Running My Mouth
Two speaking gigs coming up in the next few weeks.
Next week I'll be at the American Society on Aging conference in San Diego on a panel about marketing to people over 50.
On April 2nd I'll be in London to give a talk at Advertising Week Europe. I expect to see you all there. And, please, no lame excuses about passport difficulties.
And if you're looking for a dynamic and provocative speaker for an event you're having, I can do a pretty good impersonation.
