I have to say at this point, it was a tough descision about which session to attend – they were all stellar! I am sure I felt my two legs battling for alternate directions at one stage, with my torso spinning in yet another. Thank goodness for the virtual pass or I would have been walking around in circles!

The Breakfast Keynote session saw 4 of the quickest minds in Social Media today shared the stage together to chew the proverbial keynote fat about whether we are getting Smarter or just Busier. Jay Baer, Mario Sundar, Chris Brogan and Mark Schaefer were less like a panel and more like a group of blokes having a conversation over drinks with the entire room:

I could tell you how great Dave’s session was, but let’s do it with Tweets. Elizabeth Macken and Kim Garst have pretty much summed it up:

 

 


I have to say that I got lost finding tweets for this post – so many great 140 character summaries of the content that I literally feel like I was in some of the other sessions. It’s a great mini-byte of the virtual pass to come so I can truly catch up on all the sessions I missed.

Scrolling through the tweets has certainly highlighted what a superbly diverse series of speakers we were lucky to experience at #smmw13. It is a testament to Mike Stelzner and his team when I say that any one of the panels, speakers, sessions could have held their own in the ballroom and – in a perfect world – we could have stayed all week and enjoyed every session.

  • This is crazy, I was over loaded just reading those tweets!! You must be on a learning bender!!! Sounds awesome.

    • ha ha yes Holly – it was a lot to take in but I found the Twitter feed a great way to see what the other sessions were like so when I go back and look at some of them with the virtual pass I now know which ones to head to first. It definitely was hard to choose which session to go to!

  • Thanks for sharing Donna. I can only imaging being their with all of those social media leaders. Lots of great stuff. You are excited about your work and the industry. I would break down my tweets from the day even if it means more than one post. Give speaker nuggets and possible explanations.

    • Thanks Liz – yes there was a lot to take in – the conference content could have easily filled a week! It was enough to split it into two days for me – I may do one more summary post re takeaways but for now I am enjoying using the tweets as a quick summary of some of the sessions. I would recommend the virtual pass if you are interested as it will have all the recordings etc.

      • Most of those events are like that.Thanks for being a great sport with my comments and the info. I am sure others may be interested in the virtual pass, good to know there is one. I will keep that in mind too.

  • Toni Nelson

    Beig able to see, hear and experience first hand what the presenters were offering must have been amazing. I would have loved to hear Chris Brogan

    • It was Toni – I hope you enjoy just a taste of the sessions – this post is long, I know, but it was meant to be a “dip into” and oh, well let’s face it, I couldn’t decide which tweets to leave out, so I just kept adding them. This is just a drop in the ocean of all the Tweetables that came out of #smmw13 though!
