Meetup 43 was to see a presentation on Podcasting. The day before the meetup, circumstances beyond our's, and more importantly, the presenter's control prevented her from presenting (we'll reschedule). We quickly pivoted and hosted a sucessful Open Space workshop. Attendees pitched discussion topics then everyone was given three votes (the topics and votes are shown above). Three discussion topics tied for 1st place:
Topic: Secrets of successful podcasting Open Space Workshop Target Audience: Technology entrepreneurs, business owners, and professionals Meetup Track: Technology Innovation: Product and Services InnovationDate & Time: Tuesday, May 14, 2013 @ 7pm Location: O’Finn’s Irish Temper, The Whiskey Lounge. 136 Church St. Oakville, ON.

How much it costs: Nothing but your time.
The pundits have stopped talking about the “death of podcasting.” In fact, this medium is stronger than ever. On May 14, Donna Papacosta will show you the benefits of adding an audio podcast to your marketing communications, and share her tips for producing a high-quality show. She’s already made all the mistakes; you can learn from her experience.
Donna Papacosta of Trafalgar Communications helps people engage with employees, expand relationships with clients and uncover leads, using traditional communications, social media and podcasts. In 2005 Donna launched the Trafcom News Podcast, one of the first business podcasts in Canada. Since then, she has produced more than 800 podcast episodes for herself and her clients. In addition to being an active podcaster, Donna writes, consults, speaks and runs workshops and Web-based seminars. She knows the tech world well; Donna’s first career was as a systems analyst, and she often works with clients in the technology sector.

Thanks to everyone who came out to workshop with us re the future of Silicon Halton. With almost 40 people at Ned Devine's, we covered a lot of ground, and discussed a whole bunch of things including:
Celebrating the past: We’ve learned a great deal over the past three years on how communities develop and grow organically without the need for funding. We’ve worked with many Silicon Halton members who have donated (and continue to do so) their time in contributing to the success of meetups, peer to peer groups and the overall well being of the community. We heard from you what you liked, and what you thought we could be better. Thank you everyone!
Looking Forward: Working in 3 teams we brainstormed, planned, and built action plans around three key areas that we'll work on for the next 12 months.
Thanks to everyone for their ideas, commitment, and courage to help us get Silicon Halton to the next level. Remember - 2500 members this year! We look forward to working with you this year - and for many years to come.
Chris, Rick, and Reema
