The Aprimo Marketing Summit 2011

The President of Find New Customers, a lead generation company, just returned from the Aprimo Marketing Summit in Florida, where I was host of the B2B track. Lots of fun, great people and superb speakers.

If I may, let me share some of the exciting happenings there.

Here’s Bill Godfrey, President of Aprimo, welcoming the attendees.

Then Lisa Arthur, Chief Marketing Officer, took the stage and talked with some important guests from companies such as Avaya, Bank of America and CapGemini.

I had the pleasure of hosting the B2B track, such as this roundtable session with Jeff Pedowitz of the Pedowitz Group, Andre Pino of Forrester and Jonathan Block of SiriusDecisions.

B2B Experts

We had fun too. One night a Beatles knock-off band called “The Fab Four” performed. Much fun and dancing was had.

We also had some superb keynotes, including a hilarious Jeffrey Hayzlett, Celebrity CMO. “No one will die!” and the pheasant story was gut-busting.

We also had the guru Seth Godin via satellite from the TED conference. (Very funny, but a fly kept landing on Seth’s head as he talked!)

And I had an awesome view from my room.

I’d also like to give thanks to some great folks at Aprimo, like Lisa Arthur, Paige O’Neill, Jeff Chamberlain, Joel Reuter, Katie Dafoe, and Barb Cady. Thanks for inviting the B2B lead generation company Find New Customers to your great event.

Please note the the Aprimo Marketing Summit 2012 will be held in Las Vegas. Mark your calendars.
