Thanks to Liz Strauss for forwarding me an invitation to Jeff Pulver’s social networking breakfast in Chicago this morning.
The inventor of the personal networking tool kit, Jeff is also the author of The Pulver Report. I got my first issue a few minutes ago. Packed with information about technology and social media, this is one report I’ll open and read right away.
After years of networking with other creative types and Chamber groups, the tech scene is new to me. And, this is only my second tech networking event – ever, but it won’t be my last. I told Jeff this morning I’ll see him when comes back to Chicago for breakfast in July. To see how much fun we had, check out this Jeff Pulver breakfast video that aired live this morning – you’ll see me walking in.
As soon as we arrived, we each got a personal networking tool kit. We used stickers as tags for others and Post-its to write on people’s walls [aka a blank nametag]. In addition to our name, we also needed to write a personal tagline.
My personal tagline
Communications pioneer, exploring new frontiers
A few of tags others wrote about me
PR galore, authentic
People I met who gave me their cards
