Knocking down Silos Continues!

If you were one of the 161 participants at Knocking Down Silos at the Living Arts Centre on April 23, thanks so much for coming...and this posting is for you!

I just finished the book "Wikinomics" (how mass collaboration changes everything) and I would like to try something new.

I want to provide you with an interactive way to continue to provide value to people in attendence who you didn't meet.
Please click "comments" below and post a comment:

- tell us a little bit about who you are and what you got out of the KDS evening.

- tell us what you do for fun on weekends

- tell us your greatest challenge so we can help you (be specific eg use a top 10 list)

- offer to help the rest of us

Then check back on this blog to help others and to see who is offering to help you. (you may or may not choose to leave your contact information - everyone at the seminar should have your email and phone number).

The Summary PDF for the evening is here. More on strategic networking and questions to ask when people introduce you to folks on your " hit list are here.

There's only so many people...

Kelly Osborne, as quoted by Sarah Hampson in the Globe and Mail 25 March, 2007:

And I'd pretend that I was big and tough by having a big mouth and telling everyone to f*** off, but there's only so many people that you can tell to f*** off and say you hate before there's no one left, and you realize, well, maybe it's me that's the asshole, not them.
