A group of dedicated HeSCAn’s are gathering in Providence, Rhode Island for the start of a fabulous annual meeting.

Our first day saw a strong focus on social media best practices and how to best realize a strong ROI from your social media investments.  After all… it’s not just for socializing anymore.  It’s a valuable business tool!

The cartooning workshop proved there is a creative streak where you least expect it.

And the evening networking event showcased our competitive sides.  Congratulations to the Red team for winning the team building challenge!
