I was invited to an event tonight by Mitch Young. It’s sponsored by Business New Haven. It sounded like a good networking opportunity, so I said yes. My friend Ann Nyberg tells me networking is what I should be all about!
I’ll probably be going back into television, but who knows? There are loads of opportunities I don’t know about. Maybe I’ll find one tonight.
The affair is at Amarantes in New Haven. At the very least I’ll get a really good Italian meal tonight. I should have realized I’ll also have to sing for my supper!
Mitch Young told me you might be joining us for our Business & Civic Awards event this evening and might also be available to say a few syllables. True?
Hope so, and best wishes,
That little email was the first I’d heard about speaking! The dinner’s tonight. It came this afternoon.
Speaking in public has never been a problem for me. I’ll be giving a community service award to Covidien Surgical Devices and probably say a few cautionary words on the power of social media.
In the last two months I’ve become an expert on the power social media. That was much more unexpected than my being asked to speak!

Have a great time! People will be delighted to see and hear you.
Since you’re going to be giving a speech, you’d best lead with “Don’t go to sleep yet!”
Geoff, consider it a testimony to your sterling reputation that people actually WANT to hear what you have to say. That is a powerful thing. You should use that asset to your advantage.
Talk about what you want, promote your blog.
BTW – Ann is 100% correct.
Networking is certainly the way to go – both social and face to face.
I’m sure you’ll knock their socks off!

I hope you get something on TV soon. I really miss the way you made me feel like you were actually talking to me, just telling me what you thought the weather would be. I loved the way you were really sorry when you weren’t on target. Hurry up and get something. I don’t like to criticize. But, these guys just aren’t clicking for me. I am a creature of habit and I’m having a hard time adjusting. Keep us posted, Geoff. I miss your friendly face.
