Global Networking, Social Media and a Cuppa Joe


Looking for new ways to network on those endless roadtrips?

Try Social Media Breakfasts.

This morning I went to the inaugural SF-East Bay Social Media Breakfast and met over thirty new faces. These people ran the gamut in both age and background. Five of them worked in areas that were directly relevant to my business. One turned out to be a friend of a friend. And interestingly, well over half of them were women.

Currently held in 18 cities around the world — and spreading rapidly — Social Media Breakfasts pull together a group of social media experts, enthusiasts and newcomers to share uses, successes and learning curves related to social media applications. Experts briefly present and then open the floor to attendees so that projects, experiences and relevant event/contact information can be shared. Everyone is welcome, and this one was free.

Thanks to JD Lasica for presenting, Shel Holtz and Kenny Lauer for organizing, Liveworld for sponsoring the event at Cesar, and the Society for New Communications Research for getting the word out.

    Glad you enjoyed the SMB yesterday morning, and so thrilled that the East Bay has gotten a series started. I hope to come to more breakfasts when I can!

    The SMB international venues caught my attention. Can’t tell you how many times in how many countries I would have loved to break a formal meeting routine to have a casual breakfast with interesting, well-networked, friendly people. Hope the global trend continues!

    Thanks for stepping up to create something terrific.
