Today Mike is joined by Julius Solaris in London from Event Manger Blog & Blur Marketing. Julius is also the owner of Event Planning and Management group on Linkedin.com.(which has 11 thousand members)

Mike and Julius were participating in The EventProfs Chat via Tweetchat this week. The chats are attended by event and meeting professionals. I am sorry I could not name them all. The plan is to have a live discussion as the chat went on hoping to point out the nuggets this niche crowd was sharing and have more discussion.

You can attend #eventprofs Chat Mondays 6-7 PM Pacific Time or Thursday 9am-10am Pacific Time.

#EventProfs Audio Experiment – Hit or Miss?

eventprofslogo #EventProfs Audio Experiment   Hit or Miss?

I hope you enjoy and dont mind this Talkshoe #eventProfs Audio Experiment which I threw down the MeetingsPodcast feed. Lara McCulloch-Carter started this Event and meeting bi-weekly chats using Twitter and Tweetchat which lets you see only the tweets with the #eventprofs hashmark. Today eventprofs took another step forward (or backwards some said) by adding video to the mix. Robert Swanwick of SpeakerInteractive.com headed this trial run today. The process was hindered by Twitter really lagging behind I found it to be 8- 10 minutes behind so most people who werent on the call were left out of the action. But I think they had some good conversation.

[Warning- its pretty long- and a big file icon smile #EventProfs Audio Experiment   Hit or Miss? ]

Today Mike is joined by Julius Solaris in London from Event Manger Blog & Blur Marketing. Julius is also the owner of Event Planning and Management group on Linkedin.com.(which has 11 thousand members)

Mike and Julius were participating in The EventProfs Chat via Tweetchat led by Jeff Hurt of Midcourse Corrections Blog The chats are attended by event and meeting professionals. I am sorry I could not name them all. The plan is to have a live discussion as the chat went on hoping to point out the nuggets this niche crowd was sharing and have more discussion.

You can attend #eventprofs Chat Tuesday 6-7 PM Pacific Time or Thursday 9am-10am Pacific Time.

As expected Twitter went down as the Chat was suppose to start and Julius and Mike discussed virtual events and experiences as they waited for twitter to come back up. (We do understand the irony of a virtual event going down when we were suppose to be talking about virtual events- technology is unpredictable- like the weather as Julius commented) icon smile #EventProfs From the Sidelines Virtual Events and Experiences

Twitter offers so many cool channels of feedback. The whole new twitter chats like #eventprofs is just amazing to me and I love attending (when I have time)

How many times did I use the word COOL in this post. (if you are correct you win a prize!)
