Wow. I’ve had a busy few days pulling together the last few bits and bobs for Small Business 2.0 which was held yesterday in London. I had really great (if knackering) day chairing one of the streams, meeting loads of people who run small businesses, exhibitors and old friends. About 400 hundred small business folks took the time on a sunny Saturday to learn more about the web could do for them.
Some highlights for me (and bear in mind I only saw half of the sessions):
– Will Wynne from Arena Flowers talking about SEO (search engine optimisation). Will has effectively built his business on SEO and really laid out the basics.
– Tony Neate from Get Safe Online is a really powerful speaker. And, despite his protestations to the contrary, he sacred me witless: I’ve taken quite a lot of his safety advice onboard already.
– Having a few nourishing ales with the old eBay Uni crowd: you know who you are!
Over the next week or so I’ll be posting some of my takeaways from the day and we’ll also be publishing the presentations and audio recordings on the official website.
