About 30 minutes ago we launched an internal competition for two of our UK staff to join Laura, Chris and myself in Seattle for Mozcon 2013.
They’re very excited, as you can imagine.
Here’s that internal email (with client examples removed:)
You at Mozcon.
I hope you like the sound of that! For the last 3 years, I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to speak at Mozcon – it’s the world’s most exciting, up to date and inspiring conference. It’s in Seattle, WA which is a great city to go visit!
This year, 2 lucky Gadgeteers will be coming with me, to hang out with the US team (Chris and Laura) to learn from some of the most inspiring digital marketers on the planet.
Not only that, you’ll be doing a tour of the MozPlex and hanging out with a lot of other inspired marketing folks.
