Advisory Board Members Announced for the Enterprise Video Conference

Screen shot 2012-06-18 at 6.31.59 PMLast week I blogged about our newest conference, the Enterprise Video Conference, taking place in conjunction with our Streaming Media West show, Oct. 30 – 31 in Los Angeles.

Today I’m happy to announce the seven advisory board members who will help with the planning of the show, will co-chair the event and will lend their industry expertise to put together the best lineup of speakers and content. The advisory members are:

  • Patty Perkins, Team Leader, Creative Services Technology, Wells Fargo
  • Erica Schroeder, Director, Business Video, Cisco
  • Larry Bouthillier, Media Technology Architect, Harvard University
  • George Levar, Video Service Delivery Lead, Accenture
  • Michael Newman, VP/GM, Video Content Management, Polycom
  • Paul Riismandel, Director, Curriculum Support, School of Communication, Northwestern University
  • Eric Hards, Manager, Digital Media and Streaming, Enterprise Digital Media, Lockheed Martin

While I am in the very early planning stages for the event, the schedule will permit for a total of 18 session slots, eight of which will be 45 minutes in length and ten of which will be 60 minutes in length. About a third of the slots will be reserved for customer case studies and in total, I expect about 70 speaking slots. We’ll also be having four keynotes, two each morning, and dedicated networking events.

Next month we’ll have the website live at and the call for speakers will officially open. But anyone interested in speaking is welcome to email me now with their speaking request and I’ve already gotten a few dozen submissions from some great Fortune 500 corporations and universities. In a few weeks we’ll also have details on sponsorships and the first batch of confirmed speakers.

If you have any questions about the Enterprise Video Conference, feel free to reach out to me anytime. I’m still recovering from arm surgery and am not online much yet, but I will respond to your inquiry when I can.

What would you think our Twitter hash tag should be for the event? Love to hear suggestions in the comments section.
