SOBCon 09 – The ROI of relationship

sobcon-goingIs it possible to calculate the ROI of relationship? Is this something like calculating your Whuffie in the bank? One thing is clear the SOBCon 09 will be all about this subject.

Liz Strauss – Successful blogger – is organising this event for the 3rd time. A great event where you will not just sit and listen to the presentations. There is work to do. You will work with a small group on the subject that was just presented.

Liz came up with a great list of speakers for the weekend op 1-3 May. I want to name a few for you:
