interesting, and fun people in our industry, come out and see for yourself.

Following this happy hour, we will have a steady stream of events, giving everyone the opportunity to learn, share, network, and have some fun. We will be updating the calendar of events on the website as soon as we lock in the dates. Spoiler alert, there will be more happy hours, content breakfasts, content after dark, our annual golf tournament and more. It may take a bit of internal convincing to get yourself out and about. We encourage you to rip off that band-aid, it is time.

Shout out to our sponsor dailymotion for making the vision for our first event a reality. It is the support of our sponsors that allows us to build and shape our community and we are grateful.

Join us on June 23rd at the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant for our happy hour. Make it happen!

Kelly’s Favorite Durhamism

1861 – No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude. Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.
