Everything connects at Amplify

AmplifyLast week I attended AMP’s biannual innovation and thought leadership festival, Amplify.

As usual, the speaker lineup was first class.

For those who couldn’t make it, I have linked to the recordings of most sessions below. For the sake of convenience I have organised them under three broad categories: Innovation, Social Media and Mobile. These categories are somewhat arbitrary and they blur to varying degrees.

As this year’s tagline states, everything connects!

    Sharing knowledge across boundaries certainly increases wisdom collectively! So much to learn and give. Everybody at the conference from AMP staff to distinguished speakers brought value to the event.

    It has been the most productive week in terms of learning for me within time span of my life of almost 46 (!) years.

    Thank you to the amazing @maverickwoman AKA Annalie Killian who has made this amazing event possible together with her supporters to which I was honored to be part of :-)
