Live Tweeting & Maybe Some Blogging too from 2011 Small Business Summit in NYCMarch 8th, 2011 | Events,KikScore & KikReport,Online & Small Business Resources,Small Business Tips,Social Media | No Comments »
Today the KikScore team is making the trek up to New York city to attend the 2011 Small Business Summit. This is the sixth annual summit and it is organized by the fabulous Ramon Ray and his team. We have had to miss the last few years events so this year when we were offered an opportunity to attend we jumped at it. It is even true I picked the Small Business Summit over attending SXSWi which is coming up this weekend (well 14 month old Asha had a roll in that decision too!). And yes, the trip up to New York did include me getting up at 3:50am this morning to catch a cab at 4:20am so I could grab the 5am train out of DC’s Union Station! You read those times right! As I tweeted earlier this morning either I need to find a mimosa or some really strong Red Bull type drink. In all seriousness, the excitement that we feel at KikScore about attending the event will more than keep us rolling throughout the day.
If you can not make it to New York, the Summit will be live streamed. The agenda is jam packed with great speakers that include DC’s own Warren Brown (Cakelove), Mark Gambill (Dell), Christopher McCann (1-800-Flowers), John “ColderICE” Lawson (Ecommerce Expert) Elen Pack (ELance), Kirk Averett (Rackspace), Jim Fowler (Jigzaw), Pamela O’Hara (BatchBlue Software) as well as Ramon Ray and many others.
Watch out here for some updates (if we get a break between all the great content and networking) or check the Twitter stream under #smallbizsummit.
If you are in attendance, please look for me and say hello. I will be the person wearing two hats! Well at least figuratively (our nights and weekend entrepreneurs know what I am talking about there!).
