Fresh off a nice nap and night’s sleep, I’m feelin’ much fresher than when I woke up on the top of the luggage carousel at Chicago O’Hare at 4 a.m. Barring that last note, SES Chicago was a good time as has come to be expected. It’s always fun to meet new people in the industry, and see those familiar conference faces that are always ready to swap some secrets and stories over some spirits.
I was very excited to have the great opportunity to speak on two panels in Chicago including Developing Your SEM Niche, and My SEM Toolbox (which according to Brad should be the SEO Toolbox since there were no PPC tools). Thanks to all the folks who shared panels with me, especially Greg, Justin, and Bill for their assistance and encouragement.
I think both sessions went pretty well, and I’m getting (a little) more comfortable with the whole public speaking thing. I don’t remember who gets credit for (re)telling me the Seinfeld joke, but until recently it was probably true for me…
Surveys show that the #1 fear of Americans is public speaking. #2 is death. Death is #2. That means that at a funeral, the average American would rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy. – Seinfeld
I’m probably one step closer to being prepared to give a eulogy rather than receive it.
