Seven sessions. Two trender chats. A great keynote, product speed case, and best of all the chance to meet and learn from very smart social media consultants, practitioners and technology innovators.
There simply is no substitute for being at Social Tools Summit (well, accessing the live stream was the next best thing). You could search the #SocialTools16 hash tag and read through the thousands of tweets – I suggest that you do, if you didn’t attend or see the live stream. The tweets feature tons of great advice, links to resources, running commentary on the day’s activities – and of course lots of social tools talk.
If you are pressed for time, you could just read this post. I have attempted to capture the highlights, by curating top tweets under each session, and sharing other details.
Check out the Storify wrap, below. I also want to thank Neal Schaffer and Brian Mahony for inviting me back this year, and to their stellar team for organizing the event (you could call them the A team, as most of the names starts with A, including two Andreas; and let’s face, it they are an A team).
Also, I thank the great panel that assisted with my influencer marketing session: Lina Roque, CA Technologies (congrats for winning a Social Guru award!), Chandra Carson, Lindt & Sprungli, Eric Dahan, InstaBrand, Ryan Connors, Century Bank, Wayne Kurtzman, Pitney Bowes and Jannette Pazer, DragonSearch.

SoTrender has a nice wrap of the event. Paul Gillin mentioned it in his Silicon Angle piece about social selling. Also, see Red Javelin’s 8 Social media Takeaways from the Social Tools Summit 2016 – Boston.
