Speaking gigs: SouthWired, October 2014

August 24, 2014


I’m heading back to Atlanta in October for Digital Atlanta. Except now, it’s called SouthWired, a conference in its 5th year with some 1,200 expected to attend.

My talk will be on the fourth day of this 5-day event and it’s brand new: “Content Curation for Smarties: Know Everything All the Time.”

The official summary:

Good marketers share their expertise. Great marketers share everyone else’s. Consultant Wade Kwon shows the most efficient methods of content curation. The award-winning writer and editor has made a career of gathering news from communities and sharing it with print and online audiences. Learn how expert curation actually puts you and your brand at the center of attention. Discover how to turn simple streams of information into powerful tools to dominate SEO, social and viral.

I love curation, and I’m excited to share my secrets of efficient news gathering and distribution. My talk is part of the marketing track, one of 10 tracks throughout the week. Other tracks include social media, mobile, UX (user experience), health technology and finance technology.

(I’ll have a specific time and date for my session soon.)

The session takes place at 3 p.m. EDT Oct. 9.

My friends Deb Krier and Rebecca Morrow are among the 142 speakers on the lineup. Deb’s topic is “Social Securities: How to Utilize Social Media Without Losing Compliance,” and Rebecca’s topic is “From Tellers to Technology — How to be Found on the Web.”

SouthWired runs Oct. 6-10 at Atlantic Station. Tickets are $50 and available online.

I’ll see you in Atlanta!
