EFactor's event in Miami was a smash! The presentation by our keynote speaker Ron Williams was entertaining as well as informative. He managed to touch on key points on social networking as well as promote his company and how he managed the growth of SnapGoods. Ron was followed by David Mulling’s of Kaizen Interactive from Jamaica. While David’s presentation was more laid back, touching on similar issues. It was great to have David there since he graduated from University of Miami MBA (we had ten students attend). Murray Izenwasser of Biztegra is a gifted speaker who entertained and got the audience involved in question and answer format while outlining the key components to creating a successful start up. His point on cost control, staffing, accounting, and getting the best legal advice went beyond social media advise to core issues of being a successful entrepreneur. Sebastian Rusk of SocialBuzTV was the perfect closer as he has an incredible amount of energy and is just a fantastic speaker. He brought things to life with his enthusiasm and sincerity regarding starting his business. We were at almost 9 PM when he finished and went directly to the Networking Hour. All the speakers stayed till the very end giving advice and input on a one on one basis to the attendies (of which almost all stayed for the Neworking Hour) we wrapped it about 10 PM.
