Dawn Howard: My name is Don Howard. I am the Lighting Specialist for Southeast and Southwest Florida for Ferguson Enterprises.
Why do you go to the American Lighting Association Conference?
Dawn Howard: I I love to come because you really get to talk and spend time with people. There's no competition. It's kind of defenses down
What's your biggest take-away?
Dawn Howard: The table talk was amazing at lunchtime, getting to have all that different perspective from distribution, reps, manufacturers. That was really my biggest takeaway was the table talk and having all those, all of those different perspectives
Tell us a story from a previous conference.
Dawn Howard: Ok, Betsy Alan manning made me cry during her speech.
Dawn Howard: Specifically when she started talking about her dad and how he passed and how close she was to him. And that really resonated with me because I was very close to my dad and my dad was also in lighting and he's the one that really got me into lighting. I'm actually third generation in lighting. My grandfather was as well. So that hit me.
Dawn Howard: I'm going, are you?
