With about 125,000 air miles, and about 50 events, my 2013 speaking year has drawn to a close. It was a wild one — clients like NASA’s Goddard Space Center, where I spoke to an audience of astrophysicists and other scientists; Sandia Nuclear Laboratories, where I literally had a room full of nuclear engineers, to a private wealth management conference held in Athens, which I figured had folks in the audience representing several trillions of dollars of wealth.
I wrapped it up this week with a keynote for the New Jersey Real Estate Association Triple Play conference held in Atlantic City — and drew an audience close to 1,500 for a luncheon talk.
Let’s face it, real estate hasn’t exactly been the hottest industry through the last few years — so I went out and did a barnburner of a speech around a variety of future trends, and the need for relentless innovation.
I guess it worked – here’s a bit of the Twitter stream!
2014 is already heavily booked right out into June 2014, so it looks like another spectacular year!
