i’m asking for your SXSW 2011 vote

August 11, 2010

in communication,wellness

south by southwest (SXSW) is a multifaceted festival devoted to music, film, interactive (emerging technologies), and now, health.

here’s whersxswe you and i come in

this year they’ve added a one-day social health track, and my proposed panel “employee wellness: farce or untapped potential?” made it through SXSW’s first vetting: an internal review of submissions. it now goes through the next phase: public voting, which accounts for 30% of the programming vote. anyone can vote for what they’d like to see presented at the conference—whether they’re attending or not. presentations are filmed (think TED), so even those who don’t attend get something out of choosing the lineup.

ooh, pick me!

between today and august 27, i need your help and your vote. voting is free, simple and easy. just head on over to the SXSW panel picker, set up an account, read my submission and give it a thumbs up. there are some really stellar health entries, so take some time to read all of them.

thanks for your support!

update: their site is a tad sensitive. it does work, but may take a few attempts. stay the course…;)

Voted! I love your topic. It’s definitely something that’s top of mind right now.
