Trying to get out of town

There must be a secret to getting out of town effortlessly. I have to be in Atlanta for Leadership where I'll be working for tomorrow and I'm leaving tomorrow. Seems like I'm not doing this in the right way as I feel pressed and harried. I need someone to provide tips on how to make this less stressful.

Treat volunteers

Great tip:

As head of a group of volunteers, and the paid consultant, I always take my team out to dinner during days-long promotions. They count on it and keeps them inspired. Naturally, I give out a lot of compliments to the team during these dinners.

They work hard for no money so, at the very least, they should receive a dazzling meal..and I provide it. It's always in a room at a high-end venue and I get staff to set aside space/room for a large group to provide privacy, more opportunity to network and less noise so everyone can hear the "luv."
