Although I have been preaching in Church for many years, speaking publicly about things other than God is something I never had the opportunity to do.
Never until now, that is.
My first non-church related speaking gig was at the Type-A Blogger’s Conference in Asheville, NC in June 2011.
I was both honored and excited to have been given this opportunity. One of my great passions is to help people succeed online, so getting to talk to a bunch of bloggers and hopefully help them along their way was a dream come true.
From Type-A, I then got to speak at BlogWorld New Media Expo in L.A. in November 2011 and was thrilled when I was invited back to Type-A the following year.
I can’t tell you how exciting it is to me to be able to connect with people in this way and I am constantly planning new presentations and working on making them as interesting and educational as possible for everyone who gives me the honor of attending one of my sessions.
2013 started with me speaking at NMX in January and I’m hoping to speak at TBEX in June and Type-A in September.
I’m looking for lots of feedback so if you’ve been to one of my sessions, I’d LOVE for you to tell me exactly how awesome (or terrible) my session was either through the ‘Have You Heard Me Speak’ box in this post or through my feedback form here 🙂 I really want to learn from the mistakes I’ll invariably make!
Of course, I’m on the lookout for more speaking engagements, too. So if you know of any that you think I could be useful to….. I’d love for you to drop me a line and let me know!
