I mentioned that my take on Social Media might be a tad unique… Christopher Rollyson from Social Network Roadmap agrees. On his blog, he wrote:
“Faktor’s point of view was, for me, unorthodox and highly interesting because it challenged several assumptions I had about the shift to the Knowledge Economy. Therefore, it was one of the most valuable presentations of the conference for me personally.”

Time for something a little different. On Jan 21, I’ll be speaking at the Social Media Conference in Miami. The subject is the effect the economy will have on social media over the next 5-7 years. As you can expect, my take on the subject is unconventional. Curious? Come to see the show.
According to Pippa Callaghan from Connecting Group, “Not surprisingly, your presentation got really high marks in both content and style –higher than any of the other speakers.”
Attendee comments: “Incredible!” | “Content was great. Lots of positive enthusiasm“ | “Great content“ | “Good on creating culture” | “I can honestly say I will never forget the Low-fat Jell-O story”.

I’ll be speaking at the Optimizing Innovation Conference on October 21, 2009. You can look forward to another mesmerizing journey through the mind of an innovator. This time, I’ll be talking about ways to make a large, reluctant corporation embrace innovation. See you there!
Conference attendees have spoken. According to a note I just got from Dennis Noonan at Marcus Evans, I received the highest speaker scores at the conference. He wrote, “Your presentation received a 4.6 out of 5 for content and a 4.8 out of 5 for delivery.”
Attendee comments: “great content and delivery” | “great job” | “examples were very helpful” | “good mix” | “great talk and content” | “good – solid opening”
Awww…sometimes corporate life can be so heartwarming.
