Meeting Partners

After a year of being in partnership with my co-founders of b5media it looks like we’re finally going to meet – in person.

I just booked a ticket to Toronto and leave in just under a month for a whirlwind 10 days. Duncan’s coming also (unfortunately Shai can’t make it but we’re planning to meet her later in the year).

I had interviews this week with two journalists about b5media and it was interesting to see that in both cases the story that they latched onto was that we’d built a company without having met each other.

I guess we end that story in a few weeks – it’s going to be fun!

By the Way – I’ll also be heading to the US in late March next year to speak at a conference in Washington (more details on that in the weeks ahead). We’ll then have a week in New York as a bit of a holiday. While there won’t be a lot of spare time on either trip there’s a possibility of a meet up or two along the way.

Update: Thanks to those who’ve emailed and commented that they’d like to try and meet up while I’m in Toronto. We’ll try to pull together a meetup for anyone who is in the area to come have a drink (and/or dinner) with us. Could be the first ‘b5 party’. Stay tuned for details.

    Next year are you going to Washinton DC(I’m guessing) or Washington State on the other side of the USA from DC?

  5. Lindalee says:

    I want pictures!

    And let me know if you make it to Colorado! It’s beautiful here in March. Do you ski? Spring skiing is the best. :)

  6. Darren Rowse says:

    will be in Toronto the whole time this trip.

    And yes – Washington DC wentworth.

    Lindalee – no – I’ve done skiing once and it was a disaster :-)

  7. Can’t wait to meet you mate :-D

  8. Vic says:

    You should have a blogger/reader meetup in Toronto. If you do, I’m in.

  9. Darren Rowse says:

    We will Vic – stay tuned over the coming week or two and we’ll announced some sort of a meetup.

  10. Darren, next year it’s Romania right ?

    I’ll throw in a free coffee!

  1. [...] But what’s the angle that’s hooking the mainstream media? Let’s take a listen to b5 Media partner Darren Rowse on that: I had interviews this week with two journalists about b5media and it was interesting to see that in both cases the story that they latched onto was that we’d built a company without having met each other. [...]

  2. [...] Darren posts about our forthcoming trip to Toronto. Darren gets the easier of our trips. Bunbury is roughly 2 1/2 hours South of Perth, and Perth is literally at the arse end of the world…they say it’s the most remote capital city in the world, and they aren’t lying. Unlike Darren’s trip, god must of been on my side when I booked the flights because despite trying to make sure I went the cheapest route, Craptus..sorry, Qantas wasn’t the cheapest option, nor the easiest in terms of flights either, so I’m heading to Toronto via Hong Kong flying Cathay Pacific, which I’m told has won awards for being the best airline in the world or something similar.
