Dateline: Everest

Here's a riddle: What do Montreal's Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel and Convene's June issue have in common?

Answer: Both will showcase adventurer Jamie Clarke, who recorded the following message to PCMA Education Conference attendees (which is being held at the aforementioned hotel) while at his Mount Everest base camp. Education Conference attendees will of course hear more first-hand about his climb, as Jamie will be speaking on the topic, "What is YOUR Everest?"

Not only did Jamie record this message for PCMA members and EduCon attendees, he also took time out of preparing for his climb to answer questions for Convene's new "Frame of Mind" series from Ray Kopcinski, CMP, director of meeting services for Million Dollar Round Table, who is himself an avid mountaineer (and who, in turn, was interviewed by Convene Editor in Chief Michelle Russell in our May issue).

But the "Frame of Mind," that's in our June issue, which should arrive in your mailbox in a few short weeks. Until then, good luck, Jamie!
