    I missed your talk, but I love your slides and shared them with a few of my friends and co-workers. They were creative, inspiring, and speak for themselves. Thanks for sharing!

    This PDF is really useful to understand the best practices for Pinterest: http://business.pinterest.com/best-practices/

    Also, here is a link I was referring to about Pinterest boards that every blogger must have – this is useful for self promotion too. http://www.whiteglovesocialmedia.com/7-pinterest-social-media-marketing-boards-every-blogger-must-have/#.UYMSzr9I3w4

    Actually, the eye contact thing may need revision... but YMMV. It's just one study, so results are, of course, up for review: http://blogs.hbr.org/2013/10/sales-alert-making-eye-contact-may-not-be-such-a-good-idea/

      The main goal is to make people feel comfortable, create trust and appear confident.

      Really liked the slides on eye contact and emphasis on the biz gaze.

    Andi,
    I missed the event last night being sick. Is there a chance to view your slide deck?

    October 11, 2013

  • Val L.

    The TED Talk from Ann Cuddy was also a great recommendation. Thanks Andi!

    It was a very introspective talk; very different from other presentations held by this group. I thought it was a great change of pace, for the fact that it asked you to look inside yourself and identify your passion. It put everyone in the perfect mind space to share with each other.

    I learned the most important thing is to journal, know yourself and be authentic. Then promoting yourself will be alot easier.

    Wait, we're going to be on camera? I was hoping we'd take baby steps towards being able to talk about ourselves.

    • Andi

      I hope to find someone to tape my talk.

      I'm not the guy for the job but I believe you can record audio on your laptop, cell, etc and then combine audio and video in an editor

      October 10, 2013

  • Andi

    Does anyone want to volunteer to video tape or take pics at this event?

    October 7, 2013

    • Andi

      Alex, that's great! Thank you!
