Where to catch me....speaking

While you're making sure you don't get caught unprepared, you can catch me speaking to these fine organizations in the next month or so. Let me know if you'll be attending one or more of these meetings, and keep an eye out for related posts on the blog--as most readers know, I prefer to put my "handouts" here, in electronic form, as a permanent resource for all to share. Catch me speaking at:

  • The AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellows' professional development series. I'll be facilitating a workshop on media interview skills on the morning of February 13, helping fellows use "elevator speeches" as a guide to developing their media interview skills. AAAS policy fellows only can register here. You can get a head start by reading my post on how to use your elevator speech in a media interview without sounding like a robot.
  • The Montgomery County, Maryland, Chamber of Commerce small business committee will host me to speak about "Smart, Small, Successful Ways with Social Media for Small Business," focusing on sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest and more--and how to make the most of marketing on social media without letting it take up all your time. For Chamber members, February 15 in Rockville, Maryland.
  • At the Ragan 2012 Speechwriters and Executive Communicators Conference, I'm moderating a panel on speechwriting while female at 9:15 a.m. on Friday, March 16. Register at the link.
Need a speaker on public speaking, presentations, social media or the shifting sands of communications strategies for your organization? Email me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz.
