Speaker Cindy Rodriguez had barely started when alarm bells and “evacuate this room” voices started going off. Journalists! nobody moved! After a minute or so someone (who?) came in and said “Ignore it”.
Turned out the TJ Maxx convention was setting up for a fashion show in the the next meeting room. A smoke machine wreaked a little havoc.
Congrats to Cindy for hanging in there. I would have been in meltdown.
