Next week I'm off to Proctor & Gamble (a Critical Mass client) to do a talk and participate in a day of internal work sessions that will be attended by approximately 400 P&G employees. P&G is taking the rise of social networks and how this is influencing consumer behavior pretty seriously and that will be the theme for the day. I've been participating in their internal "Social Media Lab" where there are a lot of ongoing conversations and sharing going on and I've found it to be quite insightful. Deb Schultz has been working with Procter & Gamble in this initiative. Rumor has it, that there will be a karaoke meetup in Cincinnati on the evening of 9/3. For more details follow me on Twitter.
I'll be doing a 20 minute talk at the Chicago New Media Summit which is a first ever event of the likes in Chicago. If you are in the area, this might be worth looking into.
I'll be joining an all star lineup for OREILLY's Web 2.0 Expo held in NYC. This is one I'm really honored to be a part of and I think I'm looking forward to listening and learning than I am talking.
Hope to see you at any of these events. Especially karaoke night in Cincinnati. :-)
