[View outside my hotel, circa 6.30am this morning.]
After many adventures, including a most welcome diversion in Chicago, I arrived safely at my hotel last night. Slept like a baby. All good.
Besides the geek dinner with Loic tonight [not to mention, 115-odd other people attending, Jesus], my main task for the next two days is preparing my presentation for the keynote I’m giving at the Real Estate Connect SF in two days.
This is my first big keynote gig ever. So yeah, I’m pretty prepared for it, but I’m currently nervous as hell. I guess jitters at this stage are normal.
At week’s end I’m heading for Miami, where a geek dinner is happening on the 5th. Alex is organizing it. And I understand my favorite Florida sex bomb, Manola is coming. Hurrah!
I’m buried in work and Starbucks for the next 24 hours or so while I get my keynote properly organized. See you on the other side…
[As always, for anyone trying to reach me, my number while in the US is 646 704 4509.]
best of luck with the keynote Hugh, i’m sure you’ll sail through it. Will it be available anywhere online after you’re done so others interested in it can also have a peek, like myself 🙂
Hi Hugh: Looks like you’ve been traveling lately, it suits you and the Business 2.0 “what works” article featuring you and Stormhoek was fabulous!!! (do you have a framed copy?) Well, I’ve been dark for a few weeks as I get nestled into the new role here at Extra Mile Marketing. The gig here is great — doing marketing consulting with channels and have even had the oppty to practice some of what you talked with us about at Microsoft when you were here. It’s great to be a free agent. Will you be here for Gnomedex in August? If so, I’ll see you there. I think we have some unfinished business to tend to back with my old team which I haven’t forgotten about.
Best best best to you. -Kris
I am genuinely so pleased for you Hugh. Having followed your blog for a long time, I am delighted to see you land such a prestigious gig.
With so many people predicting that the real estate market is rife for a major “online shake-up” you could end up making a real difference!
Oh lord! I better start tickin’ … LOL! 🙂 Look forward to seeing you, Hugh.
Happy to a part of a welcome diversion in Chicago. Much better to hit the town with you than sit on my couch with that 17 year old wizard.
I was at your Keynote presentation and say Thanks! You did a fine job and brought a fresh voice to our meeting. I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you again in the future.
