A few quick notes:
Note 1: Some research recently revealed that involvement in social media is a good thing for CEOs (phew!). One of the findings had to do with the benefits of CEOs tweeting. That is also supposed to be a good thing. While I will probably stick with this blog, I am asking the readers for their nominations for whose tweets (if anyone’s) at Royal Caribbean International they would follow given the opportunity.
Note 2: In March the Florida State Legislature passed a law to raise awareness of the dangers of concussions in youth and scholastic sports and to promulgate rules for when an athlete needs to be removed from play and when the athlete may return to play. My family was intensely involved in this effort over the last 18 months in partnership with the NFL and we are extremely pleased that we achieved our goal on the second attempt. Our bill sponsors Senator Anitere Flores and Rep. Ronald (“Doc”) Renuart led the charge for us in their respective chambers. I am very proud of my son David for his willingness to tell the story of his soccer-related concussions in a compelling way and also of my wife Cheryl for discovering her inner lobbyist. We are just waiting for Governor Scott to sign the legislation.
Note 3: Very intense training going on for the Corporate Run 5k later this month. More to follow.
