Our annual Small Town State of NOW (formerly known as 140 Characters Conference) is just a few weeks away, November 8, 2012.
The lineup of speakers is beyond outstanding this year:
- Both big ag and small ag have their own panels and a chance to share their story.
- How do we incubate our youth in small towns to become tomorrow’s great minds? Nick Barron and Ron Bronson will both talk about parts of this.
- Multiculturalism and diversity are hot topics in some small towns, and Doug Mitchell and Jon Powell will talk about different parts of that.
- “I’m farming and I grow it” made a big hit on YouTube, and Greg Peterson is joining us.
- Bringing the world into your small town with tourism projects online will be the subject for Deb Brown and Leslie McLellan
- And I’ve got a little rant on whether small towns have a future, if we have time!
Some big names from social media and the tech world are joining us, including a few new faces:
- Aliza Sherman, author of 10 tech books and advocate for women in technology
- Simon Salt, author of Social Location Marketing and founder of IncSlingers
- Jason Kintzler, founder of Pitch Engine, a global tech company based in Wyoming
Those are just a few highlights – and you can register here.
