I felt the most useful and inspiring speakers were those that covered information of social media and using it to get your designs and creativity out there! Leslie Carothers, CEO of The Kaleidoscope Partnership, shared with everyone the amazing "Olioboard," a site that allows you to create 2 and 3D rooms that you can share with others, shop from, and save. Most design campers agreed this was one of their favorite presentations.

All The Best's Ronda Rice Carman spoke about the necessity of defining your brand, which includes having a website that reflects your philosophy and services. ( I don't usually like to push my other business, web design, but I can definitely hook you guys up with a gorgeous website!) She also recommends staying focused on what you want to accomplish - avoid having too many branches of your blog/business. Find your niche and stick to it!
Design expert Susanna Salk spoke about getting published and her experiences creating beautiful design books.
Susanna's tips include not being afraid to get out there and introduce yourself and your work through various social networking platforms (twitter, facebook, olioboard, pinterest, etc.), and to editors and bloggers.
