In Your Hands: The Women Grow Business Boot Camp

With the first-ever Women Grow Business Boot Camp successfully behind us, I wanted to make sure you were able to access the resources even if you weren’t able to make it to the boot camp (there’s always the next time, right?).

So, here goes.

You can download several of the presentations from Network Solutions’ Slideshare account, and you’ll also find a complete contact list for speakers, sponsors and supporters (look under the “Documents” section).

Melanie Spring and Patricia Frame’s “Building Blocks” presentation is available here.

Kathy Korman Frey’s keynote presentation is available here. Kathy tells me it might look a little funky if you’re not viewing it in Internet Explorer because of a bug in Slideshare, so just a heads up on that.

Stacy Yamaoka of Yayastream did a great job with the live-stream; you can view her blog post and some of the archived recordings here.

And if you’re looking for a photographer, don’t forget to check out Aaron Thompson, who took terrific photos of the boot camp, including the one pictured above.

Here are some interesting posts we’ve seen following the event that opine on it, or reference it:

We’d never have been able to pull this off had it not been for the sponsors – thank you, Network Solutions and Steptoe & Johnson – the speakers, contributors, volunteers… and everyone who supported the event, from tweeting about it, to showing up, to following the live-tweets (here’s the boot camp Twitter transcript).

You all rock.
