Marketing Roadmaps - On the road and your "radio" dial
On the road again. Or at least your iTunes dial. Here's where I'll be in June.

New Comm Forum, blog move, Star-Ledger on Camp Baby
Just a few quick updates.
First, I will eventually get the slides from the Alumni panel at New Comm Forum up on the conference wiki, but for now, I've linked them here (PDF 2M). Thanks again to Jen McCLure, executive director of the Society for New Communications Research for supporting the panel and giving it such a nice slot on the program, and to the four alumni who shared their stories: Wendy Harman, Bob Siller, Doug Bardwell and Chris Turner.
Don't miss the Star-Ledger's story on Johnson's Camp Baby. No news in it for readers of this blog, but nice to see mainstream media do such a balanced blogging story.
Finally, Marketing Roadmaps will be moving to Word Press sometime this summer, but I promise to give plenty of warning and will run in parallel for at least a month. Thanks to everyone for their advice and words of encouragement.
SOCAP Social Media 101 Workshop
On Wednesday, I had the pleasure of giving a social media & blogging 101 workshop at the SOCAP (Society of Consumer Affairs Professionals in Business) International Symposium here in Boston.
Here are the slides for those attendees that want to download them. If you have trouble downloading just shoot me an email at email@example.com and I will email them to you.
If you are interested in the workshop for your organization, it lasts about two-hours, and focuses on the application of new media tools like blogs and Twitter to customer service and consumer affairs. Email me to discuss in more detail.
