Blogging by the Campfire
There's something surreal about blogging by the campfire watching the sun rise. I'm out with my boys on a guys day out. Ok, I didn't post this from the campfire but I could have since I had cell signal and can tether my phone... But I resisted the urge. What you've got here is what I happened to jot down while my boys were sleeping. More on my blog at Blogging by the Campfire ......

I've sat in on content reviews and keynote writing sessions so I know the messaging from that talk and the overlap that there will be with my session. One of the services that they offer to their speakers is a speech coach. It's the first time that I've worked with one one on one. I sat through a class offered by a different conference a number ......
