Last year when I first conceived of the Westchester Digital Summit , I thought we would have about 30 executives stuffed into a Marriott talking about social media for a few hours and that would be the end of that. As the event began to evolve I decided to push myself. We booked one of the largest venues in all of Westchester, and we cast a wide net sourcing our phenomenal speakers & panelists.
By thinking big, we created the biggest digital event in the history of Westchester County, and instead of being small and fizzling out we were named by Forbes Magazine as one of “4 Lesser-Known Conferences That Deserve Your Attention in 2013.”
We had 775 digital executive attendees and included speakers from Facebook, IBM, Ogilvy, Target, Heineken, L’Oreal, Fox Business, The Pivot Conference, Big Fuel, Publishers Clearing House, Poppin, Petflow.com, Rue La La, and Hubspot and Gary Vaynerchuk keynoted the event.
Behold the magic of thinking big.
I reached as far as I could and most of what I could conjure up in my little pea brain actually came true.
Next year, we’ve reached to go big and bold once again. The upcoming event will take place at the Ritz Carlton in White Plains, on May 15th, 2014
Below you can see that I’ve created a dream list of speakers I would love to have speak at the summit, and I’m asking you, my social media network to please help. If you, or someone you know has any contact with any of the speakers or their booking agent, please contact me [email protected] as soon as possible.
Let’s think big together.
