I was thrilled to meet her. She really busted her butt at that convention. I cant immagine trying to run something so huge. Kudos to Downey.  The speakers were great, the atmosphere and freindlyness of all who partisipated was fantastic. The comedians and Greydon Square were awsome. 

Success is an understatement. It went way beyond my expectations.

I didn't attend the conference because I waited too late to get a ticket. I did however , watch most of it on the streaming thingy. Margaret worked very hard on the conference and diserves recognition.

What's the problem!!!

Margaret Downey was

Margaret Downey was amazing.  Although she didn't know me, and to her I was just another person in the crowd, I had three encounters with her during the convention and on each occasion she made me feel welcome and made sure that I was getting along fine.  It wasn't as if I had a problem and had to come seeking her, each time it was her checking on me to see how I was doing.
On one occasion, I had arrived a little late for the awards banquet and found the first overflow room filled (I had a red dot on my name tag).  I stepped back into the hall to make my way to the other overflow room and she happened to be right there.  She quickly assessed the situation and proceeded to escort me into the main ballroom to take a seat at a table there.  She made me feel like a VIP.
In each encounter, and despite the unexpectedly high turn-out, she seemed cool, collected, and competent.  She was reassuring, warm, and professional.  It was almost like having a real guardian angel overseeing the event. 

She has my enthusiastic recommendation and endorsement to manage anything, anywhere, at anytime.
