Thanks to those of you who’ve completed our survey about the fall conference. (We’ve heard from about a third of you so far.) Lots of great feedback, including some excellent suggestions for what we can do differently, even better, next time. We’ll post a summary of the survey after it’s closed. But in the meantime, feel free to keep posting here about the conference. Anything is fair game: likes and dislikes or thoughts about the topics themselves. Also, let’s all start thinking about what we want to do at our ’09 conference in NYC.
P.S. If you didn’t get the email with the link to the survey, or you misplaced it, write me.
From Nancy Schwartz:
Before the Conference, Nancy Schwartz blogged about this blog and pointed out a conference blog from the National Breast Cancer Coalition: Flying Out to Communications Network Conference Today — Will Report Out on What You Need to Know.
Thanks to these two prolific — and terrific — bloggers for their posts on Ira Glass’s plenary session on storytelling:
Denise Graveline: Ira Glass pitch advice: surprise me
I think one of the downsides of getting older, on top of creaky joints and other minor ailments, is meeting fatigue. Meaning, if you have the sort of job that requires you to attend lots and lots of meetings, both at your organization and out and about in your respective field of interest, you’ve probably attended your share of bad meetings. Meetings where you see panel after panel of boring speakers. Meetings where you play hooky from the afternoon sessions to shopping in whatever town you happen to be in.
