At the first Keynote from D. Sullivan at SMX West, I looked for my SEO director only to find that he apparently was introduced to the A-list club the night before doing shooters in the bar with some of the top names. He was sick and missed the first 2 hours. He did however develop a much improved respect for the older guys and how they can handle themselves. Way to prove that age and experience do count, big time!This should be a mandatory read before anyone is allowed entrance to a conference!

Does anyone realize how many photos are online of drinking, partying and the like after conferences?

There’s a few hunded online from the very recent SES London for example, and many more for the more-recent SMX in the US.

@SpostareDuro Yes, and that could be a full time reputation management job for some. :)

Very funny, esp. #2 - I was just talking to an associate today about my personal favorite - the pushy sales guy who gets up to ask speakers a question and says, "Hi, I’m so and so, with Company X and I just wanted to say how right you are.  With us, we see a lot of that...."
