Karen was brilliant in her role as moderator. She had scripted questions to follow, but she found a way to enhance the topics she had to pull answers from us for and delivered her own perspectives adding to a varied set of opinions. In the end Karen made an even more important contribution by keeping the lines of communication open with IAMCP and our attendees. She has also agreed to grace us with her presence, this time as a panelist at SMB Nation October 1, 2007. I certainly look forward to her valuable input and I hope if you are not in attendance you will catch the video later which we will post when it's made available.
