Blogging from the Showcomotion Conference: First day.
(UK/WORLD) First day at conference is like first day at primary school. You’re all a little nervous, trying to catch a glimpse of each others name badges without being obvious and sheepishly wandering round hoping for a friendly smile to instigate engagement, whilst a few ‘packs’ of individuals cling to those people they know.
At the registration drinks for the Showcomotion Children’s Media Conference things couldn’t be more different.
Maybe it was due to the heat of the venue or maybe because all ‘media types’ love to ‘greet’—whatever it was, I had no problems engaging and talking to many of the people.
I took the opportunity to do mini-interviews/podcasts with many of these people which you can listen to just by clicking the links below, starting with the Conference organiser, Greg Childs:
