Absolutely. I really enjoyed it. Feel free to make me put my time where my mouth is, as I would LOVE to work on a non CI track, e.g. work with folks in the Business Development Institute, Project Management, Pricing, Proposal Management, Strategic Planning, Marketing, etc., to bring in new blood. But then, you can put me where you need me. Claudia -
Great conference, August - I just wanted more. More networking, more time to get to sessions. You and Derek did a fantastic job and I am sure 2010 will be even better. I'd love to see some of the suggestions from the active dialogs baked into next year, such as a track that consists of topics outside of the CI community but contains information of use to CI professionals.
Thank you for recommending the TED's video of Jonathan Haidt's lecture. I am reading some essays from Russell Kirk and just finished one on Burke. It was encouraging to be able to appreciate Haight's comment on Burke all the more. I have some acquaintances that relish political matters and I shall be forwarding the link to them.
At all. You deserve all the kind words for your brilliant work.
I do have some topics that I would like to suugest.
Among them let me share a couple:
#1 Challenges to implement CI functions in SME's
#2 Sales Intelligence - how to leverage it and how to support your sales team
#3 - CI - Is it the same all over the world? How different? How similar?
Hope they are of interest to you.
All the best,

Great - looking forward to seeing you out west - do you have plans Wednesday evening - we're putting together a little dinner cruise?
Incidentally, Martha Matteo, Kieran Michael Brown and I put this NING up (literally yesterday) to provide a place for people to cover the SCIP meeting essentially, so if you plan to blog/podcast onsite feel free to feed that into the NING network and/or invite others to share. Since SCIP really isn't setup for this, we're hoping we can try and jumpstart some of the social web angle with them this way.
I'm planning to add the SCIP conference agenda here so that we can do a little opinion/voting on particular sessions that are blog-worthy by topic. I believe there are NING "gadgets" available from OpenSocial to do that, but haven't hunted them down.
Finally, the overarching idea is to alert people interested in CI that they should show up in SD next month and those that don't that they should come NEXT year because of what they missed. We want to try and grow the pie by reaching outside the standard membership channels that SCIP is specifically designed to speak to. I think you could help a lot with that August!
