Last week I attended NMX for the first time. This is the conference formerly known as Blogworld.
I wasn't able to attend every single session (that would be impossible, because so many things are happening at the same time), but my experience was amazing nonetheless.
The highlight session for me was Michael Hyatt‘s talk about building a personal brand. While I have heard him speak on the subject before, he had some new thoughts and insights that were spot on. As always, Michael provided lots of concrete takeaways. I walked out of that one with a long to do list!
Everyone was raving about Scott Stratton‘s keynote, and it seems his most popular comment was that you should stop obsessing over your logo. Scott always manages to cloak brilliant insights with whip-smart humor.
I was particularly intrigued by the keynote session featuring Noah Shanok of Stitcher, Norm Pattiz of Podcast One, and the inimitable Leo Laporte. Their discussion of the future of podcasting, as well as the future of radio, was fascinating, funny, and uplifting all at the same time.
I was delighted that my friend Cliff Ravenscraft picked up a podcast award.
My favorite session? The one I was part of, course. Seriously, I had a wonderful time sharing the stage with my friends Cliff, Dan Miller, and Michael Hyatt. I was privileged to be included in a group of such high-caliber individuals.
