Thanks a bundle (your lasso and hat will be waiting for you at coat check..)
That's right cowpokettes, Blogher is looking for a speaker wrangler. Just to clarify, that's sort of like a universal personal assistant.
The Speaker wrangler will take care of logistics around anything to do with the bevy of amazing speakers participating in Blogher '06.
Key requirements for the speaker wrangler are:
-Manage speaker list
-Check that they have arranged their travel
-Collect any files they may have (particularly for instructional sessions.)
-Create Speaker Bio file for our conference materials digital locker
-Be first point of contact at conference for speaker issues. Make sure they have checked in.
-This is a great opportunity to meet our nearly 90 speakers, from all walks of blogging life.
This position is not comped. If you are already registered than this may be just the way for you to increase your involvement and get to know some of the amazing people on our roster.
We are specificlly looking for someone highly organized, conscientious and motivated for this post.
PS: You have to bring your own cowboy hat - please leave your shotgun/lasso at home;)
