Happy Friday!

Before I head into the weekend, I wanted to give you a quick update on the book tour.

Dang, have I had a great summer!

Me and longtime blog reader Mark Spieglan at Chicago workshop.

I hit the beautiful cities of Sunnyvale, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Washington DC, Charlotte, Atlanta, New York, San Francisco and Dallas.

My heart and spirit are soaring from the amazing  interactions.  At each workshop, as I was sitting back observing the participants connecting and laughing and sharing their business ideas, I kept thinking:

Dang,  I get paid to do this work!

What an honor to work with such smart, funny and creative people.

I keep meaning to write  a long post about the workshops, but I get home and get so caught up in reconnecting with my kids, then getting ready for the next one that I haven’t done it yet. I promise to share more in November!

The tweets have been flying after each event, and I am so delighted to see people from different cities connect together. Here is the word on the street:

Right now, I have the following workshops and presentations lined up for the rest of the year:

  • London Escape from Cubicle Nation Workshop, Monday, October 12.  This will be a very rare appearance in the UK, so I really hope to connect with as many people as I can. We will be doing the workshop at TwitterJobSearch.com headquarters, thanks to the delightful Henry Mack, whom I met at SXSW. Register here.I will also be joining the wonderful Lea and Jonathan Woodward of locationindependent.com for their meetup on Sunday, October 11. See here for details.
  • Pärnu Management Conference 2009, Tallinn, Estonia, October 15-16. I will speak on the topic of new leadership behaviors for the new millennium. (The conference organizer was inspired by my Open Letter to CXOs post and invited me to speak. How is that for the power of Google?)
  • Coaching Millions Super Summit in Dallas, Texas, October 23-25.  I will speak on personal branding. I look forward to learning a lot about the future of the coaching industry, and new, effective business models.  Register here.
  • Los Angeles Escape from Cubicle Nation Workshop, November 4 with the fan-freaking-tastic Colleen Wainwright (Communicatrix). She joined me in Chicago and wowed us with her sizzling branding and social media knowledge.  This will most likely be my last live workshop of 2009, so if you have been itching to do a workshop, come join us! Register here.

I should be tired from all this travel, but frankly, I am totally energized.

I hope that we get a chance to meet up in person before the year ends. If not, I will be sure to hit the road again in January!

Enjoy your weekend.

    Well I am signed up and was discussing it with my girlfriend who thought it sounded so good she went and signed up to. Looking forward to it!

    If there is any good material or questions to think on beforehand, be sure to let me know.
