Michael Robin on 8.13.2014 in Marketing

 

The PanelPicker is a two-step online process that allows the SXSW community to have a voice in what sessions are scheduled at the SXSW 2015 Festival. First launched in 2007, the PanelPicker allows the community to submit, review, comment and vote on the speaking proposals that they want to see become a part of the event.

During the voting process, the SXSW asks community to weigh in on the proposals they have received for the upcoming season. Go to the SXSW 2015 Panel Picker, create an account and get ready to vote through Friday, September 5, 2014. Each voter can vote once per proposal. Don’t forget to leave a constructive comment about what you do or do not like about the proposals you vote on! Read more to see what panels Rocksauce hopes to be a part of for SXSW 2015.

Say Hello! to Billie Whitehouse, Founder of Wearable Experiments and speaker at our SXSW 2014 Panel on Monday March 10th, Tech Off Your Clothes the Naked Truths of Wearables where the focus is the intersection of fashion and technology for wearable technology.

“I hope that fashion (or design) has given a face to technology. It is the communication between the function of a product to the consumer. Regardless what anyone says, visual communication is one of the most powerful tools. It evokes an emotional reaction – great tech products know and use this.”

Get Your Fill at SXSW, Sign up for SXSW Mentoring

Michael Robin on 3.3.2014 in Marketing

 

SXSW provides a great forum for making valuable, one-on-one connections that can take your career to the next level. These connections sometime occur via panels, via networking events and even via chance meetings in the hallways at the Austin Convention Center.

Another avenue to make these valuable, one-on-one connections is at the SXSW Mentoring Program, which was launched at the 2012 event. The SXSW Mentor Program allows registrants to participate in a seven minute meeting with an industry veteran / insider. I am a huge advocate of mentoring programs and SXSW makes it so that you can meet with almost any professional with experiences you’re looking to learn from. Search and signup for the SXSW Mentor Programs are here.
