A Call for Speakers: Announcing @BrandsConf

Entrepreneur and all around mensch Jeff Pulver has announced a new conference:

@BrandsConf, a conference taking place in early December 2010 that will explore the “Humanization of Brands” and the underlying effects this is having on business.

If you are interested in speaking at: @BrandsConf, please submit your speaking proposals over at: http://brandsconf.com. The deadline for speaking proposals is: Friday, November 5th but the first to submit will be the first I consider for the event.  You can also feel free to please tweet speaker nominations/suggestions to #BrandsConf.

From his announcement:

After watching thousands of brands become alive on twitter, rather than just being an observer of such trends I thought the time was right to invite up to people to come forward and participate in the discussion.

With today’s “Call for Speakers” I am looking for creative, out-of-the-box thinkers to come forward and pitch me something relevant they would like to discuss from inside the respective worlds of the business segment they are operating in. Brands transcend business sectors and my hope is to have a variety of industries represented at our first event.

In the tradition of the #140Conf events, individual presentations will be 10 minutes long and panels will run 15 to 20 minutes.

The conference will explore a range of topics from best practices to the legal issues to the natural conflict of personal and corporate branding. Plus a wide range of related topics that I hope to hear from the people who come forward to speak at this conference. I’m looking for first-hand accounts of how the humanization of branding is being applied and the impact it is happening in across the business world. My goal is to bring together a great group of Characters to both lead and contribute to the discussions.

The take-aways from this event will provide the attending delegates knowledge, perspectives and insights to the next wave of effects the real-time Internet will have on brands and business.
