Audience comments from a recent presentation

thumbs-up-smallThought I’d share comments from a presentation I did recently at Experience Unlimited in Oakland. They are unedited. Oh well, I did put a couple of comments in brackets – and no, I’m not going to wear a tie. Been there, done that.

This isn’t entirely self-serving. For those of you who don’t believe you can do this personal branding stuff, read the reviews. This was not a techie audience. YOU CAN DO THIS TOO!

“Nice! Like the positive stuff.”

“Acquired a lot of specific sites that will be helpful in my journey to self marketing/self promotion.”
