On February 16th and 17th I will be Keynote speaker at the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Virginia Annual conference in Charlottesville, Virginia. I will be speaking on the topic Creating a Culture of Rainmakers and will be joined in the afternoon of the 17th by a panel of Rainmakers from the Virginia market. If you want to find out more about what others have said about Creating a Culture of Rainmakers click here or check out the SMPS VA website for more information.
I am leaving for Denver Colorado tomorrow to attend this year’s SMPS Build Business 2008 convention. I am going with a refreshing sense of excitement as I look forward to meeting, in person, many new friends that I have made while blogging this past year. While I am gone it is my intention to “whiteboard” the sessions that I attend on this blog every evening, so if you are unable to attend this year, just stay tuned for the key takeaways from those sessions.
While at Build Business, I will be speaking at this years CPSM day on the topic of ‘Building a Company of Rainmakers’. I have attached a copy of my PowerPoint presentation to this blog for those that won’t be able to make it, as well as for those that would like to download it after I speak on Wednesday. I have attached two versions: 1) a .pdf handout version of the PowerPoint that is an easy reference tool and 2) a full, editable, and usable copy PowerPoint that you are welcome to download and use for your own purposes. (As always, please provide credit where credit is due) I look forward to seeing many of you in Denver later this week!
