Another great example of how social media is a terrific catalyst for building relationships. While I’ve emailed and spoken on the phone with both many times (and interviewed Pete for FIR), I’d not met either David or Pete before, yet I knew each of them because of their blogs. Indeed, finding each other at our arranged meeting location (the brasserie in the American Hotel in Amsterdam) was simplicity itself – we all recognized each other through the photos on our blogs.
So we enjoyed some great conversation that embraced some wide topics.
Taking a leaf out of David’s book, I video-interviewed each of them with my Nokia N70 – David on social media in the PR profession, Pete on his impressions of the Emerce event in Rotterdam yesterday. (In a neat twist, David interviewed me as well as Pete.)
You can watch each short video below. For some reason, both videos are a bit jittery although the audio is very clear.
Enjoy seeing and hearing from two very smart people in the PR and marketing professions.
