Thanks to Bobby Rettew and View (these guys do an awesome job with anything that touches video or event coverage) for organizing the event, mediating the panel and also covering the event. Talk about multitasking! (All we had to do is just sit there and answer questions.)
On the panel (left to right): Me, Steve Gonzalez, John Warner, Phil Yanov and Trey Pennington. Lots of Community Management gravitas and Social Media savvy on that panel.
Click on the image (above) to go check out the videos. You’ll notice that there are three: The first is the intro, the second is the panel discussion, and the third is the Q&A session. Enjoy.
Follow-up to this post.
Completely off topic…
How come you don’t have (really don’t have) a French accent? If I’m not mistaken you said 15 years in SC
Good catch. When I was 13, my parents moved to Belgium and I started studying English at the International School of Brussels. It was kind of a sink or swim thing, so I learned pretty quickly. By the time I started college at 17, I was pretty much fluent. Whatever accent I had left faded by the end of my freshman year. 🙂
I am told that I have a good ear for music and languages. 🙂
I have watched all three of the videos and I have only ONE problem with them: I want to get them in front of MORE people than were present or who have already seen them online, so they can benefit.
As one immersed in a few social platforms, I take some things for granted that it’s illuminating to get an outside perspective on… like the students asking about Linked In. I love that this panel seemed pretty mixed in that you are all somewhat different types of “users” and utilize different tools. Great overview, great summary, just flippin’ great.
Still thinking about how to get them in front of more folks who would get a lot out of this conversation. Bobby did an excellent job moderating as well.
It probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to do a college tour across the US. Maybe mix up the panel as needed, but keep the concept pretty much the same.
That explains! Sorry for the off topic comment but I’ve been in the US for 13 years and, from time to time, I mispronounce a world and realize it by looking at people’s faces ;-).
I guess I should wait another 15 yrs…..but then who knows where I will be.
This was such a cool event and could not have happened without the great conversation by the panel. The dynamic is the reason why Clemson University wants more. It is my hope that we can work together to make this successful this coming Fall! Thanks so much for taking time and giving back to “our future”, the ones who will lead us one day!
