Profs: This winter, I'll be teaching a grad course for Concordia U's Adult Learning Program called Team Building and Leading Change in Organizations. Have any of you taught a similar course? I'd love to connect with you to share resources. My plan is to make this course project based and HIGHLY interactive with little lecture. Suggestions?

Have y'all heard about the rebranding that the National Speakers Association is doing? The new name will be Platform, and that's irked quite a few of Michael Hyatt's followers, as Hyatt wrote a book titled Platform not long ago. 

If you're a current NSA member, or someone with an interest in the impact of this rebranding, would you mind reaching out to me? I'm writing an article for Ragan's PR Daily this week.

This might also be a good topic for next week's Hobson & Holtz Report.

Not a member, though I've often been told I should be. But...Platform? Lectern, maybe, or Podium or even Soap Box, but Platform? Among other things, how will prospective members find it? "I'm looking for an association for professional speakers, so I'll type Platform into Google and see what comes up." Ummm, no...

I'll be a guest speaker (via Hangout) in +Amber Hutchins class tonight. The topic is running an ethical contest in social media. Here are a few links to info the class might find useful. #igctech

Good morning, friends. It's finally Saturday. Long week.

My #GenghisGrill #HealthKwest is about 3/4 over, and I have been losing 2 to 3 pounds of week. Yay!

I made a short video that includes cats, a neck tattoo, and hair that looks like bacon (at least according to my boss),

In 36 hours, I will stop asking for you to view this short video. But for now, please take a look (even if you have already done so) and share with your friends here, on Twitter, on Tumblr, etc. I really appreciate it!

Many of you know that I am participating in the #GenghisGrill 2014 #HealthKwest, a nationwide contest that combines social media and starting healthier lifestyle. Yesterday's social media task was to create an "ad" for Genghis Grill and post it on YouTube. With the help of several folks, mine is pretty good, if I do say so myself. You'll not only see some cute cats (it is on YouTube, you know), but you'll also see me adding to my tattoo collection.

This task comes with the potential for me to win a mini-prize based that is partially based on the number of views it gets between now and Sunday evening. Would you please consider viewing this 45-second video and also sharing it with others in your circle? I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks!

Running a contest using social media can be tricky, but there are guidelines by most platforms that will help out.
