Fall 2009 Sales Conference: Part 1

AMACOM had it’s Fall 2009 Sales Conference this past Wednesday and I was on the scene to capture the excitement (and present a couple speeches). To see our live Twitter feed, complete with poor typing because I have yet to master the Blackberry, follow the hashtag #bpscf09 (book publishing sales conference fall 2009). So here are the pics from Will and myself in the pre-conference excitement to the first few presentations.

Rose and Valerie screaming from the gallery have nothing on Annie, Janet, Therese and Irene. Ashley and Cathleen discuss the upcoming season with a rep near the breakfast table
