SPBT Conference re-cap 

It was a lively event in Orlando last week, and I enjoyed renewing bonds with so many of you (on both the client and vendor side). Here is my brief review of the conference on the Impactiviti blog.

Also, as a follow-up to my workshop on Advancing your Career through Social Media, here is a link to a resource page I've set up to help you get starting with social networking.

The Reset  

One of the favorite consulting services that I offer is The Reset - taking a step back with you and helping bring focus to your training strategy (while addressing the constant problem of WAS - Wandering Accretion Syndrome!). Read about it here, and contact Impactiviti to set up your one-day session!


Do you need vendor recommendations? Just give us a call (973.947.7429) or send an e-mail (stevew at impactiviti dot com) and we'll identify the optimal vendor/partners for you in the Impactiviti Network! Yes, this is a free service (I work on a referral fee basis with my hand-selected partners).

Friday Stuff 


I talked a lot about using LinkedIn during the SPBT Conference. Here is some great advice from Chris Brogan about powering up your LinkedIn profile.

Astronomy Picture of the Day really brought it this week on visual treats. Check out the galaxy views here and here. Stunning stuff.

Looking to broaden your social network? I'm organizing a lunch tweetup this coming Monday in Bridgewater, NJ. Details and sign-up here.


Thank you for reading, and let me know what connections I can make for you (and, please forward this e-mail to others in your company who may find it helpful!)
