blurring the lines

i'm headed to a little Ozark retreat with some folks from Barkley today to blur the lines. Barkley started sending a smattering of its employees - from all disciplines - to the Ozarks a few years ago. each time collaboration is king and ideas come from everywhere to address specific "assignments" launched on day one and presented on day four.

i didn't get a chance to go when I was previously at Barkley, so i'm absolutely stoked to head out today. this is just one of a number of efforts Barkley offers to inspire its employees and keep fresh thinking front of mind. can't wait.

according to Ozark legend (now would be the time to cue the Deliverance music), we work and play pretty darn hard - not sure i'll have a chance to update WoolardSpeak while there. but i'm sure i'll have some thoughts to share once i return.

Risley has a good recap from his time in the MoSouth here.

You'll have a great time. Here's one tidbit of wisdom from my Ozarks trip: 3 cans of Red Bull in a 24-hour period is too many.

Sounds like you're very glad you're at Barkley. I am pleased.

This Ozark get-together sounds like my future MA programme. Wanna compare notes? I like being teacher's pet.
