Cheers, All, and you so knew that was coming, what, eh?
Yes, still on the other side of the pond and we must say that the British Airways Face to Face program is/was an absolutely stellar event from beginning to end and would highly recommend that, if you’re planning to do business internationally, you enter the competition later this year. Winners are flown to London on a BA chartered plane, and don’t expect to grab some sleep, as it’s literally non-stop networking – and you haven’t lived until you’ve done a pitch at 30,000 feet. Talk about a captive audience, and you do make a lot of connections – heaven for compulsive networkers like yours truly – not to mention FITs (Friends in Transit). BTW, it’s not just a popularity contest. You can submit either a 2-minute video or an essay and there is an online voting process open to one and all. However, BA does have their own judging panel and choose a certain number of winners based on compelling content. Just FYI. Oh, and did we mention that BA will then fly you on to any destination in the world where the airline flies – business class, and admittedly, does make it difficult to go back to steerage.
Speaking of which – it’s Social Media Week across the world this week – February 7-11, or if you’re in one of the nine participating cities, anyway, including NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO, ROME, PARIS, TORONTO, SÃO PAULO, LONDON, HONG KONG, ISTANBUL, plan on attending. I’ll be at Hub, King’s Cross, if you happen to be in London this week.
