Secondly, I am going to be the end all be all representative for my group at a major review in another country. I only recently started supporting this role within my group and now I am THE man. Its a little bit disconcerting. I really need to make sure I know my stuff for this.
Lastly, I will not really know anyone there. As I said I just started in this aspect of my job recently. I don't know the folks that I am working with all that well as of yet. The good thing about a trip like this is that you do tend to get to know the people your working with better.
All in all it should be a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to it. I get to cross another country off my list of places I've visited in the world. This will be my third European visit now, but my first for a job related trip. So it will be different, but should still be cool.
