We gathered at OneAlfredPlace this morning for coffee, tea, juice and pastries and lots and lots of conversation. Thanks very much to Steve Moore for making the introduction and to Rob Shreeve for making us so welcome. If anyone’s interested in joining OneAlfredPlace, please let me know and I’ll pass on the details –
as it’s been hinted to me that we might secure a small discount if people sign as a result of today. sorry, completely my misunderstanding and misperception – that’s not on the cards after all, but don’t let that stop you signing up🙂
My regret with it was that I didn’t actually get to take part in any of the larger conversations, though I was grateful to meet a bunch of new people face to face too. I’d love it if people could say something either on the wiki or their own blogs about what they talked about, if only for me to find out🙂
Thanks very much to Dan and Rob for doing last-minute impromptu provocations and I’m sorry (though secretly glad) that I didn’t let them know how exposing that role was going to be beforehand.
From memory I think we had conversations about:
Building a list of interesting folk to talk to BERR (Jane O’Loughlin)
Combining relentless creativity with social media (Steve Lawson)
Turning your passion into something that makes money (Pippa Crawford & Dan McQuillan)
Finding new clients online (Rebecca Caroe)
Business podcasting (Mike O’Hara)
Organisation Lite (David Wilcox & Jemima Gibbons)
but there were lots of little seedling conversations in between and I’m glad to say, a reasonable amount of use of the “law of two feet”.
Just the first – not bad at all, by my “first post always sucks” benchmark
