Some great apps here and because they work with Evernote, all the better....
Evernote is one of our favorite multipurpose note-taking tools, so it's not surprising that so many apps out there work with it. These apps do everything from using Evernote for storage to making use of your Evernote notebooks to do clever new things. Here are a few of our favorites.

Client event, set up, day two..

Most people see a whole lot of running around but for me and many other #eventprofs this is one of the best times for our #contentmarketing calendar because this scene contains about 25 different stories that want to be told and that attendees will love.

The trick is seeing them hidden in the mess.

I go and watch this from time to time because it reminds me of why I have made Chicago my home for so long.... it is also a commercial for the local NBC affiliate. 

I guess my point in sharing is that event marketers can do the same type of piece for their events... There are no special effects, not crazy camera angles. Just powerful words and powerful images....
