It’s the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere (ok, at 7:09 p.m. – give or take a minute!) – and I don’t know about you, but here in Toronto we are crawling our way through a stifling heatwave - our first of the summer.
Speaking of things heating up (try the veal!) our Social Mix 2012 conference is really starting to sizzle.
With Gary Vee, Gini Dietrich, Geoff Livingston, Matt Hixson, and our own Danny Brown getting prepped and ready for July 26th, we figured we would crank up that thermometer a few degrees higher and share a few more reasons why you should be attending!
When a man brands himself as Mayor of Twitter, Smartest Man in the World, The Internet’s Head of Magic (R) *and* a graduate of the Handsome Boy Modeling School – you just know it’s gonna be a fun time!
Saul Colt, currently Head of Magic at Freshbooks, is more than just fun. He’s a seasoned marketeer, professional speaker and consultant specializing in social media and community building. In fact, don’t take my word for it!
Our community manager Helen Androlia had the pleasure of seeing him at the recent NXNEi fest, and she had this to say:
….he talked all about disruption, innovation, influence, and dead comedians….and he did it all in a pair of houndstooth pants that literally compelled me to introduce myself to him. I laughed, I tweeted, I scratched my head, and best of all? I walked away incredibly informed, and seriously inspired. That’s a lot of adjectives, sure – but he was that good.
Our Helen doesn’t exaggerate. Don’t miss Saul on July 26th. And don’t miss the traffic-stopping pants.
With 15+ years of experience in Web-based application development, product management and marketing, he’s been the architect behind many an exceptional team while building high growth technology businesses.
This guy knows CRM inside and out – he’s currently the Co-Founder & Program Director at the Centre for CRM Excellence at UofT’s prestigious Rotman School of Management; and also the Rotman School of Management’s ‘Entrepreneur-in-Residence (Stealth Mode)’.
Stealth mode…!? Cool. Maybe he *is* wearing those pants after all. All kidding aside, this is the go-to-guy for Social CRM learning. Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to hear Frank Falcone .
That’s a whole lot of talent and knowledge packaged into one day. We announced yesterday that we’ve extended our special Early Bird rates until June 30, 2012. And, with over 300 tickets already sold, you might want to grab yours before it’s too late.
Just think, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your air conditioned home or office!
