On the Thursday of Pre-conference certification programs for ATD ICE 2015, I was working with my Volunteer Co-Chair to set up the Volunteer Office to be ready for volunteers from around the world, who would be showing up, starting on Saturday. We had about 200 Volunteers registered to assist us.
As Kristina Grant and I were walking the conference center once again to get to some remote location to deliver something or check on our volunteers working in the certification program events, I made an off-handed remark to her.
“We should do a video showing how far of a walk it is from the parking area to the volunteer office.”
Her response was “Really? I don’t want to do that.”
After some convincing that it would be fun, her and I set forth to create the simple video that would make me a viral sensation to our 200 volunteers.
