A quick note to say thanks to Brady, Bre et al - for another great Ignite event. Cupcakes were gorgeous and the talks were a blast. I even got to express four years of "alley vs valley" in a compact 5 minutes!
NYC Tidbit: The classy theatre venue for last nite was a favorite haunt well over 10 years - it was a second run moving theatre [pre netflix, itunes]. You youngins may ask what the heck is a second run movie theatre? Back in the day movies that had been out for a few months would disappear into blockbuster oblivion. Worldwide Cinemas would screen them - ticket price $2. Of course the economics didn't hold out so alas they went belly-up. Good times.
Here the chat. Hugh graciously created a cartoon for me that alas - did not make in time for last nite's preso so I used it here:
I also want to give a shout out to Daphne & Bill & the ExpoTV staff for hosting the first ever P&G Social Media lab cocktails prior to the event. We had a great crowd, great food ,great conversation and even a few games of pool. I particularly enjoyed getting to introduce partners to each other and getting feedback on how we can make the program even better. I am hoping to make this semi-regular kind of event. There is nothing like face to face for making connections. I particulrly am going to explore how to make these events broader without losing the intimacy and ability to really chat.
