So after Seth Godin had sat down, crumpled in a heap after his marathon hour and a half talking and answering questions, I popped around the room to find out what people in the audience thought.
Quite a few people left straight away (well it was after 9pm – gasp!) but I’m sure you’ll agree a significant part of the cream of the crop remained. Here you can hear from (roughly in order of appearance):
Geoff Jones, Rachel Clarke (saying hello again and nothing else), Paul Birch, Michael Smith, Robert Loch, Helen Keegan and Sarah Williamson, Alistair Shrimpton (sorry still on 3.17 here) and Simon Christy, Max Niederhofer, Loic Le Meur, Andrew Carton, Alison Whelan, Andy Bell, Matt Drought, Feena Coleman, Deirdre Molloy, Charles (?), Mark Rogers.

A fine time was had by most last night at the Texas Embassy. Seth Godin gave a very generous speech and question and answer session, with the only proviso that questioners had to wear false long noses as seen on the cover of his latest book “All marketers are liars” (Can you tell he’s in marketing?)
I recorded all of this as well as a brisk trot round to get instant reactions from those of the crowd that didn’t instantly disappear when the great man sat down.
A chance to talk to Lee Wilkins, Gia Milinovich, Helen Keegan, Ed Daniel, Robert Loch and Paul Birch (and lots of others too).
Audio is still being processed but should be up later today – I will put the post-speech chatter in the feed here, but other stuff will be available on the Marketing Soiree wiki page.
[UPDATE: The audio for Seth's speech and the Q&A session are now available from the wiki page]
