I love doing things online. I’m very practical about it; the main reason is that it allows me to spend time with my family instead of getting up at some godawful hour and eating a poor breakfast in a dank hotel with a load of suits.
So any opportunity to network online is ok by me. Fora, blogging, twitter, chat, webinars, unconferences, LinkedIn, you’ll find me there making connections. Making connections is what I do, which is why I set up the Architects Twitter League earlier in the year, and @UKConstruction last month. I wanted to find out who else in the construction and property industries was doing these online things I loved doing so much, so that I could connect them up.
So why the big green button on the Right? It’s a present from Phil Clark (aka @ZeroChamp) who has invited me to be a Sustainability Now Champion – helping support and encourage attenders to the Sustainability Now Virtual Event which is taking place on 13 & 14 May. Phil’s got this idea that I’m good at getting people to connect, and maybe I can do this before, during and after the conference, joining with the other Champions to help make it as productive as possible for everyone.
So I said, ‘I get to connect people online? Fab!’
If you’re interested in Sustainability Issues, particularly in regard the Construction Industry, do take some time to come along. Its a free event, you can come and go as you wish, but there will be plenty to do. Last year’s event attracted 1800 active participants.
Hope you go and register, check out the features of the show and the topics we’ll be debating, and I’ll see you inside. Looking forward to connecting you…
