Geoff Livingston Creates Buzz in Memphis
September 23, 2008
Monday night, Geoff Livingston, author of Now is Gone and his PR blog, “The Buzz Bin,” met for a tweetup at Quetzal cafe in downtown Memphis. Attendees included everyone from seasoned Social Media veterans, to several fresh faces looking to see what the web has to offer their business.
Despite the excitement surrounding Geoff’s attendance, the evening took on a very relaxed tone as the crowd mixed through the room networking, finding familiar faces, and engaging the featured guest in conversations about the state of the blogosphere and the benefits of Social Media for business.
As the evening progressed, the tweetup culminated in a Geoff becoming the centerpiece of a group discussion, moderated by LunaWeb’s Dave Barger, where an eager group shared their ideas and questions about Social Media, while the Washington D.C. based PR and blogging guru addressed each topic, drawing from his own experience for examples and anecdotes.
The event was a huge success for LaunchMemphis and a great experience for all of the attendees. Upcoming on the Social Media horizon is the Socia Media Breakfast on October 1st at the Crescent Club. The breakfast is open to everyone! See details on the Meetup page.
