It has been over a year since my last public appearance at the stage. After previous year, when I had quite many talks I promised myself I would keep a sabbatical from that stuff. At the time it didn't work out, I still ended up speaking twice last year.
But after those two occasions it has now been a year already. I have achieved that goal. A bit late and without trying after I gave up. Oh, and I don't count all those talks I have given internally within our company.
I think it's time to step into the spotlight once again. I have a lot of new topics I would like to talk about. It's also part of my personal brand building. See, I have learnt something from the sales training already. But in the end I'm sure that's good for my career be it sales or consulting. Being a recognised expert on the field definitely opens doors and brings opportunities.
I already have one bigger conference in sight where I'm pretty sure I could get my session approved. But before that, it would be nice to have a couple of practice rounds in some smaller events to perfect my talk.
