Monday Wake Up :: #Echo13 Recap & Quotes

If you follow me on Twitter, and you weren’t at Echo13 last week, you were probably either really annoyed, or really pleased. I live-tweeted the entire conference, and that may have gotten tiresome for some of you, but the overwhelming response was that it was super helpful for those of you who weren’t able to make it to Echo13 but were following along from afar. You can catch up on all my notes here. And if you’re trying to process all of the Echo13 goodness, but also going back to work this week, here are 3 things you can do to implement something new you’ve learned.

Thanks to Rob Thomas, Jonathan Malm, and Jeff Parker, and the rest of the RT Creative Team for putting on such an amazing gathering of church geeks and communicators!

My friend, Brad Zimmerman put together a pretty good recap of day 2 of the conference along with notes. Check it out here.
