Long after the conference has concluded, it's the connections that continue

Social Media Marketing World Networking Keynote

I had the honor of serving as a conference networking ambassador for Social Media Marketing World for the third year in a row.

We added a lot of extras into this years conference when it came to helping the attendees make connections.  One of the big changes was having me do a keynote talking about some great ways to connect at the conference.  I managed to get a copy of the talk for your viewing pleasure.

The video below is about 15 minutes short but I think it’s worth watching.

I really had fun and spoke to many of the things that get in the way of people making great connections, including what to do when you feel you have nothing to offer the person you are talking to.

Pop Quiz: Can you tell me the stage name of the poet I name at the beginning of my talk?

I hope you enjoyed the video.

Don’t forget to grab a FREE copy of The conference networking report for even more great tips on how to create an environment conducive to making great connections.
