Sight Seeing Social Media at #ASTDL20

Last week I had the pleasure of presenting a session at the ASTD Learning 2.0 Conference in Westford, Massachusetts.

It was a great conference for a number of reasons:

  1. Focused on ONE topic – social learning.
  2. One-day only event – easy in and out – and not a huge time commitment.
  3. Close to home. Did I mention it was about 5 minutes from my house? I got to go to a conference AND tuck my kids in that night.
  4. Great speakers! The lineup include Tony Bingham, David Wilkins, Jim Storer, Jean Marrapodi, David Kelly and Gina Rosenthal. (I blogged a couple of the sessions: my notes from Tony Bingham’s keynote and Jim Storer on the Emerging Role of Community Managers).
  5. And of course, we were social and went out for a beer afterwards :)

I presented a 90 minute Sight Seeing Tour of Social Media – basically a view of SoMe through my own experience. I’ve posted my slides below, but most of the session was conversation and chatting as the group shared their experiences, concerns and questions.

As someone who’s been living and breathing Social Media for awhile now, it was great to step back and see what a wide world it really is and how wide the spectrum of usage actually is.

What a great presentation! You covered a lot of ground to introduce so many of the fabulous things we all take for granted after using these things for a few years. Thanks for assembling them in one place.
