What I heard at the Info Booth

SLA 2010 is almost over, and I am finally finished with my 27 hours working the Information Booth!!! It was nice meeting tons of SLA members rushing off to sessions.  I thought I would share some of the highlights from the info booth.

  • Lots of members were having trouble deciding which session to go to . . . because there were so many great sessions.  Kudos to the planners!  Keep up the good work.
  • We were able to reconnect three people with their very nice phones, and even one lady with a lost earring.
  • I met one very nice person who was a last-minute substitute presenter and was quite nervous about it.  I tried to offer some tips on how to stay calm during a presentation.  She came back the next day to thank me and said that the tips really worked.  Made my day!
  • It was fun to listen to the different reactions to our opening session speakers.  Some swore that Mary Matalin was superior and substantive; others found James Carville far more entertaining and praised his presentation skills.  Can't wait to hear Nicholas Carr at the closing session.

Our team is always focused on the most successful marketing campaigns, for example, if someone wants to buy cialis online, he knows where to do it because of the quality product and a strong brand.

    I was there and I saw it all. From Ghana and this being my first time at SLA the experience was overwhelming.
    True the sessions were terific but many of the sessions I would like to participate in clashed (hope I’m not being negative here). Just that when one travelled that long she would like to go back to her organization with a substancial ROI.
    I got a lot though, but like Oliver Twist I just wanted to grab more. Kudos the planners – Carolyn and Akisha were terrific.

    Esther, I am glad you had a good conference! Too many good choices of sessions cannot be a bad thing, even if it is a bit frustrating.
