In accordance with prophecy, in 2010 I'm on a mission to get the word out about the revolution that's going on in employee communications.
In the first week of March I'm going on the road with my friends Suzanne Salvo and Steve Crescenzo on a week-long speaking tour of the American South (more like a traveling circus) that will bring us to San Antonio, Atlanta, and Tampa Bay with half-day seminars focusing on social media, visual communications and creativity.
Later in March I'm building on those themes as the organizer and host of RonCon 2010, a full-day conference with killer pre- and post-conference sessions in Vancouver March 22-24 and Calgary March 24-26.
I have a new-found admiration for anyone who organizes conferences. Putting RonCon together has been a huge learning curve for me -- negotiating with hotels, figuring out online registration software, getting a merchant credit card account, making travel arrangements for the speakers, soliciting sponsors, and the list goes on. But it's all done now, planning-wise, and my attention is turning to consulting projects and, of course, making sure I get bums in seats for RonCon. And posting here once in a while.
