Heading to Pubcon? We’d love to see you, or meet you if we haven’t yet, so look for Pearl, Sean, Philip, Amy, and Rhea (and perhaps an appearance by baby Liam).

You’ll find Rhea, beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 22, speaking at the following sessions:

  • Reputation Management: Monitoring your brand online (Tuesday, 10/22, 11:30am-12:40pm), with Michael Streko, co-founder and owner of KnowEm, LLC; and Melyssa St. Michael, vice president of search and emerging media for Rockfish; and

But really, it’s a busy schedule, so if you’re going to be there, please contact us ahead of time so that we can set up a time to talk.


Finally (for now), have you been to Burlington, Vermont, lately? If not, you’re missing out on a great town, and I imagine it’s especially beautiful there in November. So, don’t miss out as Troy represents at the Vermont Web Marketing Summit on November 14th. If you register before Oct. 7, you get the early bird special, so act fast! Rhea will be speaking, along with Matt Gerrior from Greane Tree Technology, also in Troy.
