New Header Design

I want to take just a moment to thank my friend Stan Phelps for designing a new header pic for this blog. Stan is the EVP at Synergy Events who I met at the recent PRSA conference in San Diego. He did a nice job of taking my probably poorly described idea of what I was trying to do on this blog and made it look exactly like it did in my head!
 
You should also check out Stan’s marketing blog and be sure to ask him about “Marketing Lagniappe”!

PRSA 2009 Conference in San Diego – Packing List

Heading to The PRSA 2009 Conference this weekend? 2009internationalLogo
Here are a few things to remember to bring:

 

 

•Hand sanitizer. Seriously. It should be a new conference and trade show rule that everyone has to carry a bottle.  The only thing I want to bring home is some new ideas.

•Business cards – whatever number you were planning to bring, double it.

•You don’t have your @twitter handle printed on your cards yet? Take 20 minutes this week and write it on the back of  a couple of dozen. Because at the show, no, I don’t have a pen!

 

Remember, if you can’t make it to the conference, please check back here throughout the week. I’ll be blogging throughout each day with conference notes, updates, interviews, and photos.
