See You at #CommsWeekNY on October 19?

Are you interested in communications, and will you be in New York on October 19? I’m thrilled to join a great panel and some other esteemed speakers that morning for Communications Week, and I’d love you to join. Tickets are $25, but I may have a little pull with the organizers to invite a few Serial Marketer readers, so contact me if you’d like a pass (no guarantees, but I’ll try).

There are a lot of other fantastic events that week, so check the full agenda at commsweek.com. Let me know if you’re hitting up my event or any other.
