This year's Tyson SalesCon23 was another great event. This years event's theme was Winning on Purpose with a Michael Jordan sports theme, specifically with the footwear of the speakers. The first day ended with a celebration at Top Golf for associates with a special party for the new hire associates. Believe it or not, this was my first time in Top Golf, even though I live only 2 miles away, it made me wish I was more, or at all, into golf, it looked really fun. Wednesday ended with a talk from John Tyson along with Q&A and dinner afterwards. Thursday featured a banquet with fun entertainment from some of the favorite movies we all know and love. Some of the associates really were brave and put on a great and entertaining show, they really put a lot of work and planning into this.
While photographing the general sessions, I get the chance to hear the speakers. These are speakers like CEO Donnie King, Chairman of the Board John Tyson and CCO Jason Nickol to name a few. Their words of motivation and instruction for the ideals and basis of Tyson and how they appreciate and interact with their clients. While this is a global corporation, the principles can be applicable to a small business such as mine. There are many thoughts they gave that I took away, just another benefit and perk of being a photographer.
It's no news that many Tyson associates are moving into NW Arkansas. It was very obvious, photographing over 350 headshots in 8 hours, that is a new record. Thousands of images were delivered from the general sessions meetings. As always, it was a pleasure photographing the event, everyone is always super nice to work with and photograph.
