Public speaking is something I really enjoy to do. Whether in front of 5 or 5,000 people there is nothing more invigorating then sharing your ideas and experience with an engaged group. Getting to meet new people and heard their stories is an added benefit. Of course in today’s digital world we’re got tweetchats, webinars, virtual conferences and more, but there is something unique about the energy in a room with a live audience. Whether that room is the local library for Internet 101 (one of my first talks) or one of the massive ballroom sessions of Internet World International.
A frequent speaker on a wide-range of marketing disciplines, my recent talks include: Why Supporting Customers is the New Marketing, What Does a Social Business Strategy Look Like and Community Building. Below are a few of the conferences I have spoke at along with teaching engagements and organizations I have presented to:
Society for Internet Advertising
Webtrends Engage Conference
American Marketing Association
Social Media Club
Los Angeles Advertising Club/AD2LA
Information Week/Tech Web
