SES London is here again.
Opening today (Online Marketing Summit day) and continuing through to Thursday 18th, this year looks set to be a really exciting one. In fact the sessions and line-ups are so varied, interesting and relevant I’ve had a very tough time working out which sessions to attend. Yes… like the NHS of the search industry (but with less beige and more blood) we’re going to be doing a little “public service blogging”. We’re also going to be doing a few video interviews with headline speakers. All, so that those of you who can’t make it, will be able to pretend that you did. Because we care,.. and possibly because I had a bit too much Valentine’s Day.
I may reserve the right to make the odd last-minute change too, so check back here intermittently just in case!

I won’t be blogging on Thursday, but will be going to LondonSEO, so if you are at the event and we haven’t met do come and say Hi at The Camden Head, unless I see you first.
I hope I manage to do these sessions some justice and give those of you who can’t make it, a bit of an insight. You can all #sharemyhangover on Friday.
