For those of you who were not present , the reason is that when I was 9 years old , I used to live in Denver and my dad use to clean office spaces and also a caterer and from time to time I used to accompany him and help him in cleaning places and delivering food , and I used to dream of being the persons who were in this place speaking and having it’s food delivered , instead of being there on cleanup crew.
I had always wondered back then what they were doing and what was so important that we had to deliver this very cool, and sometimes very good food to them.
I later on left Denver and went back to México and grew and studied there, but those thoughts actually never left my mind, so when I was invited back to speak in Denver to Collaborate back in 2013 , it was a dream come true.
This year , when I was invited back to Denver it wasn’t any less special , as this year I became the first person who went from being an Oracle ACE Associate, which was an arduous award to receive, to an Oracle ACE, and it was here in Denver where I was handed , at the Oracle ACE Dinner , my award. I can’t express the joy and satisfaction that I currently have at this moment, and even not ashamed to say that as I’m writing this, I have tears of joy blurring my eyes, but I can only say that “La macchina va dove vanno gli occhi”
P.S. – So if you see me today not wearing a tie, it’s because I am wearing my ACE fleece 🙂
