Annoying conference marketing – Haynet

I am getting a bit sick with the organisers of the 2006 PR Week Corporate Comms conference.

I registered for the relevant day a few weeks ago and have since received about 3 emails still trying to get me to sign up for a conference I have already registered for.

I have also now just received an email asking whether I would like to register for the 2nd day (which is not relevant to me)

Haynet – please back off. You have my business (for now).

I would add this to the list of "bad marketing efforts". It certainly undermines the idea that the conference is about effective communications – the effort seems pretty bloody poor at the moment.

Contrast with the Changing Media Summit – they acknowledge the registration, send me an info pack and guide for the day – and that's it. Perfect.

Note to self

When interviewing notable academic for 25 minutes ensure that the recording device is RECORDING and not stuck on pause.


Miles vs Kilometres

There's been a lot of talk recently about changing road signs from Miles to Kilometres to bring us line with the rest of Europe for the 2012 Olympics.

Sounds like a load of rubbish to me.

If we're doing road signs, why not other things – which songs would the EU like to see brought up to metric standards?

The Who – I can see for kilometres and kilometres and kilometres
The Proclaimers – And I would walk 500 Kilometres
Someone else – I'd walk a million kilometres just for one of your smiles, Mammy

Just doesn't scan like 'miles'
