#smwldn_sport – event roundup and video

Thank you to everyone who came to the event at the Design Council in London tonight and those who couldnt make it but managed to watch it on Livestream instead.

Some great stats from the night – in total we had over 120 people attending, the video viewing topped 150 at one stage, over 550 #smwldn_sport tweets sent out and the same again retweeted and the hashtag trended in London during the 2 hour event….. amazing!

We will have more info to share such as the presentations and a good summary of the evening but I wanted to add this before turning my aching body in for the night. A massive thank you must go out to my co-hosts Sophie Brendel (@sophiebr) and Maz Nadjm (@mazi) for their help in making it all possible.

The speakers on the night were immense, as we knew they would be, and am sure would love to hear your feedback and for you to follow them/get to know them better. They were Adam Mountford (@tmsproducer), Tom Hines (@Official_RFU), Luca Massaro (@iamluca), Luura Higginson (@higgo_), Chris Harris/Ben Ladkin (@arsenaldotcom) for the social media showcases.

We also had for the BBC Olympics panel Lewis Wiltshire (@lewiswiltshire), Karen Pickering MBE (@karen_pickering), Jeanette Kwakye (@jnettekwakye) and Jake Humphrey (@jakehumphreyf1) which was hosted by the BBC Director of London 2012 Roger Mosey.

Below is the footage from the evening which I will you will enjoy and take elements of both now and in the future, was some great content and honest, insightful remarks from all.
