By Shannon DiGregorio Abram, Relationship Manager at The Community Roundtable.
Today I’m settling back in after a week on the road. Rachel and I visited Orlando for Sitrion’s Collective 2014. I had a great time and met tons of people who really “get” community. It was wonderful to have conversations about the challenges a community manager faces and get to hear from some exciting brands.
Luke Sinclair emcee’d the event (full disclosure – Luke is also a member of TheCR Network) and he did an amazing job getting everyone involved. Each day he issued a challenge for attendees – and on Wednesday it was a #selfie challenge. I’ve never seen so many people in business attire happily plotting the most creative selfie! (That’s ours, above!)
I loved the twitter stream (and the selfies) so much that I created a Storify that I’ve included at the end of this post – now it’s like you were right there with us! Next week Jim, Hillary and Jillian are headed to San Francisco for Lithium’s LiNC. If you’re going to be in town for LiNC please let us know – we’d love to meet you!
Don’t worry – even with all my selfie excitement I didn’t forget the links:
