I am excited and a iittle nervous about the Rent an Expert event this Wednesday July 19th starting at 530pm.  It still seems that a lot of other people have expressed interest in coming that are not on the Wiki – I don’t know if it is because they don’t have the password “yeswecan” or because they don’t know how to edit a Wiki or because they are not really coming but are being nice to me 🙂 Whatever, the reason, I will be there along with at least a couple dozen other good folks who want to share their expertise with others so it looks like this will be a very interesting experiment.

The brief overview of the night is that people like you will be able to set up shop at one of the tables in the room offering your expertise in 15 or 30 minute appointments, helping people learn or do anything that you want to offer.  Sessions can be one on one or perhaps even done in a small group setting if appropriate.  People will pay a minimum of $1 per 15 minute sessions but are encouraged to spend more if the value they received was high.  Throughout the evening, everyone in attendace will vote on which charity will receive the donation of all the money collected.  At the end of the night, all the money and votes will be tallied and we will announce which charity is the big winner.  Also, the person who collected the most money will win a copy of MindManager Pro from Mindjet!

So now we need a few volunteers and could really use one more last minute sponsor since the company we had hoped to donate additional wine fell through (or rather, we never heard back from them after initial interest).  Volunteers will help with signage, managing the appointments, helping people get oriented when they arrive, setting up the room and a little bit of the cleanup.  Those of you who can volunteer, please show up around 5pm.

We will mix and mingle from about 530-6pm.  At 6pm we will do a little kickoff and the first appointments/sessions will begin at 615pm, continuing through till about 8 at which time we will collect all the monies and tally up the winners.  Make sense?  Do you have an idea that will make it better?  Want to sponsor or volunteer?  email Kristie@ this domain.org

Much love and thanks to our sponsors, CNet, MindJet, Rate It All, Stormhoek and Social Media Club

Looking forward to seeing you there!
