The Rush of Speaking

Yesterday I spoke at the Boston 140 Conference and Steve Garfield captured this photo of me on stage. I was giving a talk called "I'm a Dad and Damn Proud of It." (video coming soon) CC Chapman at #140conf Boston

If you didn't know, I love speaking.

I love being on a stage in front of a room full of people. Maybe it is from my years of doing theater, but I get such a rush from the energy of a crowd and anytime I hear that I inspired someone with my words it is an even bigger rush.

I get to speak in front of a variety of audiences, about a variety of topics, in a variety of locations. It may be cliche, but variety IS the spice of life and it keeps me going.

With the release of Content Rules later this year, I'm hoping to continue to do more speaking in 2011. If you are considering speakers for your event of any size, I have a speakers page set up where you can find out more and I'm only an e-mail away.
