Eight Years of Public Speaking: It All Adds Up…

Public SpeakingWell, I’m an IT professional in my day job, so I tend to keep track of things, including my public speaking engagements. Apparently, since 2007, I have spoken in public 102 times, including speeches, lectures and 4 different workshops. I have spoken in 37 different venues, including auditoriums, studios, hotel ball rooms and restaurants. I have spoken on TV 2 times. In addition, I have organized 16 conferences and more than 100 smaller events of different types. Somehow, it all adds up over time.

    You know, that’s a lot of words. Don’t you wish they went for money, or chocolate, or something?

    I’m just amazed at the totals. They really add up over a while…and I’m only counting prepared speeches and workshops, not the many times I’ve done announcements or hosted meetings or things of that nature.

    LOL, it’s a gift. I was just talking to the guy at Pegasus Books in Bend; he’s a writer too, says he self publishes because he Hates talking in public. Doesn’t see to have a problem self-promoting in the bookstore, though.

    Well, public speaking on the convention circuit is usually part of promoting yourself as a writer. I’m going a little further and doing workshops, too.
