Gleek Retreat 2011 was all about building relationship for me. I got to see familiar faces and meet new ones that I had yet to meet in real life.
Gleek Retreat 2011 was located smack dab in downtown Holland, MI at the Haworth Inn & Conference Center. It was great being able to be within walking distance of great restaurants and fun shopping!
We started the weekend off right with a delectable dinner at CityVu Bistro which is located on the top floor of the CityFlats Hotel in downtown Holland. The food was delicious and the company was even better! I had the seared tuna which practically melted in my mouth!
I suggest visiting Kilwin’s if you want your mouth to be pleasured! Kilwin’s has tasty homemade fudge, hand dipped treats or creamy ice cream. I brought treats home for the entire family and they enjoyed every bite. Pure delish!
Gleek Retreat had a great offering of speakers with great topics such as Engaging Your Readers, Running Group & Collaborative Blogs and Organizing Your Blogging Life, to name a few of my favorites. The speakers were great picks and I had some great takeaways that I have already started implementing.
All in all, it was a small and intimate conference, very low key with wonder bloggers. I did a little recruiting into my Social Fabric community, got some of our existing community members reengaged and met some members that I had not met face to face yet.
