SMX Sydney Keynote Speaker Announcement
Today we are proud to announce our two Keynote speakers for SMX Sydney 2011.
First cab off the rank on Day One (Thursday April 14) is Danny Sullivan, Danny is Editor-In-Chief of Search Engine Land, the leading news and analysis blog for search marketing professionals and is a creative force behind SMX, he has been involved in search for more than 10 years.
Our Keynote speaker for Day Two (Friday April 15th) is Stefan Weitz, Stefan is the Director of Bing and is charged with working with people and organisations across the industry to promote and improve Search technologies.
Coincidentally our Keynote with Stefan occurs on what is now know as #bingfriday, this was a term that Greg Boser came up with in our final session at SMX Melbourne in November last year, in short he suggested that we all use Bing on Fridays to break the Google habit, hence the name – #bingfriday.
Stefan’s Keynote will be broken into two parts, a a short 20 minute formal presentation on the confluence of Social data and Search. This will be followed by a “fireside” chat with Stefan, Danny Sullivan & Barry Smyth.
We are very excited to have both of these Industry Thought Leaders involved in the 2011 event.
SMX Sydney and SMX Elite Agendas
This years agenda has been our most challenging yet and we have taken a lot of time to build this one so that we get it right. In order to make sure that we keep up to speed with more advanced SEO practitioners we have added an additional day of training with the SMX Elite Pass, this gives us more room in our Thursday and Friday agendas for more mainstream content.
Please remember that the content is programmed for the Thursday and Friday agendas with people that have at least 3+ years of experience in search and social media marketing. If you have been in online for less than than this you will find the content to lean more towards an advanced level, where as if you have been around a while you will find that the content is of an intermediate nature.
If you have been in search for eons and SEO is you thing then you will find that the SMX Elite Pass option is where you want to be. We only have eight spots left for Elite.
Check out the agendas for all three days and make up your own mind:
Given that you are on the site you may already know we have four events that take place under the same roof, late last year we decided to take the step of rebranding all of these under one name – Online Marketer.
As such we now have a new website that all that content now lives under, special thanks goes out to our Brisbane based Web Developer – iReckon for helping us get this up and running through the tough times of the floods. If you need any help in building a new website from scratch using WordPress or any other technology then these are your guys, cant recommend them highly enough.
