Ragan's 5th Annual Employee Communications, PR and Social Media Summit is this week. If you're there and see me, please stop and say "hello." I'm presenting in two sessions this year: a workshop on "The 6 Thorniest Problems for Speechwriters" and "Speechwriters Take Note: It's Not Just About the Writing."
Ragan has pulled in a great lineup of speakers this year to present at the Microsoft Headquarters in Redmond. Speakers from Walmart, NASCAR, Coca-Cola, The Mayo Clinic, Raytheon, Whole Foods Markets and more will be on hand to share their knowledge and wisdom.
As with most conferences, however, a lot of the real learnings take place outside the formal session settings. It's in one-on-one discussions and hallway talks where you get to know people and get some individual advice on vexing problems and concerns.
So, if you see me, stop, say hello. And we'll learn together!
