It is the day after INTERSECT16 and it feels very much like the slight melancholy of December 26th. You feel amazing about the past few days, you feel proud of bringing the family together, you feel thankful for all the great people in your life, you feel concern that they make it home safe. You honestly feel a bit of relief that your labor of love gets to take a break and you feel anticipation for next year. So, why do I feel this way after INTERSECT?

Because with GRIDSMART it is all about family from all over the country and all over the world. It is about me having the privilege to work with employees, business partners and end customers who truly care about doing the right thing, who care about their neighbors. Good and Fair People who want to make a million lives better through technology. That happens to be with GRIDSMART Technology.

It is more than a business for us, it is more than a job for our customers, it is about making the world better for our neighbors. This year we all learned from ITS Super Stars Kirk Steudle, Carlos Braceras, Randy Iwasaki, Regina Hopper and Paul Brubaker.  We shared case studies from around the world, got continuing education credits and we all welcomed Daniel Benhammou and Acyclica to the GRIDSMART family.  Who doesn’t love new arrivals to the family at the holidays?

And, did you see the press love for INTERSECT?

So, what is the call to action for this post? Love and applicate those around you. Join us in serving others to make the world a safer and better place. Always give more than you have too. And get ready for INTERSECT17……It is going to be EPIC….again. Yes, the melancholy is fading; time to get to work!

Let me not forget, congratulations and thanks to Tim Smith for being named the Ultimate GRIDSMART Man of 2016.
