I'm considering also running 'site reviews' at each event, where we (the audience) spend 15 mins or so reviewing someone's website and seeing how we could improve it... Does that sound like it'd be a good idea?

What about 'how to sell SEO' type talks, suitable for all levels (e.g. not just business development / account managers, but for anyone in any type of agency or freelancer role)? Yay/nay?
