When you work in advertising, marketing, and media (as I do), public speaking and making presentations is part of the job. It can be a nerve-wracking part of the job. On our best days, it’s one of the pleasures that experience and expertise allow.

Presentations I’ve Made:

  • “The Work of a Creative Director,” Guest lecture at Stan Richards School of Advertising & PR at the University of Texas, Austin, 2022
  • “Ad Legends: The People, Creative Movements, and Legendary Work That Shaped the Modern Craft of Advertising,” Workshop at Signal Theory, Kansas City, MO and Wichita, KS, 2019
  • “Fundamentals of Business Writing,” Xplane Annual Meeting, Portland, OR, 2017
  • “The Need for Agility in Content Marketing,” Bend Web Marketers, Bend, OR, 2014
  • “Paid Content in 2012 and Beyond,” Geekend Roadshow (part of Direct Marketing Association), Boston, MA, 2011
  • Panel on Social Media, Portland State University, Portland, OR, 2010
  • “How to Land Your Dream Job,” Meet the Pros, Omaha, NE, 2002
