April 26th was Day 1. I began from New Hampshire, the home of my six-month-old granddaughter and the last resting place of my bike from last year. My first stop was Connecticut for a UTC Aerospace Systems Executive Briefing, which was very insightful.
Day 2 had me travel back to Boston for a week of consulting at Medtronic/Covidien. It is cold. Too cold. If not for the glory of the thing, I would have rented a car.
Stops I’m visiting:
- May 4 – Mattel at East Aurora, New York
- May 5 – Uber ATC at Pittsburgh, PA
- May 7 – Forrester Breakfast at Detroit
- May 8 – AbbVie at North Chicago
- May 11 – Covidien Surgical at Boulder, CO
I plan to continue from Colorado to the West Coast and plan on stops to:
- Intel at Phoenix
- Align at San Jose
- Wind River at Alameda
One of the most interesting parts of each tour year over year, is that I ride far shorter and shorter distances to visit prospects and customers, and I get to visit the customers now that were tour prospects in former years.
