I arrived back home yesterday afternoon following a couple of red-eye flights, so am a little tired and jet lagged. I have so much to say about the New Communications Forum, and will share my thoughts with you later this week, after I have had a chance to reflect and read what everyone else is writing about.
The best thing about the event for me was getting to meet in person so many people I have read and admired online for years. To the speakers: a heart-felt thank you. It is obvious to say that we couldn't have done it without you. But after hearing from many participants that they learned so much from you, and wished they could have sat in on every session, it drove home to me how wonderful you all are. A special thanks for sharing the details about what you have learned vs. espousing fluffy ideas.
I started to write about individual speakers, and then realized it was becoming a big laundry list of how awesome everyone was. So I deleted that and simply state: From A-listers to long-time blogging friends to upcoming talent (and new friends) we had them all and they all added tremendous value. Thank you.
