Just a quick note to say that I'll be at the upcoming New York Times Small Business Summit on November 17, 2008.
The agenda looks great. The day features two keynotes: Gary Hirshberg, CEO of Stoneyfield Farm, and Liz Lange, Founder of Liz Lange Maternity. Then there are breakout sessions covering: strategies for growth in a tough economy, empowering your team, and the new marketing landscape.
You can wander through the vendor fair and check out offerings to help you run your business. There will be speed networking, too, which is always fun and worthwhile. And a cocktail reception for more relaxed networking caps the day.
I hope you will stop in and say "hi" -- I'll be in the American Express OPEN Advice Center. I'll be there to answer your questions. Anything you want to know about, anything you think I might be able to help with, I will be happy to try to assist you.
I understand they are setting me up with a plasma screen hooked to my laptop, so that we can talk about social media sites, for instance. Be happy to show you some of the neat little tricks I've learned about how to use social media sites for low-cost marketing without having social media take over your life. :)
When: November 17, 2008 from 8:30 AM to 6:30 PM
Where: Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers, 811 7th Avenue (at the corner of 53rd Street), New York, NY 10019
