Packing My Bags For Stockholm

As you know, I travel quite a bit and I thought it would be fun for you to see some of my routine preparation and packing.  By the time you read this, I will be in Stockholm, Sweden.  The purpose of the journey is to attend the annual Bonnier GRID media conference.  GRID was launched in 2008, bringing together 250 exciting and passionate people from Bonnier companies around the globe for a two-day summit of idea-sharing.  This year, I was asked to be one of the speakers, an exciting list that includes media entrepreneurs, best-selling writers, professors, political hot shots, scientists, humanitarians, artists, musicians, and a magician. The theme this year is “It’s All About Passion,” a subject very dear to me.  Other speakers include wildly successful Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert and Alec Ross, Senior Advisor on Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  I hope to share a bit of Sweden with you soon.
