Jeff Pulver of Pulver.Tv and more, has been hosting social media breakfasts all over the country. These breakfasts don’t end up just being a bunch of geeks sitting around drinking coffee and telling bad jokes though.
No one gets to sit idle and twiddle their thumbs anymore. Nope, Jeff involves everyone in live social networking. Social networking could be as basic as everyone saying their name and job, but Jeff has created a tool to make that interaction so much more interesting. It’s the Jeff Pulver Personal Social Networking Toolkit.
Jeff has put together a patent pending kit to make meetups all about the networking but without the fancy web tools. The kit isn’t anything high tech, and components could be picked up at just about any drug store, mart or office supply stop.
So what’s in the kit? You’ll need to visit here to find out, but I can give you a hint. It involves lunch bags and stickers. One can just imagine the fun.
I’m planning on making some of these kits up for the next Social Media Club St. Louis or St. Louis Bloggers meetup. They’ll make great ice breakers for sure.
And on that note, what is your local group doing to foster networking during meetups? Name tags alone? Conversation starter cards? Presentations? Pass the URL?
I’d love to hear your ideas. You can share them here in the comments, drop me a tweet (@tojosan), or leave me a voice mail at 636-486-4723.
The SOBCon08 contest is going well. But I could still use your help. Anywhere you see a SOBCon08 link, all you have to do is click. The clicks count as votes. The blogger with the most votes by March 15th wins admission and hotel cost. This prize totals about $750. You can put me there. Thanks.
