Jay Dreyer :: Target Rocks...I Do Not.

Target Rocks...I Do Not.

Target logoWednesday was Target’s big, national stores sales meeting where everyone comes  to Minneapolis to learn about what’s planned for the upcoming year. Our group (the tech side) was invited this year to what used to be a stores-only event. I picked up my ticket and had every intention of attending but I had so much work to do I decided to skip it. I worked on test plans and studying process flows. By doing so, I missed the following performances (who knew?):

  • Tony Bennett
  • Elvis Costello
  • Diana Krall
  • kd lang (I think she spells it all lower case)
  • Maroon 5
  • Kenny Chesney

This was not a good move on my part. In my defense, I had no idea Target rolled out the big guns at these events. Now I know and I won’t miss one again.

On a side note, if you’re into community service, Target announced they’re going to increase the amount they give to the community from $2 million a week to $3 million. I work for a very cool company.
