The Importance of the Company You Keep
My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company.
Jane Austen would have a great time at SIPA 2011—June 5-7 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C. (If she registered by tomorrow’s early-bird deadline, of course.)
– Clever people, check. Read what keynote speaker Perry Hewitt says about her role at Harvard: ““Social platforms allow the university to provide unprecedented access to information and open up lectures, performances and news of research and discovery to a worldwide audience. We use these… platforms to tell—and empower others to tell—real and relevant stories about Harvard.”
– Well-informed people, check. From Glenn Demby of Bongarde: “Information is absorbed on the go and in a million different formats and media. IMHO, the quality of the information and analysis we provide is a cut above. But our delivery systems and formats are obsolescent and need to be re-engineered to enable users to process the info more easily.
– Conversation, check. Thirty-plus roundtables—such as Webinar Basics, Planning Your Mobile Strategy and Using Sales and Metrics to Improve ROI—will take care of that.
– And good company, check. Look at just a few of the companies that are signed up to attend SIPA 2011:
