The Power of Us: What Happens at SOBCon Doesn’t Stay at SOBCon

In #SOBCon, Non-Profit, Partnerships on August 20, 2010 at 9:23 am

It’s no secret that I consider SOBCon to be one of the most powerful conferences I’ve ever been to. I’ve written about what I learned there here, here and here.  It’s also no secret that I’ve been on sabbatical, although I’m not really on sabbatical anymore. I’ve been working away on a new project…which brings me to the point of this post.

I can’t say much about the new project that I’m working on other than it’s for the non-profit community and it’s with Chris Brogan. What I can say is the reason I’m working on this project can be traced back to a single conversation I had with Chris at this year’s SOBCon.

I know I’m not even close to being the only person who left the life-changing event that is SOBCon only to start a business relationship with someone they met there because of  a conversation that took place there. About a week ago I asked Liz Strauss if she and Terry kept track of all the projects that were born at SOBCon. She asked where we’d even start. I said let’s just ask everyone…so that’s what I’m doing.

If you’ve ever been to SOBCon and can trace a project or relationship’s beginnings back to a conversation you had there, tell me about it the comments section below. I’m going to curate all your stories and turn them into a nice, pretty presentation for Liz and Terry at SOBCon 2011. I think know we will all be blown away by what the “Do-Tank” has actually done.
