News & Opinion: 8cr Pow Wow Adds Chris Guillebeau and Sally Hogshead
It's about authors on one hand, but on a deeper level, it's about people with ideas who want to help other people with their work and lives. Publishing plays a role in that, and so does branding, speaking, credibility, time management, media, networking, and many other things. It's great to have a big idea, but in order to have it do its good work, there's a lot to know (and people to know), and the Pow Wow has continuously provided that.
This year, we're adding a bit more to the mix. The insightful panels featuring experts in publishing, marketing, publicity, and speaking will be rounded out with individual presentations by two people who we think have captured the essence of idea spreading:
We're excited to have them involved. It's hard to imagine the Pow Wow becoming even better, but I think this will do the trick. Check out the full details here, and hopefully you can attend. Our special hotel discount ends in a matter of weeks, so take advantage of that by registering soon.
See you December!
