You are invited to attend:


SMBMSP #44 - Interactive Project Management & More!
A Conversation with the Geek Girls Guide

Friday, March 30, 2012 from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Interactive project management can be difficult to figure out. While the work entails elements of software development, marketing, and advertising, it's neither purely technical nor traditional "agency" work. Enter the Geek Girls. They literally wrote the book on it (available from Peachpit/New Riders in April, pre-order on Amazon)!

Geek Girls GuideSince 2008, the Geek Girls Guide (aka Nancy Lyons and Meghan Wilker) have been sharing their unique perspective on the Interactive industry, demystifying technology for non-technical audiences and generally owning every stage they appear on. They speak on topics ranging from social media to brand management to company culture.

Join us for an intimate conversation with this two-some. We'll cover the new book and get their opinion on a variety of other hot topics. Of course there will plenty of time for your questions as well.
