I’ll be speaking at several different conferences in July and August. If you are at any of these shows or are in the area you should attend and say hello.
WHAT: Start-Up Scramble
WHEN: Friday, July 30, 2010
WHERE: The University of Scranton, Kania School of Management
COMMENTS: I’ll be delivering one of the opening night keynotes. Several other prominent entrepreneurs from the State of Pennsylvania, including Andrew Cornell, CEO of Cornell Ironworks and Larry Rinish, CEO of Neophyte, LLC will be featured speakers at the multi-day event to promote entrepreneurism and to “to help young people in Northeast Pennsylvania rebuild a vibrant startup community around their unique talents with the support and guidance of local business and civic leaders.” Learn more here.
WHAT: Affiliate Summit East
WHEN: August 15-17, 2010; My panel is on Tuesday, August 17, 2010 from 2:00-3:00pm.
WHERE: Hilton, New York City
COMMENTS: I moderate a panel entitled “How Bloggers Can Successfully Connect with Audiences,” which includes some industry heavyweights, including Drew Bennett, Blogger/Photographer, BenSpark.com (Twitter @BenSpark), Tim Jones, Co-Owner, Destinations To Explore, Inc. (Twitter @TheRealTimJones), Murray Newlands, Co-Founder, Influence People (Twitter @murraynewlands), and Eric Schechter, Social Media Manager, Clickbooth (Twitter @EricSchechter).
WHAT: Search-Engine Strategies – San Francisco / part of ClickZ’s Connected Marketing Week
WHEN: August 16-20, 2010; My panel is scheduled for August 18, 2010 from 11:00-12:00pm. Yepper – it’s going to require a Red Eye from NYC to San Fran…FML.
WHERE: Moscone Center West, San Francisco, CA
COMMENTS: After a Red Eye flight from PHL to SAN I should be ready to easily moderate a panel on “Competitive Research” with what I assume will be some search industry titans. Since the schedule is just finalizing I’m likely to speak and or moderate another panel or two. The good news for me is that I’ve decided to turn my San Fran trip into a multi-dayer so I can meet with some of my Silicon Valley start-up friends. I’ll post more info once I have it. If you are in the San Fran area and want to meet connect with me on twitter @krisjonescom.
More July / August 2010 speaking gigs to be announced soon.
