Episode 021 – Billy Ekofo and Inman Day 3 Wrap

Episode 021 – Billy Ekofo and Day 3 Wrap

Perhaps the most beautiful moment of Inman Connect was the reunion of Billy Ekofo with his family, who/whom he hadn’t seen in 18 years. (We can’t ever get the whole who/whom thing right, so we just put both.) There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Billy was reunited with his family as the main stage crowd watched in awe.

Serendipitously, it was Billy who stopped by our Podcasting Command Center at Inman Connect San Francisco (PCCICSF) and shared his reactions, plans and feelings after that event. It was incredible!

Check out Billy’s powerful talk and the incredible moment that followed. (Link in the show notes below.)
