The last day of the Reputation Institute's Conference in Rio de Janeiro!

Day 5 !

This year's conference was a tremendous success and everyone enjoyed their time before,
 during and after the meetings! Speaking for myself, I found the speakers very worthwhile
and even added a few facebook friends in the process!

Kristin, enjoyed seeing some old friends living in Rio, presenting a great paper ( modesty
 forbids me from saying who else was on that paper! hee hee!) and playing tourist,
sight seer and meeting new friends!

Next year, the Reputation Institute will be in New Orleans and I know it will be another
in a great line of wonderfully educational and social conferences!

See You in New Orleans!



Guy, me and Daniela waiting for tapas!

( Much like its Spanish counterpart, Brazilian
 tapas come in small, tasting plates and
include ingredients such as salads, chicken
 livers, mandioc, potatoes and sausage. )

Why the Beads???

Well, next year the conference will be in
New Orleans!!

Will you join us there?


Bringing in the drum line at the end of the Reputation Institutes Conference!



Beautiful Ipanema Beach!

Surf's Up on
Ipanema Beach, Big Kahuna!

Hiking out to 'the point'

"Wax on, Wax Off!"

Who could resist 'doing the crane'
defensive posture?


Here I am enjoying out little hike around
Ipanema Beach!

 High tide with Sugar Loaf in the distance!
