I’m off to downtown San Diego today, to attend the National Speakers Association conference, "Speaking with Soul and Substance."
Why do this? Anyone who knows me knows I love being behind my computer. For one thing, Tom Antion told us (The Blog Squad) we really should add speaking gigs as part of our marketing and revenue building plan for the coming year.
For another, since Denise and I are being asked to speak anyway, I want to see what others are doing, how to make our presentations more exciting, less boring.
Not that presenting on blogs is boring. But anything you talk about continuously can get that way, if you don’t deliver with enthusiasm and pizazz! I want to see how the professionals do it.
I also want to meet up with speakers who blog. Ian Griffin, who writes an excellent blog, is hosting a special interest meet-up with bloggers tonight.
