#ISM2017: Twitter's All Ears
The #ISM2017 hashtag got colorful use on Twitter during the second full day at the Annual Conference at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Attendees on Tuesday posted their thoughts on a compelling keynote address, saluted the recipient of the supply management profession's highest honor and took advantage of the extracurricular activities offered by the Conference site.
David Cameron, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, began his keynote in somber fashion, paying respects to the victims of Monday's bombing in Manchester, England, that left 22 dead and injured dozens of others. "It's great to be with you in Orlando, but you will understand me when I say that my heart is with Manchester," Cameron said. He went on to discuss today's global geopolitical climate and advocated for social responsibility.
David Cameron: "The idea that CSR is an 'add on' is a complete fiction". Well said sir.@David_Cameron #ISM2017— Spend Maverick (@SupplyMatters) May 23, 2017
David Cameron: when I learned that I was coming to Disney, I wondered which Donald you were wanting me to talk about." #ISM2017— Julie Heins (@julie_heins) May 23, 2017

Tom Slaight, former senior partner at A.T. Kearney, received the 2017 J. Shipman Gold Medal Award, securing his place among elite supply management professionals. Perhaps one of the six R. Gene Richter Scholars who were also honored on Tuesday will join Slaight someday.

Whoever thought of the wall mural with names of Certified Professional in Supply Management® (CPSM®) recipients might have come up with the most ingenious new Conference feature.

Lastly, we're still, uh, working to confirm the authenticity of this photo. For now, let's just say you never know who you will run into at an ISM Annual Conference.
