Looking Back and Looking Forward: From my.barackobama.com to Tammy Erickson
I've been looking back at some of the video footage from our Enterprise 2.0 Conference this past June in Boston and reminded of our opening keynote address from Jascha Franklin-Hodge called my.barackobama.com: The Secrets of Obama's New Media Juggernaut . What a great speaker and great way to kick off the conference.I'm just as excited to hear from Tammy Erickson, our opening keynote speaker for the E2 Conference in San Francisco next week. Tammy was recently added to the global "Thinkers 50" list along with the likes of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates and she focuses on building strategies that will help business succeed. Enterprise 2.0 is often driven from the ground up, through grass roots efforts that start small and take root across the enterprise. But the Enterprise 2.0 message and the mandate for business managers is equally important and one that Tammy will deliver loud and clear next week.See you at the conference next week and in the meantime, please enjoy this past talk from our video archives.
