Just wanted to send a quick not thank any and all who came out for last weeks "Harnessing the Power of Social Media" event held at the University of Tampa last Tuesday.

Unfortunately I was unable to attend the event due to an unexpected bout of food poisoning the day before that kept me hospitalized for three days, but from what I heard, it was a great event!

A very special thank you to all of the speakers who took the time out of their day to come and impart their wisdom in this growing area. They are as follows

Douglass Karr - President, DK New Media

Kevin Hourigan - President/CEO, Bayshore Solutions

Anne Fischer - Director of Lifestyle Digital Marketing, Seaworld Parks & Entertainment

Tom Wagner - Public Relations Manager, The Florida Aquarium

Carri Bright - Communications Lead, IZEA

Travis Claytor & Dianne Jacob - Tampa Bay & Company

Another series very special thank you goes out to Dr. Judith Washburn, Dr. Michael Weeks, Angie Johnson, and Deidre Dixon, of the University of Tampa TECO Center for Leadership for helping to host the event.
