The Plutus Awards Ceremony

by Flexo on September 19, 2012

The Plutus Awards ceremony was one of the opening events of this year’s Financial Blogger Conference. The awards ceremony was masterfully hosted by Kevin McKee of Thousandaire.com and the night wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the dedicated group of volunteers. The evening was an amazing success. Thank you to everyone who played a role, on stage or off, in making this year’s Plutus Awards ceremony one of the highlights of this year’s conference.

If you were at the event, you can relive the experience by watching the video. If you were not in attendance, enjoy the performance for the first time.

The audio in the video is taken from the camcorder rather than the soundboard, so there is a lot of audience noise. By the time Kevin’s opening number begins, you probably won’t notice the noise as much.
