Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - David Meerman Scott, Worldwide Rave

This is great. I had the privilege of hearing David speak in Sydney this week and this post helps me refresh on some key points. The buy, beg, bug, or earn list is brilliant - although some PR people in the rather boisterous crowd got cranky about the "beg" element the other night: David handled that with humor, courtesy and aplomb.

This is the best interview of David that I've read. I'm a great fan of his books as well.

He is a very clear and open thinker: it's nice to hear from someone who really wants to share and impart his ideas.

I like his approach: encouraging some of all four ways to bring attention to your business. So many experts encourage only their own special area of experties.

If you ever interview him again, I'd love to hear more about how he runs his business sometime. No employees is a very ascetic policy.

I too am a huge fan of both David and Seth. They share the same principles and I could listen to both of them speak for hours and always learn something new.
