Hi Martin
Thanks for your concern over my networking potential!
Yes, it was a very different experience from what I am used to. As a B2B editor for many years, I would have spent my time going round speaking to people, mostly those I know. But as the digital director at a conference run by one of the many parts of the company, I did not have that responsibility. Instead I had the opportunity to try something out. I just zoned out into the live blogging. It was amazing.
What was interesting was how those who were up to speed with social media signed up to follow me on Twitter in the 24 hours after the event. So I ended up networking with those I did not know, something I rarely did as a high-profile editor.
Try it some day. You'll end up with an amazing experience (though not to be repeated too often!)
Have a good weekend.
