|Qualatex Event Puerto Rico Event Hotel... yes, it's true!|
Christopher Columbus discovered Puerto Rico in 1493, and the name Puerto Rico actually means 'Rich Port', due to it's worth as an important sea port... today Puerto Rico has many claims to fame including being the rum capital of the world and home to the worlds largest radio telescope along with being adorned with the most beautiful flora and forna and some incredible creatures such as the 'Coqui', a tiny tree frog and the endangered Leatherback Sea Turtles! Thank you Benny Nieves for my final evening guided tour and history lesson, it was just perfect!
|Robbie Furman 'helping' with the CBA exam process!|
The event started with a full day of CBA assessments! We had so many people (which was fantastic) who wanted to take their assessment at the event that we had to run 2 separate sessions. So I would like to say a huge thank you to Coral Ojeda, Globos Qualatex de Pioneer and Robbie Furman CBA who worked very hard with me, and I am very pleased to report that we now have 20 new CBA's in Puerto Rico! Congratulations to you all!
