I am a really happy guy this week. Why you ask? Well! Let me tell you…
December and January are busy months for me and my clients. Together, we will be headed from Hartford to Long Beach, Mexico to Virginia, with a whole lotta stops in between. I love my job, I love to travel, and I love being able to work on some pretty cool meetings with some pretty amazing people. [Read more...]
In today’s episode of the PlannerWire Sporadic Podcast, PlannerWire (Keith) is chatting with BigEventApp.com (Mike and Carl).
Mike and Carl will tell you that their mission is to create buzz-worthy apps, that are clear, highly intuitive and include schedules, speakers, restaurant guides, social integration, and more and I do think that they succeed with a great product…I would also throw in that they are nice guys who know their stuff.
During our conversation, we touch on everything from their product and the current state of event apps to the future and what it holds for conferences going mobile.
Happy Halloween. Tonight is the time for meeting planners and eventprofs everywhere to do some trick or treating, have some good scares, and make dentist appointments.
But look out… You are about to see a GHXST….
GHXST (pronounced GHOST) is a dark artrock trio from New York City formed in 2010 by Christopher James and Shelley X after disbanding their previous Gothic noise band. Drummer Nathan Gray left school in San Diego a few months later to join the new lineup, adding powerful live percussion to the band’s stylish and chaotic sound.
This band reminds me of groups that I used to jam in the late eighties, early nineties. Groups like Ministry, Shriekback, and My Life with Trill Kill Kult…. I think that most of my meeting planner friends will find this tune surprisingly excellent…. Anyway, it is really good for Halloween.
I love Gmail. If you did not know, Gmail is a little email client from a small California company called Google. You may have heard of them….. they do some techie type stuff with that internet thing that is going around….perhaps the interwebs will catch on with meeting planners…but until then, let me tell you a little more about this Gmail thingy.
