Jan. 23 CenPhoCamp offers businesses sell­ing, marketing, communication 101

[Source: Yuri Artibise] — Cen­Pho­Camp is an uncon­fer­ence designed to bring small, local central Phoenix orga­ni­za­tions together with the cus­tomers they serve.  Unlike a typ­i­cal sem­i­nar, par­tic­i­pants are encour­aged to ask ques­tions, to leave ses­sions they don’t think are help­ful and even con­tribute to the learn­ing as they see fit.  Devel­oped as a series of tracks, each session (45 minutes of presentation; 15 minutes of questions and interaction) adheres to one of the fol­low­ing themes:

  • Begin­ner, where those new to mar­ket­ing can learn about basic approaches
  • Tech­nol­ogy, offer­ing instruc­tions on the lat­est web apps
  • Com­mu­nity, designed to help busi­nesses enable their cus­tomers to be their best adver­tis­ers
  • Roundtable discussions will take place concurrently with the other presentations

Cen­Pho­Camp, held free of charge, is being run by vol­un­teers only.  Rent for the downtown Phoenix facility is being paid by gen­er­ous ses­sion and room spon­sors (ses­sion spon­sor­ships still avail­able for $20).

Speak­ers include Designer Nina Miller of ASU; Inno­va­tors Derek Neigh­bors and Chris Con­rey of Gang­plank; Chan­nel 12 News Anchor Brahm Resnik; Free­lance jour­nal­ist Nick Mar­tin; Light Rail blog­gers Nick Bas­t­ian and Tony Arranaga; and Small Busi­ness Man­ager Bran­don Stout.  All of these pro­fes­sion­als will share solu­tions that have worked for them, instead of the­o­ries they’d like to see happen.
