Who’s sitting next to you?

WHO DAVE SWANSON 53 / President, Competitive Intelligence Advertising

WHY I’M TRAVELING My company has model railroad clients, so I’m going to L.A. for a trade show. But I’m also into model railroads myself. I’ve probably got about four hundred at home.

I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT… My laptop. It’s my universal device. I use it for work. I use it for entertainment. I use it as a clock. I put books on it to read. I’ll watch a video in one corner of the screen and work in the other. Sometimes it’s the only thing I take with me on trips.

BUSINESS AND PLEASURE If I’m going someplace for business, I’ll also take a personal day or two. I’m at the stage in my life when I might as well enjoy it. So I’ve stopped flying redeyes, and I always make sure I have time to really enjoy a new city.

    just spoke to Randy, asked him how you were and if you are still traveling the world?

    we have submitted a proposial to host NMRA in 2014. We hope to have your support. Of course we would love to work with you and Randy again so please keep us in mind.

    Safe travels!
