LeadsCon Highlights

LeadsCon Blog Coverage Table of Contents:


So, I’m writing these blog posts on the plane returning from the first annual LeadsCon 2008 and I’m feverishly trying to capture all my reflections of this great show. Jay Weintraub exceeded everyone’s expectation with this fantastic gathering, and he was thanked at some point during almost every panel. A first-year conference with over 600 attendees is remarkable. I would not be surprised to see it double or even triple next year.

Now keep in mind as you read through that I was a hungry and eager deal-making CEO with my biz dev hat on while I was attending this conference, but I still made a deliberate effort to observe almost every panel session and presentation. But as you can imagine, I was often distracted by potential deal-making and related activities. I guess I say this as a disclaimer that these blog posts are intended to be just some highlights that I witnessed through my own eyes, and it is not intended to be comprehensive news article covering every detail and fact-checking every reference. However, if any LeadsCon attendees see anything significant that I may have not witnessed or presented here, please by all means add to the discussion in the comments. If I unintentionally got anything dead wrong, please contact me and I can change it.

Now, onto the highlights…
