Just looked in my calender and noticed SES London 2010 is coming up next Feb. And they seem to be shipping the Yanks over again.
Not sure if I will be going to this one, the last one had way too many Americans presenting and not enough Brits. I remember one keynote which was 100% American, which seemed to say the British have not enough search engine optimised talent locally to get on the stage and compete with the likes of Jill Whalen. Now I don’t have a problem if it’s SES New York or SES Chicago. But this is SES London.
So to the organisers of SES, show a little more respect for the local talent and if you expect British seo bloggers to be covering the show why not have some of the incredible British seo talent on the stage and stop paying for Americans to be shipped over.
If the organisers don’t know of any British or European people to present and panel at the conference I will be happy to give them a list of some of the best in the business.
It will reduce your carbon footprint too ;)
Disclaimer: I have more US friends than UK friends and some of my family are American and was named after an American and blah blah blah, yada yada yada, so not anti American in any way. But see SES London as a British and not American event.
