It’s official: Flash on the Beach 2009: Miami!

Oct 27, 2008 Author: Lisa Larson-Kelley | Filed under: Announcements

The big news out of FOTB Brighton: they’re headed over the pond in 2009 to the warm and sunny beaches of Miami!

And I’ve had the honor of being asked to speak… It should be my big re-entry into the world after having this baby (any day now, they say….) so I’m really looking forward to it. John Davey knows how to put on a great conference, and I’m certain the US version will be no exception!

Check out the site, get in on the early-early-early bird ticket pricing when they go on sale in November. I’ll keep you posted about any details as the date gets closer. In the meantime, save the date: April 6-8, 2009.
