Speaking schedule for June, onwards
By Charlene Li
I’ll be speaking at several upcoming events – hope to see some of you there.
Supernova 2005, Monday, June 20th, San Francisco, CA. I’ll be speaking on a “Business Blogging” workshop on Monday, June 20th and will probably be attending the conference for part of Tuesday as well. If the event is even half as good as the pre-pre-event dinner, it will be absolutely fantastic.
Tuck/NewsMarket Breakfast, Wednesday, June 22nd, Palo Alto, CA. This is a breakfast event with the title “How Technology Is Revolutionizing News Distribution And Corporate Reputation”. Most of the attendees will be marketeering/PR people also attending the Semiconductor Industry Association meeting, but it’s “open to qualified professionals”. Let me know if you have any problems getting a spot.
VerticalLeap, Tuesday, June 28th, Santa Clara, CA. This is shaping up to be a nice day-long conference hosted by SDForum. I’ll be on a panel in the morning on local search that includes the usual suspects – Yahoo!, MSN, and Google.
blogher Conference, Saturday, July 30th, Santa Clara, CA. This day long conference will highlight all of the great work women are doing in the blogosphere – and also provide some valuable hands-on training. I’ll be on the opening debate “Does Today’s Link-based Power Structure Hurt Women Bloggers? Should We Care?” with Halley Suitt on whether “it’s important to win by today’s rules, or to change them entirely.” I’ll let you figure out which side I’m on. One hint – if you check out the speaker lists for the above events, there’s only one other woman. Hmmm…..
Podcast & Portable Media Expo, Friday, November 11th, Ontario, CA. What, a podcasting show already?!? I’ll be moderating a panel “Podcast & Citizen Media: How It Is Changing Traditional Media”.
And here are shameless plugs for two Forrester events:
Social Marketing: Tapping Into The Power Of Connected Consumers, Thursday, July 28th, Cambridge, MA. This is a day-long, hands-on workshop that walks participants through the strategy and nitty-gritty of using blogs, RSS, viral marketing, and podcasts for communication purposes. I’m still finalizing the agenda and external speakers, but it should be a good intro for marketers.
Consumer Forum 2005: Innovating In A Consumer-Driven World, September 27-28, New York, NY. I’ll be giving one of the keynote speeches at Forrester’s main consumer event, which is currently entitled, “Social Blogging: Bubble Or Big Deal”.
