SMX Advanced 2011 Day 1 – My Thoughts

As the dust settles on the SMX Advanced London conference for another year I wanted to give my honest opinion on the conference and whether it really deserves to be called “Advanced!” My opinion is unfortunately based on one day’s attendance at the conference, but I feel that is enough to have an opinion on the conference title.

Although I am going to discuss the conference I wanted to write it a blog based on the entire day which included the eventful journey to SMX Advanced. In the coming days I hope to get hold of the slides that were presented and provided a post based on my takeaways from each presentation.

 

The day began with an early wake up call to allow Marcus & I enough time to get a taxi to the station. On arrival to the station I provided the first comedy moment of the day by tripping up the steps, to the amusement of Marcus and our fellow commuters (great start to the day L).

SEOptimise @ Internet World 2011

Today was the first day of this year’s Internet World Exhibition that SEOptimise have decided to trade at, with the sole intention of improving both brand visibility and the number of clients that we have on our books. As for first days this one had everything from an eventful drive to a comedy finish that actually came from me.

 

The day started with an eventful car drive with Carla Nadin that started a little bit later than scheduled although still early at 7am. After making steady progress down the M40 with the general car banter at that time in the morning, we eventually hit the rush hour traffic in London around 8am. During the London leg of the drive it became apparent that if we were to get anywhere we had to drive like Londoners, so the famous Roman saying became “When in London, drive like a Londener”.
