Solutions Stars Video Conference Brings the Conference Directly to You

27 10 2008

On October 29th from 1p EST to approximately 3:30p EST, you will have the opportunity to watch 32 leading business, marketing, and social media experts.  The best part is you don’t have to travel anywhere and it’s free!

Network Solutions is hosting the Solutions Stars Video Conference to explain to small business and entrepreneurs how the Internet can benefit their businesses.  This conference will focus on nine content areas:

  • Building Web Presence
  • The Social Opportunity
  • Start with Listening
  • Strategy Drives Outreach
  • You Need Social Networks
  • To Blog or Not to Blog
  • Visibility Through Search
  • Rising Above the Noise
  • Time Demands

While the fact that there is a free conference which you can watch from the comfort of your office chair or couch is cool enough, take a look at a short list of some of the presenters:

If you don’t know who any of these guys are then spend some time going through each of the above links.  Every single person on the list of 32 is someone who you should be familiar with!

What makes this so interesting for me is that the format reminds me of the Pixelated Conference Series that I participated in at the beginning of the month, thanks to Chris Brogan, Mitch Joel and Bryan Eisenberg.  I will definitely be tuning in on Wednesday, will you?  If not then you’ll be missing out a great opportunity to learn a lot about business, marketing and social media in just a couple of hours.  Did I forget to mention that it’s FREE?!?!

To attend all you have to do is return to the Solutions Stars Video Conference site at 1p EST on Wednesday.

WBJ Central New England Sales Summit

31 07 2008

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend the first ever Central New England Sales Summit put on by the Worcester Business Journal.  After the morning keynote by Scott Michael Zimmerman, the afternoon featured several breakout sessions.

One of the sessions which generated the most buzz was hosted by Mark Roberge and Peter Caputa of HubSpot as well as David Hurlbrink of Landslide.  The discussion focused on how to develop an inbound marketing strategy and how to utilize a CRM/SFA system to properly manage your sales funnel.

The slideshows from all of the presentations are available courtesy of the speakers and the WBJ.

Other blogs about yesterday’s event:

Peter Caputa: LiveBlogging about Blogging at the Worcester Business Journal Sales Summit
Rick Roberge: WBJ Sales Summit Feedback
Laura Briere: Our Own Personal Superstar
Betty Do: Sales Leadership Advice: Stop Selling!

The one-day event turned out to be a great event which was packed with a lot of information and provided for an excellent networking opportunity.  This event is definitely not one you want to miss next year!

Thanks to all those I had the chance to speak with yesterday and I look forward to talking with you in the future!
