Martin Ferro-Thomsen, Founder & CEO of Conferize:
Busy times ahead as I’ve been invited to a bunch of great conferences and speaking gigs in April:
- 9-11 April: Red Herring Europe 100, Amsterdam. I’m presenting Conferize as one of the finalist, fingers crossed we’ll win. Red Herring is one of the most established brands in emerging technology and the list of finalists is daunting.
- 15 April: Nordic IT Powerhouse, Regional Growth Through Nordic/Baltic Collaboration, Stockholm. Am invited as a panelist to weigh in entrepreneurship and talent development in the Nordics. Follow the link to register (free). Background info here and here. As you may know this is a favorite topic of mine – The Nordics in the new millenium.
- 18 April: Iværk & Vækst, Aarhus, Denmark. Keynoting about my entrepreneurial background (Danish). Will be exciting to meet with successful entrepreneurs outside my normal circles – and to be welcomed by former news host Paula Larrain.
- 18-19 April: Mesh#4, Oslo. I’m exited to check out the startup scene in Norway, hosted by the Mesh people who also run a hot co-working space (invite only). Am hoping it’ll be somewhat like a Nordic version of F.ounders, which I’ve attended twice with great pleasure. I’ll be keynoting about the importance of innovation.
And finally a small rant: Sadly not all of these events are on Conferize yet and are not even using a dedicated (unique!) #hashtag.
Even the best tech conferences still struggle to set up the simplest strategy for social media and content marketing. Good news is that Conferize can help in doing that.
