Always a good meet up. Mark is a great guy - I have listened to him in podcasts, interviews and learnt LOADS from his blog. While entertaining his talk was very middle of the road and nothing new for me or a large section of the audience. To stand out like he should Mark should push the envelope when speaking about this subject.

I have to acknowledge Mark is a great speaker, with convincing storytelling abilities; good that he wants to spread the word about online influence but I found he overrates Klout.
Clearly he's sponsored by Klout and fine if he's promoting it, what is really dangerous is to put it as the ultimate tool for online influence, which couldn't be more far from reality, creating wrong expectations on people that is not well versed in social media topics.
I was really surprised he couldn't answer convincingly the most obvious question it could possibly arrive given his book's title: how to connect Klout and influence with business metrics > ROInfluence vs ROInvestment, which is absolutely basic if you're trying to use social influence to benefit your brand.
It'd be great to invite him again but not as a "star speaker", but as part of a discussion panel with other social media influence leading minds.
