WELCOME @SEATconference

Welcome to the middle of summer in the USA and in Scottsdale, Arizona where the SEAT HQ offices are, we have reached 120 degrees Fahrenheit this summer...but.."its a dry heat, and not really all that bad!"

Seriously , it's not as bad as it sounds!

David Payne, Senior Technology Strategist for the Athletics Department at University of Oklahoma and one of the SEAT Executive Advisory Board Members, was vacationing in Arizona recently and stopped by our offices to say hello.

As David and I began to chat and just catchup on life changes, the upcoming conference and more, the SEAT marketing team decided to roll the video cameras for a spontaneous one to one video chat between David & I. We had a great time and you can see the video on our website or on the SEAT YouTube channel!

But it did not stop there, Dallas and Taylor, part of the SEAT Marketing Team then asked David to do a SEAT Daily Update video for us to share on the SEAT social media networks.


During our impromptu video chat we talked about how SEAT has evolved since 2006 and how many deep friendships we have developed across the World, specifically because of how SEAT has brought us all together.

These memories and conversations fill my heart with so much love and passion for our "SEAT Community."

We welcome everyone from the SEAT Community including our Sponsors, to drop by our SEAT office to say hello! But, be ready to be on camera as our Guest Super Star for a SEAT Daily Update ...we always have something fun ready for our guests!

David was amazing and gracious and laughed along with us!

David has been a long-time friend of mine, since we hosted the first version of SEAT together in 2006 in Arizona.
