Here’s a brief rundown of where I’ll be. I really hope to meet up with some of you while I’m on the East Coast. It will be 17 hours of travel – with a 4-year-old – to get there, but I know it will be well worth the trip.
May 19, 2011 – 2:15 PM – Miami, FL Miami Science Museum – Empowered Woman
Elevate Your Online Presence (Panel) – Hashtag: #ewssmiami
I’m speaking on a panel with some powerhouse women Denise Jacobs (@denisejacobs), Lynn Ponder (@ponderful), Mande White (@mandewhite) and Sandi Abbott (@xpressomarketin). We will each get about 5 minutes to distill down our best tips for social media and email marketing.
May 21, 2011 – 9:00 AM – Miami Beach, FL Miami Beach Convention Center – SheCon
Keynote Panel: The Women of Social Media. Hashtag – #shecon
5:00 PM – Miami Beach, FL Miami Beach Convention Center – SheCon
Closing Keynote at SheCon: Smart Ways to Use Future Tech and Social Media.
The description of this talk: You’ve heard the new buzzwords – Location-based networks, QR Codes, Augmented Reality, M-marketing and more – but who has enough time – or brain power – to keep up with it all? Get rid of those blank stares and eyes glazing over. Take charge of technology. Here’s a crash course in what’s on the horizon for the next few years and how it impacts your blog, your work and your life.
If you’re at SheCon, I’ll also be helping to promote the Wine Sisterhood Drink-u-lator app for iPhone and Android. While sipping Wine Sisterhood wine, of course. Check out the Wine Sisterhood Sassy Suite Friday and Saturday nights (May 20 & 21) starting at 7pm at the Shelborne Hotel. Look for updates for the Suite # on Twitter by following us: @winesisterhood. The hashtag for that is #winesister. In the meanwhile, don’t forget to “like” their page on Facebook.
May 26, 2011 – 9:00 AM – New York, New York Jacob Javits Center –Blogworld Expo
Speak Up: Empowering Women to Find Their Voices (presenting with C.C. Chapman). Hashtag – #bweeast
The description of this talk: Despite all of our best efforts, there is still a dearth of female speakers at business, tech and venture conferences, particularly keynoters. But we can all do something about this imbalance, including women themselves. This workshop is a dynamic, interactive session about overcoming fear in public speaking and taking deliberate steps to craft speaking proposals.
Will you be attending any of these conferences? Where will your travels take you next?
