SOBCon07 Was Something Special
From the minute the first of you showed up at the Sofitel. It was like magnets. No one was alone. People found each other and started to talk. A few found us and immediately the conversation began. We just watched as people jumped right over the small talk to get on with knowing each other.
You even said thank you in a most awesome way.
Generosity of spirit is viral. Picture 110 people in a hotel ballroom, all generously sharing business ideas and secrets, building on each otherâ€™s creativity, and offering their experience as a gift. I canâ€™t remember the last time I was in a space where that kind of spirit abounded on such a large scale. Conflict tempts us to hold our cards close to our vest, to be cautious, to be stingy with our warmth and spirit. That stinginess begets more of the same. Generosity of spirit is so much easierâ€¦all we have to do is make the choice to do it. Thank you, my fellow SOCcon-ers.–Tammy Lenski
This year had to be even more. How could we offer less than that?!
SOBCon08 Magic — It’s What Happens In One Room
We set out to build a conference that had all of the values of a great blog. Thank you, Brian Clark for pointing out what Tony D. Clark said about that.
Thank you, too, to Chris Brogan for a great peek at what you’ll be talking about — one of the best social media documents on the web.
The value only begins there. . . here are just a few more presenters.
Every one of them is handing over something
Then, of course, there’s you. You’re coming together from Scotland, England, Denmark, France, Mexico, and Canada. That’s going to be one incredible room of international experience.
Models and Mastermind Teams that build to a Plan. A support system that goes deep and lasts long — maybe a lifetime. Who could ask for more value than that?
