You can read about the fantastic speakers; Phillipa Davies (@mindhiver), Ian Cleary (@IanCleary) and Mark Schaefer (@markwschaefer) on the Oi Conference site. I’d also recommend looking at this review of #Oiconf13 by the incredible @MrTonyDowling, who is behind the whole thing.
There was a great deal of activity following the conference with examples of people putting learning into action. I’m happy to say I’ve also had a go.
Working with incredibly generous Helen Reynolds (@HelReynolds) we sat down at a different conference we were both speaking at and recorded our key learning points from Oi! Conference 2013. Here they are, hope you enjoy our 6min podcast.
So, what’s the PONT?
- A recording seems to be a quicker method of sharing content than a traditional blog post (I’m sure it will be once I’ve cracked the technology).
- We are hoping that it is a more effective method of sharing (the Jury is still out on that one).
- I still have lots to learn. It would have been a good idea to have tested the technology before jumping in with both feet (so unlike me).
