I got my first opportunity to give a keynote at the age of 23, which wouldn’t have been so intimidating if the audience wasn’t full of Harvard Medical School alumni. I remember giving practice runs of that speech to the wall in my office every work day for a month before I headed up to Boston. It went well and was the start of many meaningful relationships. I’ve been inspired to teach ever since.

As the media environment changed in the years since, the opportunity to teach and connect with people like you has also expanded. I love taking questions on the blog, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn or via email. You can also join my email list to receive a monthly digest from me on how you can improve your platform or grab a copy of our new book, Mastering the New Media Landscape.

Here’s how to get started:
