It’s been a busy week here again this week. ?I received a phone call on Monday from Brenda Farrell of Towns of Excellence wondering could I replace a speaker at their conference in Carlow on Wednesday. A quick chat about times and topic and I was delighted to say I would, then put my thinking cap on regarding delivering a talk on social media and customer service which turned out to be easy enough.
First though was Tuesday, where I presented a talk on ‘blogging for business especially e-commerce’ at the Kro IT solutions launch. ?I had planned on going along to it in any case as they had some really good speakers lined up and I knew I would pick up lots of tips too as well as perhaps networking for our new ‘Write on Track‘ business and I was delighted when Ruairi asked me to present.
I was speaking last at the Towns of Excellence event (keynote speaker position of course!) but I think I managed to keep everyone awake and thoroughly enjoyed it. ?Here I am photographed with Sean Gallagher and Brenda Farrell (Sean just has to become President now!) and yes, he impressed me with his speech. ?Norris isn’t going to make it now so I am pretty sure I’ll be voting for Gallagher.
