At the beginning of 2013, I made a conscious decision to pull back a good portion of my appearances/public speaking at webcasts and conferences. I made this decision for a few reasons, but at the top was the fact that I wanted to concentrate on growing Trendline as well take a mental break from trying to coming up with original and interesting presentations that crowds have come to expect. I would spend a tremendous amount of time researching, concepting, outlining, making, prepping and rehearsing for presentations that I became mentally drained and needed a break.
When I was approached several months ago to do 2 engagements in the month of November, I had some trepidation but figured that I had to jump back on the horse at some point in time this year. So with that in mind, I wanted to alert our readers to two events where I feel honored to be presenting.
All About Email Virtual Conference and Expo – November 14th at 12:30 ET.
In 2012 I participated in this virtual event and found it to be extremely rewarding,so when they asked me to do again this, I was tickled. This year, I am the midday keynote and will be discussing new technologies in email that could help you increase revenue. While there is nothing in this presentation that will be earth shattering, I will discuss some new ways to think about old problems and might even introduce to some companies doing some exciting things that can truly benefit their bottom line. This is a virtual conference so it runs all day. If you can’t make it to hear me speak, you should stop by the conference at some point in time during the day to check it out since there is something for everyone.
Dreamforce ’13 – November 19th at 12:30 PT in Ralston Room at the Palace Hotel
Jon Miller from Marketo invited me to speak with my long time colleague and friend D.J. Waldow and I could not be more excited. D.J. and I have done plenty of webcasts and podcasts together, but this will be the first live event and stage that we are sharing. We have great chemistry and while we tend to agree to disagree on stuff, I am looking forward to participating in this event as I am sure it will be rather entertaining. If any of our readers are going to be at Dreamforce, drop me a line and lets grab a coffee while I am in town.
Dreamforce is massive and I believe sold out at this time.
The presentations are nearly done and I am looking forward to speaking publicly again. Lets hope you guys are as excited as I am. See you on the other side.
