14th February 2017:

I’ve been back in the UK for almost two months now, after spending two months in New Zealand. (The photo above is of Mount Cook.)

I’m still working on How to Engage – a series of articles on how to engage in different scenarios. I’m also preparing for the launch of an event consulting offering.

Additionally, I have a small number of clients for 2017 who are keeping me very busy!

During this year of 2017 I’ve decided to pursue public speaking again, and have applied to a wide range of conferences to talk about engagement. So far I’m booked at:

Me by the numbers:

  • 3 kids, 1 wife, and 1 hamster
  • Over 500 talks / workshops / lectures / seminars / sermons done
  • 16 years experience in engagement
  • Over 20,000 hours doing community management / building
  • 400+ conferences / productions / concerts / shows / services that I’ve run
  • 19 years of web, graphic and creative designer – innumerable things made
  • 15 years old when I had my first client, self employed since 19 (2003)
  • 40 television programmes produced
  • 100-ish poems written
  • 1300-ish congregants pastored
  • 1 stammer that I manage
  • 2000-ish a few hundred books in my library (I had a major cull)
