I’m delighted to be heading off to Webfest in Budva, Montenegro later this month.

Last year I was there as a speaker, while this time round I’ll be moderating two fantastic sessions:

“Unlock potential in women”  Heidi Harman (GeekGirl)

“SEOmoz wonders” Ruth Burr (SEOmoz)

It should be good fun and I’m really looking forward to catching up with people I met last year.

Here’s the release we’re putting out on it:
