So here we are trying to put our best feet forward with this group blog and be serious about the topics on the minds of marketers today. As part of that, we thought we should all have pictures for our profile that are somewhat uniform and vaguely professional. We scheduled with one of our photographers and violá! got new profile pictures for Deb, Justin and myself while we were together at SAS Global Forum in Seattle. Our other contributors already had suitable photos, so the three if us needed to get cracking.
And it’s not clear whether it was the thousands of terrific SAS Users and Executives in one place at one time, the cool Twitter wall, the great coffee, the views of Puget Sound, the lush greenery, or just the general je-ne-sais-coolness of Seattle, or what. But it brought out lots of positive emotions, including our silly side – which were caught in a few candid shots. So we thought we’d share them for your enjoyment.
We got a good chuckle imagining using these as our profile pictures, or occasionally swapping them out. Along the way, we have gotten some feedback that we should not be afraid to show our fun side. So take a look and let us know what you think – should we be all serious all the time or should we mix it up?
