So many PodCamp sessions, so little time
March 24, 2011
One of the challenges of PodCamp Nashville each year is deciding which sessions to attend. There are always more engaging speakers and appealing topics than time slots, and this year is no exception. Are you feeling overwhelmed by all of the choices? Based on an unscientific combination of speaker ability and subject matter, here are my recommendations for sessions to sit in on during each time period:
- Mitch Canter, The Ultimate WordPress Experience. WordPress can do so much more than merely host a blog.
- Brian Dailey, The Rise of Data & Data Analysis. There will always be more data to analyze, and there will always be more to learn about how to do it.
- Stephen Zralek, Kill All The Lawyers: The Legal & Marketing Aspects of Using Social Media. A lawyer recommending the use of social media is an uncommon sight.
- Dale Rogers, Have a Plan: Designing for Multimedia. If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there?
- Courtenay Rogers, The Power of Digital Stalking. How can you go wrong with a title like that?
- David Foster, Becoming A Thought Leader/Influencer With Your Audio Podcast. A talented speaker from a higher calling shares ideas with the Digerati.
- Kate O’Neill, Cathartic Content: How Building A Blog Helped Me Grow, Forgive, and Become A Better Leader. An inspiring note upon which to wrap up the day, unless you’re headed to the after party. In that case, consider this tailgating for the main event.
Don’t let my suggestions scare you away from another speaker covering another topic. As long as you make it in the doors at PodCamp, the odds are very high that you’ll meet great people and learn lots of new things. See you Saturday!
