I got this in an e-mail the other day:
"On Monday, May 12, from 8:15-9:15, the [organization] will host a Breakfast for Journalists in the Private Dining Room on the first floor of the [hotel]. It will be an excellent opportunity for you to connect one-on-one with keynote, plenary, and special session speakers at the [conference]."
Can I just say? Nothing that happens at 8:15 on a Monday morning is a good opportunity to connect with anyone.
