I follow Chris Brogan's blog and he always impresses me with the way he interacts with his readers. He always encourages people to approach him as a speaker and shares his schedule so that he can connect with folks around the country. Also, one of the first books that I read this year was Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazi, who lays out a plan for better networking tactics.
In this spirit of linking with people during my travels, I've listed my upcoming speaking and events:
Mar 20-23: ASPA Annual Conference, Miami, FL, Web 2.0 (3/22) and Generations (3/23)
Mar 24-26: Social Media for Government, Washington, DC, Web 2.0 Metrics with Ari Herzog (3/26)
Mar 27-28: Gov 2.0 Camp, Washington, DC
Mar 30: Department of Commerce Aspiring Leaders Development Program, Washington, DC, Generations
Apr 14-15: Gov 2.0 Bootcamp, Knoxville, TN, Web 2.0 and Social Networks
Apr 26-29: Training Officers Consortium Institute, Williamsburg, VA, Generations with Jean Palmer
May 28: Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, Durham, NC, Generations/Web 2.0
May 31-Jun 3: ASTD International Conference, Washington, DC, Generations/"Federal Family Portrait" (6/1)
Jun 10-12: Federal Workforce Policy Forum, Washington, DC, Web 2.0
There's more in the works (like Boston and Philly!), but I wanted to make these dates and locations available. Please let me know if we can connect if our paths cross at any of these places!
