Last year, at the National Convention for my company, the reviews of my presentation we're mixed. So imagine my joy to receive 5 out of 5 ratings for a local presentation to the IABC (Communications Council) in Omaha. I have 3 presentations on schedule for this year's convention in April, so needed this morale boost. A February 2009 presentation to the local ASTD chapter netted $100, and they didn't throw me out of the room, so I'm ready to jump back in the game, presenting to business owners in April. My topics: Best Practices in Training; R&D and Strategic Planning. Wish me luck.
