Last week I was honored to be part of the wf360 summit at the New York Stock Exchange. The event started with a reception on the NYSE trading floor followed by an award dinner with 200 or so public company executives. The “360 Leadership” award this year was given to Anne Lauvergeon, the CEO of Areva, who was also profiled on 60 minutes.
One of the interesting experiments for this year’s summit, which I was happy to help facilitate for Susan Bird, the organizer of the event, was to invite well known business bloggers to attend and blog the event. You can see some pictures from the event taken by Howard Greenstein here, and also peruse posts about the rich conversations that took place by Don Dodge, Howard Greenstein, CK, Tom Steinthal (also here and here), Tom Guarriello (with video), Dorian Benkoil, Russ Nelson, and Rob Leavitt. There were additional bloggers at the dinner and I will update this post with links to their posts when they write about their experiences.
Besides meeting some great bloggers for the first time in person, I also met some fabulous people from various industries who were interested in talking about how to “operationalize” all this new social media stuff into their sales & marketing, their educational programs, and their human resources processes.
