Hi All, this is my first foray into the blogosphere. Please be nice. Then again…. At Media140 last week I was taught to stick my neck out; put myself on the line. I should say what I’m thinking, even if that leads to repercussions like people disowning me online, apparently that’s okay. It just makes your blogs richer and more insightful.

Highlights of the event for me were:

  • Kristen Vang from Hatchd doing Let’s Get Phygital! This was an engaging presentation on how to be more engaging.
  • Michael Walton from Nielsen was likewise very entertaining and interesting. Who knew stats could be fun. Where were you during my uni days Mike?
  • We also had the pleasure of hearing the Social Media insights of Venessa Paech with her down to earth genius, over both Thursday and Friday.
  • Miles Burke’s 37 hints and tips for the digital entrepreneur was a nice way to cap off the second days presentations.

Over the coming weeks we will be posting a little bit more detail on how we have been able to use some of the interesting things we have learnt at Media140.
