Power Outage at MarketingSherpa

Power outage

Blogging here from MarketingSherpa Email Summit. Just a quick post to show the effects of the blackout we had (California-style). The hotel staff gave us glow sticks to guide us through the dark passageways to the bathrooms. Colleague Ursula Chan & Gavin Handley of KodakGallery is here with her really ineffective glow stick! We had about an hour of no power, which caught us at lunch downtown Miami, then back in the conference hall. What do marketers talk about when the powerpoints are shut down? Not email! It disrupted the email awards and final session, and I heard some 1 on 1 consultations were cancelled due to the darkness, but that’s all.

  1. Thanks to all of you that made it our presentation in the dark. We laugh now, because some of us in our building like to work in the dark. To present in the dark was just an off-shoot of that. We were very excited and honored to be a part of the conference. Hopefully next year, we can share with you what we learned at the 2008 conference. If we can present under that kind of pressure, anything is possible. We hope you were able to take away something very meaningful from our presentation.
