UPDATING THE ASPEN CONFERENCE

I finally got around to reading Jeff Jarvis’s book, What Would Google DoChris Sacca (ex-Googler turned investor) had suggested it to me a while back and am now mad at myself for not picking it up sooner.  It inspired me to re-think the Aspen Conference.

For over 15-years, the Aspen Conference has had the privilege of hosting some of the most provocative and timely speakers (Seth Godin, Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Moore, Chris Sacca, etc), but what truly makes it special are those who attend.  The Aspen Conference is a collaborative effort.  Just ask anyone from our family (community). 

This December, we have discussed moving the conference from Aspen to Park City (one flight vs. two), recruiting new blood, changing the format, and with inspiration for Jeff Jarvis…having YOU decide almost everything that happens. 

Please send me any and all ideas related to a collaborative conference.  This will be your conference and you will decide everything from agenda topics to guest speakers, to what hotels…even the new name.   

Our dates this year are December 9-12.  Please write back…give input…tell me what you want.

Thanks,

Jim
