Man… What a year. Really. A lot of things have happened, and it’s already 1/4 of the way over. The best part is that we have a brand spanking new release of DotNetNuke that features social features for all editions of DNN in the 6.2 release. That release is right around the corner, and DNN Corp folks have been busy blogging about 6.2 features quite regularly. But wait, there’s more! That’s right… This is my elevator pitch, or boardwalk pitch. You choose. Just don’t call me Billy Mays or Vince Shlomi. Go ahead, look them up. One was great but passed away, and the other. Well, let’s just not go there.
It’s always been a topic, but even more so recently… People are asking more and more about various things that relate to public speaking. Whether it’s for user group meetings, code camps, DotNetNuke World, meetings with colleagues, or strategic business meetings with partners and prospective customers – public speaking is a critical tool to have honed and in your professional toolbox for your career. Honestly, many of us believe that we are good at speaking in front of an audience, or at least good enough. This first part of the year, I took it upon myself to build some presentation-style videos to explore and teach some of the most important components for public speakers.
If you have not heard of Adam Humphrey, I wouldn’t be surprised. While he is an excellent DotNetNuke community member, much of his participation is under the radar. However, he is in my opinion one of the better designers that our community and ecosystem have. He is most importantly, the owner of Adammer.com, which is the flagship company that he does most of his work out of.
