What an exciting day it's been. I've been sitting on the amazing news that Sarah Brown will be delivering the CyberMummy11 keynote and it has been killing me. I'm pants at secrets but now it's all out in the open and I can get back to working out what the next surprise announcement is going to be!
For those of you who don't know, Sarah is the founder and President of PiggyBankKids, a charity that she founded in 2002 that supports charitable projects to create opportunities for children and young people in the UK. She's also Global Patron of the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood and a leading campaigner for maternal mortality.
On the social media front she really is one of us... and if you aren't already following her on Twitter, you'll find her @SarahBrownUK.
She's been involved in some really inspirational campaigns and I'm honoured that she's taking time out of her schedule to join us.
Her book about life at the UK's most famous address, Behind the Black Door is published in March, so don't forget to bring your copy for her to sign.
The other thing that I will be totally be screaming about is next week's Social Media Week.
This biannual event is a global platform that connects people, content and conversation around emerging trends in social media. And it truly is global.
Events will be taking place in London, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Sao Paolo, Paris, Rome and Hong Kong. Last years events attracted more than 7,500 attendees and thousands more joined the conversation online.
