Welcome back! To learn more about Atlantic Solutions team leader Hassan Wehbeh’s career-shaping weekend in Los Angeles, California at the Top Gun conference, check out the finale of our interview below:
What was your favorite part of the event?
Definitely meeting all of the “Top Gunners,” and just connecting with them. Top Gun picks the top guys from companies in the United States. Depending on the size of the company, they can pick one, two, or three people. We have a pretty big office, so they picked three from our office: Nick, James, and me. People are chosen according to the quality of their work and the production that they bring.
Can you describe the schedules of the days you were there?
We were treated like rockstars! An entrepreneur named Julie set up everything: breakfast, lunch, dinner, fun, social, bars and nightlife, everything. It was a blast. Everything was paid for! On the first day, we had dinner with Julie and all of the other Top Gun people. So we got to hang out with the top crew of the organization and connect with each other. The next day we had a full day, we woke up at 5:00, left the hotel at 5:45 and we got to the client broker’s office at 7 am, where we had breakfast. After that, we headed to the location and they had a set list for us of what we were going to do, who we were going to talk to, and all of the workshops. The client broker’s team spoke on what they think about us. They knew each one of us and our background! They were very knowledgeable about who we were. They would ask what our names were and we’d tell them and they’d say, “Oh you’re awesome for all these reasons.” They were open to hearing what we think about them, and how we think they can get better because at the end of the day their system is based on us. The more we grow, the faster they grow.
We sat with our client broker’s CEO, I finally got to meet him! He’s a legend in our office, everyone talks about him. After that, we went to dinner and then we went to a rooftop bar. There was even bottle service! Our flight wasn’t until the evening on Saturday so they set up a full day for us. We went to the beach and rode bikes on the boardwalk and then we went on a tour of all of the celebrities’ houses. After that, we had all you can eat sushi which put us in a food coma. Then we went back to the hotel and got ready to head back.
Congratulations to Hassan and the other two Atlantic Solutions team leaders picked, we’ll keep an eye out for all of your future achievements!
