I do a fair amount of speaking at conferences focused on digital signage.
I’d stop way short of saying I’m a natural-born audience killer, but I tend to know my subject matter well and I try to make the proceedings interesting and relevant. Where other people will blabber on with subjects like “Five Key Considerations For Deployment” I do talks with titles like “Your Baby’s Ugly.”
Yeah, I did that.
In the last couple of years I have done talks in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Toronto, New York, Calgary, Montreal, Miami, Denver, Orlando and waaaaaay over in Taiwan and the other direction, in Dubai. Conference planners seem to appreciate that I don’t really have any pots and pans to sell when I get a mike in my hands, and that I just tell it like it is. I tend to talk about what’s going on and what’s coming, and about strategy.
I’ve also run a conference, called DSrupted, in Toronto each fall.
If you want to pull me in to speak at your event, or referee a panel or full-day, send me a note!
