So, it's been an eventful week or so--apologies for not posting recently, but I've had a birthday and gotten married in the same week, which resulted in a net gain of +4 to my Klout score. So, there's a handy tip if you are also looking to gain influence. In any case, it's time to get back on the road to talk insights, influence, data and The Social Habit. Next week, I'll be speaking at the same event as Branson, Powell, Robbins, GE's Jeff Immelt and even the Red Hot Chili Peppers. And, I am sure, they are busily writing on their blogs that they'll be appearing with me. Of course, we won't all be speaking at once (my rider prohibits sharing the stage) but you can see us all at the biggest honkin' event I've ever attended, Dreamforce, in San Francisco next week.
Unlike those rookies Powell and Branson, who have merely one appearance, I'll be speaking at three different times--if you are going (and, statistically speaking, roughly 1% of the US population will be there) I hope to see you at one of the following:
Tuesday, 2PM: Social Media Influence-Can It Be Measured? What Do You Do Next?
Wednesday, 12PM: Using Social to Gather Intelligence Behind Enemy Lines
Thursday, 9AM: How To Derive Insight From Your Social Media Data
None of these sessions are linkable at the Dreamforce site, sadly, but if you are going to be attending, and have any of those time slots free, I'd love to meet you!
Rumors that the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be performing at one of my talks are unconfirmed, and, in fact, ludicrous.
