This is me posing with my custom made Lululemon control vinyl just before getting started on Day 1 of the Leadership Conference. 

Day one (October 6, 2015) of my duties at the 2015 Lululemon Leadership conference began with a 5:30 a.m. wake up call, getting dressed, hopping in a cab and making my way from my hotel to the conference hotel. I was scheduled to play four sets throughout the day: breakfast, lunch and two additional short afternoon breaks.

First Set (Breakfast): Consisted of mostly varying sub genres of house music; attendees were either coming directly from their rooms or from their morning “sweat” sessions, which was either a spin or yoga class. One of the company mantra’s is “sweat once a day,” and that even includes at their conference.

This is what 1,000 people looks like as they exit their general session. At least they had some fun beats to walk along to. 

Second Set (Lunch): The foyer I DJ’d in all week was directly outside of the main general session ballroom where all 1,000 attendees assembled. Each time they exited was essentially a break, so I made sure the first song, for whichever genre I was playing for that set, was something upbeat and recognizable.

So yes, the 80s Pop set kicked off with Tears for Fears.

  • Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants to Rule the World
  • Pet Shop Boys - Domino Dancing (Edge Remix)
  • Fine Young Cannibals - She Drives Me Crazy (Select Mix Remix)

  • Deniece Williams - Let's Hear It For The Boy (Select Mix Remix)
  • Pat Benatar - Hit Me With Your Best Shot (Select Mix Remix)
  • Bon Jovi - You Give Love A Bad Name (Select Mix Remix)
  • Prince - Raspberry Beret
  • OMD - If You Leave

Third Set (Early afternoon break): This was essentially the set I was anticipating all day, and I think the attendees were too. How could one not start to dance and sing after sitting for a couple of hours and then spilling into a room that is echoing with 90s Mariah Carey?

Fourth Set (Afternoon Break 2): The last set, of the first day, was a short and open format of anything from 2000 to 2015. When’s the last time you heard 2005 JoJo?
