Beverly Macy and Matthew Gilbert at UCLA Gravity Summit on February 25, 2009
This photo was taken at the inaugural Gravity Summit at the UCLA Faculty Center on February 25, 2009. Attracting a sold-out crowd of more than 120 social media leaders and learners, the event gave attendees a forum through which they could share knowledge in person while solidifying and creating new online connections.
Launched by new media visionary, author and consultant Rodney Rumford with Beverly Macy, managing partner of Y & M Partners and UCLA Extension instructor, Gravity Summit seminars are designed to educate, inform and empower marketing professionals, small business owners, advertisers, and c-Level executives about social media.
This was the first of several similar events planned to take place on other college campuses nationwide: the next Gravity Summit events will be held on May 5, 2009 at Stanford University and at Harvard University in October 2009.
