Not a natural-born public speaker? Don't worry. It's a skill that can be learned. Start with these tips from professional speakers who know all about getting in front of an audience. (via +Dorie Clark )

Yesterday I was a guest on Tom Harrington's CBC/Radio-Canada "Consumed" with Ellen Roseman and Tim Caulfield. You can listen to the replay here:
Tom Harrington looks back at what he's learned in 5 years as the co-host of Marketplace. He'll track the collapse of organized consumer protection and show how consumers are now more vulnerable to being misled or misinformed.

I'm very proud to say that a new song of mine is the centerpiece of a fundraising effort to support the families of fallen fire fighters in America. Please visit FireHero.org and take part in "The Fallen And The Brave Challenge."

Hi Everyone. 

I'm a week away from embarking on maybe one of the coolest trips I've ever taken.  I'm heading to Namibia, Africa, for the first time to support an amazing tourism company called Gondwana.  They say Namibia has all of Africa in it and The Gondwana Collection own 14 lodges around this diverse country that  share a unique aspect of the African geography.

I'll be traveling to three of these lodges and speaking in the capital city of Windhoek to support Gondwana and their amazing Customer Service Training Academy. I love that they are committed to giving every tourist who visits with them a world class experience and honoured they asked me to come there to help in that.

I'll be giving updates along the way so keep an eye out for that and perhaps think about coming back with me next year as part of a tour group. I have a feeling I'm going to feel at home there. I already know I appreciate their taste in music (see if you can pick out the melody in this music video made by their employees).

 I'm stoked. Stay tuned for more.

Cheers,
Dave

"Worrying more about how many people will watch it before you focus on what they will experience, is like putting the cart before the horse, or in this case, the count before the content."
One night, shortly after midnight, I got a call from a man in Shanghai who struggled to explain to me through his thick accent, that he wanted to commission me for a viral video. When I asked him to explain the focus of his story, he said he was looking for a music video that would expose the affair his wife was having with a Vegas Restaurateur.Maybe I’ve watched The Godfather too many times but upsetting anyone who lives within the city limits o...
