ARIANNA HUFFINGTON: CLOSING KEYNOTE, FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2009

Nancy Myrland LMA Conference Tweet Summary 0 Comments

This is the TweetStream from the closing keynote address at the LMA Conference. Some who couldn’t attend mentioned it was difficult to follow the TweetStream at times because there was more than one session going on that same time.  For that reason, I will attempt to summarize each session by itself in this space.

Please keep in mind these are in reverse order, so you might want to start at the end and work your way up!  What a nice refresher of what was a wonderful, inspirational session by Arianna Huffington. Stay tuned as I gather and post additional session summaries in this space.  I’ve left a bit of the ancillary conversation as it is sometimes interesting to see the multi-tasking that takes place.  Enjoy!
