It’s been a while and so much has been happening! First let’s start with a few special thanks. This past month I had the pleasure of presenting to two different wonderful groups in TX. First was the Dallas Executive Women’s Networking Group. Talk about an amazing group of DFW women! Thanks so much to Therese Tetzel from Business Modern for setting that up. Additionally, we are looking forward to working with the Business Modern team in the near future!
The second presentation was for the Preston Trail Job Network. Blane Cox asked if I would present to his group on the value of Twitter for the job search process. We had a great turnout and the audience was definitely engaged and ready to learn. I have received so many great e-mails from audience members since the presentation and I look forward to the chance to help them out in the future! If you are looking for a pool of talent in the DFW area, definitely check them out.
I am also extremely proud to announce a few more dates to put on the calendar for 2009! On August 27th I will be presenting at the AMA Fort Worth Executive Luncheon. I’m definitely looking forward to meeting the Fort Worth crowd. October brings the 2009 Annual QRCA Conference and I’ll have the opportunity to help share with my colleagues on how SM is influencing the market research industry. Last year was my first time to attend the conference and I had an amazing time!! The QRCA group is such a great group of peeps and one that knows how to have a great time as well. November is going to be an exciting time as well. I will be making the trip with my friend and fellow QRCA member Abby Leafe to present in Marrakech Morocco at the 2009 ESOMAR Summit. ESOMAR is a great organization that really helps to set a standard in market research and having the opportunity to visit Morocco is ridiculously exciting.
Changes and Updates
Coming up in days is something we are VERY excited about – the launch of our new website! We have been reviewing and testing the pre-launch site has been work, but it was definitely worth the wait as Singularity Design has done such an amazing job. I know you will enjoy it and we are looking forward to your feedback.
Having a career that puts me on the road and in the air quite often gives me the opportunity to meet wonderful people all over the world. Recently, I have tried to meet with our online friends and followers in every city I visit. In the spirit of creating “real life” connections with those who I communicate with online, look for new updates titled “Spych In Real Life.” These updated will feature the great friends and people I get the chance to meet “In Real Life” on my travels. If we haven’t had the chance to connect online I look forward to it in the future. I love meeting our Facebook friends and Twitter followers!
More big changes for Spych in store for the future, and look for the launch announcement about the new website!
