my summer availability (and the rest of the year too!)

an odd thing (or at least surprising to me) is happening on my calendar as i continue to book speaking engagements for this year and next. i’m getting a good deal of stuff in the short term (through may), and i’m getting a couple things per month for the fall (though i certainly still have space there). but my summer is surprisingly open. and, while i’m trying to develop both my consulting and coaching work, speaking engagements are my primary source of income (plus, i love doing them!).

so, if you’re still looking for a speaker in june, july, or august, i might be your guy!

here’s my current speaking schedule from now ’til the end of the year, with comments about availabity:

*sunday, may 2, is open and i’ll be in florida with my airfare already covered. i’m finished in ft myers saturday evening, and am due in orlando monday morning. would love to find something for that sunday. the rest of the month is currently open, but i’m working on another trip to haiti in that span.
