Some of the best and brightest social media marketers and commentators gathered in Sydney last night for an informal drinks and dinner including an appearance from US marketer Joseph Jaffe.
Originally intended to be a Jaffe meet-up while he is in Australia, local bloggers and marketers took it as an opportunity to put a face to the name of many of the online identities involved in the Aussie social media conversation.
Amongst those present were: Julian Cole, Gordon Whitehead, Gavin Heaton, Jenni Beattie, Scott Drummond from Marketing Magazine, Joeseph Jaffe, Katie Chatfield, Zoe Scaman, Ian Lyons and more. (Sorry if I left anyone out).
The enthusiasm, ideas and war stories were infectious and it seems there are some exciting initiatives on the way with many of the participants, including new client campaigns and new business developments.
Best of all it was just nice to put the social into social media.
