The 8th of October was probably the most enjoyable day I've had all year, which is saying something as I spent a day at Harry Potter World back in January... it was awesome. There was butter beer and everything... "How can #DigitalBuffet possibly top Warner Brother's mystical world of Witchcraft & Wizardry?" I hear you ask. Well, it just does.
1.The venue was superb 2. Nothing went horribly wrong (bar me throwing a small hissy fit before everyone arrived & some dodgy slide shenanigans - which I'll happily take the blame for) & 3. the attendees were decidedly awesome as were the speakers (slides below). After the whole thing was finished, I was left with a genuine warm & fuzzy feeling in my tummy, something that Mr Potter & his wizard chums failed to achieve.
So thank you.
Hoopla & Hubbub
If you missed out on Digital Buffet here's a brief glimpse of the DigiBuff buzz as well as some nice things folks had to say on twitter:
Thanks to Joe for his talk - Websites That Win: Refine Don't Redesign (slides to follow)
And Thanks to Martin for his talk - Reputation / Brand ? (Martin would prefer if we didn't make his slides public)
More Free Digital Treats
If you live in Bristol or the South West there's a bite size Digital Buffet event called Digital Gaggle just for you. Essentially it's a networking event minus any sort of dress code, zero selling & name badges with first names only. It's networking without any of the bullshit. We have a few drinks, bitch about work and listen to a talk from an inspiring speaker on something vaguely marketing-y for tips you can take back to the office and impress your boss with.
