Thank you Patsy Cline. Your music will live on forever. However, Ward's welcome at the Venetian in Las Vegas came to an abrupt end as he was unceremoniously escorted out the Starbucks in the Venetian by LVPD and hotel security. Really? Have you met Ward? According to Ward's count, there were seven officers sent to march him out to the curb. More on that in this episode. Much more on THAT.

As a hobby, Larry designs and crafts beautiful pens from dead trees. One of the pens he gifted at the The Vegas Collaboration Zone was to our friend William Tincup, president of RecruitingDaily.

Peter Clayton attended Josh Bersin's keynote at #InfluenceHR - thank you Bret Starr for the press pass!

And Peter participated Jim Jensen's Vegas Collaboration Zone roundtable on "How to Partner with the Big Guys."  Jim is SVP Global Partners & Alliances at Ceridian.

Clayton attended SAP SuccessFactor's #successconnect conference at the Aria and met lots of friends, partners and amazing people. I'll give you some insights this week and next, and plan on having a number of the #successconnect participants on TotalPicture, including Jason Chapman, VP Global Strategy at SAP.

Congratulations to Patricia Manos Director of Partnerships and Alliances at Scout - she's expecting her first baby on December 31st. My first baby, Erin Clayton, was married on September 7th in Aurora New York. And that was truly amazing, wonderful, and yes... crazy.

Welcome to episode #17 of the HR Tech Collaboration News Podcast, AKA BBOP (Build Buy or Partner?)  It's a Double album/Crazy edition of BBOP, featuring the 3 C's: Larry Cummings, Ward Christman, and I'm you host Peter Clayton.

Peter Clayton - I started my podcast, TotalPicture,  in 2005 - pre-iPhone, pre- anyone knowing what a podcast was. I'm senior Producer/Director at  TotalPicture Media, a production boutique focused on the Future of Work. My expertise is in video and podcast production. I attend many premier industry conferences throughout the year, and partner with event producers, sponsors and exhibitors to create compelling, world-class content.



That's a wrap.  If you've made it this far you know my podcast partner Ward Christman was escorted from the Venetian last Thursday by police and hotel security at a directive from LRP. Not only was he booted from the HR Tech hotel, he is banned for life at the Venetian and associated properties, including the Sands Convention Center and the Palazzo. Apparently, LRP considers Ward a competitor. As with any event organizer LRP has the right to refuse admission to anyone they choose, and the right to remove anyone at anytime from their expo hall or conference. However, I find removing Ward from the Starbucks in the Venetian extreme and unjustified. I can tell you that during UNLEASH America at the Aria last spring, Fred Hurst and Steve Boese spent two days at the Starbucks in the Aria pitching UNLEASH's customers. I'm sharing this information from a very reliable and credible source.  Ward would love to hear your thoughts on this. You'll find a link to an open letter Ward has written regarding his removal from the Venetian on the show page of this podcast.
