Wow – what an amazing day at the eWomenNetwork Conference! All of the speakers were tremendous today. We heard from Debbie Meyer, Inventor of Debbie Meyer™ Green Bags® as she shared her story about creating products that solve problems that she has had in her life.
Next we heard from Loral Langemeier about how to “Put more cash in our pockets” – I heard Loral speak last year in a break-out session, and he was even more dynamic on the main stage this year.
It was hard to choose between all of the terrific break-out sessions offered! I attended Linda Clemons break-out entitled “The Power, Persuasive, Seductive Art of Sellng” (WOW – she is a powerhouse of information and strategies for closing the deal!) Then it was on to my fellow main-stage presenter for tomorrow, Mari Smith’s presentation on how to use Facebook and Twitter to grow your business. Dubbed the Pied Piper of Facebook by Fast Company Magazine, she is a dynamic speaker and a warm, funny gal to get to know!
We heard from Sheryl Westad from Intuit (did you know that some folks can type 60 words per minute on their cell phones – amazing!) and Kathy Daly-Jennings from Google about how to employ Adwords in your business.
The presentations closed with fellow Minnesotan, Robert Stephens from The Geek Squad presenting about “Your Business Online” — for a self-professed “geek” he certainly is funny; I can see how that sense of humor has helped him build the huge organization he has created. I caught up with Robert after his talk along with a couple of my Minnesota girlfriends (pictured below).
It’s off to Nordstroms tonight for shopping and fun … see you there!
