dan-gheesling-erin-fitzgerald-student-ambassador-programLast year I tested out a pilot program for students in Universities across the US and Canada.

It started as a simple idea.

Whenever I get the chance to speak at a University, I would always send a quick tweet out.

Every single time I would send one of those tweets out I would get responses from other students on Twitter asking:

“When are you coming to my University?”

Or

“How come you aren’t speaking at my school?” [click to continue…]

nova-scotia-welcomeThis month I am going to be speaking at the Nova Scotia Secondary Students’ Association’s provincial conference, “Challenging the Status Quo” on May 15, 2014.

Public speaking is one of the things I’m lucky enough to call one of my “jobs” and I’m very appreciative for the opportunities I get to speak.

Anytime I go somewhere to speak, I usually hold a Meetup in the area for everyone to attend because most of the time when I speak it is closed to the public.

If you will be attending the Meetup, let me know by signing up here.

The Meetup will be May 14, 2014.  Once you’ve signed up you will receive an e-mail with the details two days prior to the event.

Hope to see you in Nova Scotia!

Take care,

Dan

Unsocial Media – Get Better At Twitter

Last week I wrote about meeting and connecting with people at conventions and how to do more than just “network.” During that convention, I had a chance to meet some people face to face who I had been conversing with via Twitter and online for a few months. There is a tendency for people to communicate differently online than in […]

Networking At Conventions

This past weekend I had the chance to go my second gaming convention (in June 2013 was E3) ever. Unless you count me going to the Nintendo World Championships in 1990 in Detroit, then this technically was my third gaming convention. Among all of the PAX (short for Penny Arcade Expo) gaming hysteria, hype, and […]
