As I mentioned in an earlier post on giving speeches at matter, I was given the opportunity to provide my very first keynote address at this year’s Crayons to Computers fundraising event. The event came my way due to a relationship I have forged with the nonprofit’s CEO Susan Frankel after my op-ed on education and poverty was published in the Cincinnati Enquirer. Let me just take a moment to say that if you had told me 5 years ago that I would ever have the opportunity to type the previous sentence in my lifetime, then I would have laughed. Like a lot.
I also promised in that post that once the video was made available to me that I would publish it here. I’m herein officially a keeper of promises! I will actually be giving my second keynote address on the 25th of this month at the Kids in Need Summit in Atlanta, GA. I’m also in talks for a third in Minneapolis in September. Who knows. I might just make this speech giving thing a habit.
