A few days ago, I was humbled and honored to accept the invitation to keynote at this year’s Elite Retreat in San Francisco. It is a show that a good personal friend of mine, Shoemoney, throws every year. The show attracts the best of the best in the interactive marketing space, and the host couldn’t be any more accomplished in my opinion. For those who haven’t heard of it, and are involved in anything related to online marketing, direct marketing, or anything tabbed “interactive”, you should brush up and read some testimonials of this show.

As for me, it is always humbling when other people think you have accomplished something. I guess I don’t think of it that way, and maybe that is what I will talk about. But I need to keep some secrets or else my audience will be disappointed! I’m really looking forward to it. I mean, maybe even as much as a few of my old professional tennis matches back in the day – which is saying something (for me). Ironically, I used to do way more speaking BEFORE becoming a CMO – now I do more writing. But this is really something that has me so energized, I can’t wait until December. Can’t wait.

I’m really proud to follow in the footsteps of some great past keynoters including Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk and Guy Kawasaki. I promise I will continue carrying the torch forward!
