The recent CWD Family Support Weekend I attended had about three-hundred people, plus the volunteer staff. While much smaller than the giant Friends For Life conferences, 300+some is still a BUNCH of people.
It took me at least three or four introductions, plus a nametag, before I could remember people’s names and faces. Even with that, I can only remember a fraction of everyone I met there.
It blew me away how Jeff & Laura knew everyone’s names. I mentioned that to one of the other people down there and they said that not only do they know people’s names, but they will often ask about extended family members and/or pets! And to take it to another level, they do that at Friends For Life – their biggest conference boasting over three-thousand people.
I don’t know how they do it.
