List of Speakers & Workshop Leaders from World Domination Summit 2012

I'm still processing the experience of WDS 2012 which was full of inspiration, awesome people and amazing moments. There is so much I want to share, but my brain and heart are so full that I need to do something streamlined and productive that anchored the experience, which made me think it would be great to create a click-friendly resource of all the speakers and workshop leaders to that everyone can find them in one easy place. I know one of the things I found the most challenging of the WDS process is having to choose just 4 of the amazing workshops available, so I can't wait to dive in to see more about lots of the awesome speakers.

The list is organized by day, with mainstage speakers, then groups on the mainstage and then workshops (which are alphabetical by the last name of the workshop leader).

I hope the link list is a helpful resource for all. I had a hard time keeping focus while researching as there is so much great content and interesting articles on the sites. I couldn't find everyone though, so if you know the links of a 'need link' person above, or if that person is you and somewhere else is your home base, please feel free to email me at planetshannon at gmail dot com.
