Yesterday I was at a luncheon for Ireland's Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar at the Chiluly garden and glass. http://chihulygardenandglass.com
At my table was Microsoft and Amazon. And next on the Taoiseach was Menlo Park.
When looking at where the Taoiseach went his list comprised the GAFAM - Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft.

As one of the attendees to the Seattle event said I don't know why I am here, but must be because I am Irish. I think I snuck in because they saw my name and thought i was Irish.
There was many more little things I learned from the event, but given I didn't disclose I would write about anything I don't have permission to say more than above. Maybe next time I go to a Taoiseach event I will attend under a media role and I have been granted permission and what is shared is "on the record."
