Memories from the Inbound Marketing Summit
Posted by Bernie Borges on May 03 2009
I attended the Inbound Marketing Summit in San Francisco April 28/29. I’ve processed the event in my head and here are some of my memories from the event.
Chris Brogan’s humility is as impressive as his wisdom.
Justin Levy doesn’t need much sleep to get the job done.
Paul Gillin is my choice to lead a panel session any day of the week.
Dharmesh Shah likes to give presentations no matter how much he tells us he doesn’t.
Tim Ferriss isn’t shy about plugging his services while he has the stage.
Brian Halligan’s parents had deep discussions about Tide detergent commercials.
Tim Street is my choice to close out a full day of presentations any time.
Tim O’Reilly is also my choice to close out a full day of presentations any time.
The private party sponsored by DNA13 was great. Too bad just two bartenders were on call for 200 people.
Here are some interesting factoids that caught my attention during the presentations.
The average age of the newspaper reader in the U.S. is 57: Paul Gillin
We learned to share in kindergarten. Our training for social networking started then: Tim Young.
To get your video to go viral create a spectacle, tell a story, create emotion: Tim Street
Companies who measure the lifetime value of customers measure the outcome of relationships in social media: Charlene Li. BTW, not to take anything away from Charlene, but I’ve been saying the same for quite a while…
Chris Brogan’s (self proclaimed) occupation is “typist.”
I interviewed Chris Brogan to discuss why he shaved his head for charity (unedited):
I interviewed Mike Volpe to discuss the meaning of inbound marketing:
Hope to see you at the next Inbound Marketing Summit in Dallas, May 27/28.
