Kristina Halvorson in Seattle

NEW INFO: Kristina Halvorson! In Seattle! Talking content! WOOOOO! In her words: "There will be no canned presentations on this night. I'm up for a roundtable-ish Q&A session, and then I am up for drinking Manhattans. NO. POWERPOINT. Can't wait!!" Here's hoping you can get a Manhattan at Mama's. (I'm only sad we're too big a group for their Elvis room. Sniff.) They prefer one check. Bring cash to cover your share. It'll all work out. EARLIER INFO: Nick said: "I think it would be great to have Kristina come out to Seattle to speak at the Seattle Content Strategy meetup. She has some great canned talks on the topic ranging from short 30 minute lectures to 1/2 day workshops." I emailed Kristina, and she's very much in favor of getting together for drinks and talking content. I'm putting this on the calendar as a placeholder; details can be fleshed out later. This is the date and time (evening) that works for her -- she's in town for An Event Apart. UPDATE: Kristina asked if we could do this Monday night rather than Tuesday. Since her name is in the meetup's title, I said yes. Next I'll figure out a spot near the Bell Harbor Conference Center on the waterfront.

    You'll never get another experience like that. Sorry, you missed it. The information was so valuable, but the form was the antithesis of a conference ballroom. Who else can pull off a raucous dinner party, no Powerpoint, special guest star Jared Spool and margaritas? Nobody, that's right. And you wind up feeling smarter leaving than when you went in. Blame the margaritas? Perhaps.

    Great event. Kristina had a lot of useful insight and getting Jared Spool in the bargain was a treat. Against all odds, Mama's turned out to be a decent location. Thanks again. See you next time.

    I so enjoyed meeting everyone and talking shop with you all. Thanks to James for organizing and corralling Kristin. Thanks to Kristin and her sidekick for such generosity of time and insight. I learned a lot and am jazzed to keep this conversation going. Look forward to next time!

    What a wonderful and charming person. The informal Q&A was excellent and Kristina was definitely a crowd pleaser. It was great that she took time out of her busy schedule to come and speak at our Meetup and it was definitely worth attending.

    Great energy, insightful-yet-informal remarks by Kristina; was a boon to have Jared Spool in the peanut gallery as well. Excellent meet and greet opportunities. The only reason I ranked it "good" and not "great" was the decibel level of the room during dinner. Way WAY too loud. Otherwise, everything rocked! Thanks James for organizing.

    Kristina was awesome! She made sure everyone had a chance to ask questions and she provided lots of insight. It was great to hear about topics she's addressed in her AEA presentations without actually attending the conference. She used some technical gibberish that might have made folks who are currently making the transition from copy writing to content strategy a little confused, but hopefully her talk provided some incentive to get up to speed in this new process.

    Kristina was great, the venue was great, and the peanut gallery (Jared Spool) was great too.

    Great Q&A. Kristina is always a riot when she presents. Glad to have her in Seattle! :D

    My expectations were low, since we were going to meet in a noisy bar in a small cramped warren of rooms. I hadn't expected to be able to hear a thing. But we all crammed into the room and Kristina was incredibly generous with her Q & A. The group listened to each questioner and the response from the crowd was warm and enthusiastic. I learned from peoples' questions. For me the most exciting part was hearing Kristina describe the process of self-reinvention she and her company have successfully been through over the past year. At a time when reinvention is a necessity for so many people, I found it very inspiring.

    I really appreciate Kristina's generosity in sharing her time and experience with us basically for the love of the game. And thank you Kristina for bringing Jared Spool along. This meetup feeds my soul!
