We’re all about stretching our networks via every available technology in this information age. But occasionally we’re so curious, so enchanted, or perhaps overwhelmed by it all – that the only relief we can find is through talking about it. Face to face. Real time. With experts. Today, a lot of people are getting just that opportunity.
If you’re craving some immersion in the world of social engagement, in-NW (in Northwest, to the initiated) is the place to learn, grow, and network. We’re convinced, and we’ll be there in force covering the day’s events, from the panel on State Of Engagement chaired by MCDM program director Hanson Hosein to the final talk by Steve Mallory, Director of Idea Startup at Edelman on Brand Storytelling. The full agenda is available here.
The State of Engagement panel will feature a diverse group of thought leaders in the social media sphere: Brian Marr of Smashing Ideas, Ryan Hodgson of Weber Shandwick, and media consultant Jenni Hogan.
It promises to be a uniquely stimulating, idea-rich day, and we’ll be posting articles on Flip the Media over the next few days, as well as tweeting and live-blogging from the convention.
This convention is much more than a day of lectures and passive absorption. Everyone, from panelists to attendees, will be able to interact and add to the energy of the “In”:
* INVOKE new ideas
* INSPIRE creativity and thought leadership
* INFORM participants with best practices
* INSTIGATE action throughout everyone’s respective online communities
The day will be bookended by sessions with local musician Chris Ballew of the Presidents of the United States, who will crowd source a song about childhood memories with the tweets (#innwsong) and facebook entries facebook.com/innorthwest of participants. Chris will open the day by inspiring the audience and collecting ideas which he’ll synthesize into a performance at the end of the day.
Will you gain new insights and inspiration? Will your childhood memory be featured?
We hope you’ll join us. Stay in touch for all the highlights.
We’ll be listening for your childhood memory…
