Elite Retreat Friday Agenda (FINALLY!!)

by Jeremy Schoemaker on March 22, 2012 · 1 comment

The Elite Retreat full agenda is now set!

I apologize for not getting this out sooner but securing a venue for our 3rd day (Friday the 27th) has been,  to say the least,  challenging.

I worked with the Google Adwords team and they were accommodating but they could not commit any actual Google Adwords staff since most of their account representatives are in NYC. So it would have been more of a dog and pony show with people who can’t actually give any value.

So I put out the (ShoeMoney) bat signal to friends in SF to get some ideas of where we could go.  I talked to everyone from VMware, LinkedIn, SalesForce, and others.  They were pretty cool but I just didn’t think that they were up to Elite Retreat caliber for giving value in the form attendees are used to.

The most successful trip we have ever taken was to Facebook a couple years ago.  They were awesome and gave us some real insights to the platform.  I know after that 2 of our attendees were the biggest advertisers on Facebook’s platform spending 5-6million a month and getting a great return.  This was due to the personal relationships made.

That set the bar pretty high… but I really want to recreate that experience.  Find a company that could give our attendees amazing value.

So I am really happy to announce that we are going to StumbleUpon!!!!   I have been meeting with their team and they are *just* getting read to re-launch their self service platform.

I told StumbleUpon that our group is going to expect some real life case studies and some AHAH! moments for our attendees.

I am super pumped and I feel like as a whole this could be a really big opportunity to be on the cusp of a very underutilized advertising platform.

So our schedule on Friday will be:

  • 11:30 – 12:00 tour of the StumbleUpon Offices.
  • 12:00- 12:45 catered in lunch with CEO and StumbleUpon staff
  • 1-2:30 Presentation and case studies.
  • 2:30-3:00 Q and A and one on one with the team.

I REALLY want to thank Brent Csutoras for playing a major role in making this happen!!!

This awesome trip is just the icing on the cake though as we have such an amazing line up of speakers this year… not to mention the attendees and networking.

As of right now we ONLY have 2 spots left!!

See you there!!!!!!!!!

Really really wish I could make it to the event, but will be in Hong Kong for those dates. I am sure you guys will have a great time and really happy that StumbleUpon came trough as I think it is an amazing opportunity for people to get an inside view of one of my favorite social sites.
