We have completed an other *somewhat* successful quadruple coverage of the SES conference. Huge thank you to Benjamin Pfeiffer of Rank Smart, Chris Boggs of Avenue A | Razorfish and Lee Odden of Top Rank Results.
We have covered a whopping 38 sessions, would have been 39, but for some reason, I lost one. I would like to personally apologize for any mistakes, omissions, grammar issues, if it is hard to read and if we insulted anyone. The coverage is meant to be extremely quick but with that comes issues. Anyway... Here is a recap of the sessions we have covered...
