Networking and connecting @ #SMWF

Here at Social Media Word Forum HQ we’re all about making connections, creating open networks and, most importantly, helping others do the same.

Holding a massive social media conference across five continents is a great way to do this, but we can’t stop there.

We’ve created a Google document, a simple, handy list for anyone lucky enough to be coming to the SMWF Europe show in London on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

 The idea is that SMWFers can access the doc and leave their name and twitter handle. Then see who else is going to the show and make connections, find out if you have mutual areas of interest or potential to help each other out.

We also thought you might appreciate connecting with some of the top-line industry thought leaders we’ve got speaking at the show next week. Here are some of their Twitter handles:
