Des Moines 140 Cast Includes Onward & Upward Blogger April 30, 2011

Posted by shawnpci in Change Leadership, Good Stuff to Share.

When I finally decided to get active with all this Web 2.0 stuff, little did I realize how “linked”, “faced”, “tweeted”, “blogged” and “googled” I would become.

And so it is that I’ve been selected to present at the upcoming Des Moines 140 Conference “Exploring the State of Now” on Monday, May 9 at the Stoner Theater of the Des Moines Civic Center at 1:50 p.m.  I’ll be one of a cast of characters to talk about our experiences and uses of all these various social and communication mediums.

One of my LinkedIn associates suggested I check-out this upcoming conference and put my hat in the ring.  So, I did.  Here’s the blurb that I submitted.  My headline was “It Sucks To Be Left Behind.”

I’m a relative newbie to this Web 2.0, Social Media gig. But at 50 years of age, I’ll be darned if I’m gonna miss getting with this program. I’ll admit it…I’m just getting started and am not as widely “linked”, “faced” “blogged” or “tweeted” as others, but I can share my beginner’s experiences in a fast paced, clear and concise presentation. I can also share why, from a business perspective, leveraging LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter is a no-brainer.I’m certainly no expert on the technologies, but I am an expert on my experiences.
