Philadelphia: Ascend Day 2: A Makers Year 37

Day 2 much better than Day 1. Useful information that i will not share, sorry about that, i don’t mean to be rude.   I am sure my competitors are reading this and they didnt pay £2000 to be here, so I will keep what turns out to be quite a lot of good information under my hat.

Lunch however at a table of eight American Alfa Male Marketing Men, One Screechy Woman and a quiet Englishman, gave me a headache.

Glad this is done with. I would come again, but not just for this.
