DC Keynote recap – Things I Will Never Get Tired of Hearing

About an hour and 45 minutes ago, I wrapped up my first professional speaking engagement. I knew it would go well when the person introducing me said “And Josh has promised me that he won’t present any data or acronyms,” and the substantial crowd burst into cheers.

I was as good as her word. No acronyms.

Now that it’s over, there are some thing I know I will never get tired of hearing:

  • Best keynote ever
  • How much is your fee?
  • That was very helpful
  • I don’t believe that this is the first time you’ve ever done this
  • Can I give you a hug?

But now it’s time to stop basking in the compliments. My face has suddenly added two sizable hives to its topography and I am on the mad quest for Benadryl in our nation’s capital. Tonight I will be meeting a couple of senators and I can’t go in looking like the elephant man.

Any questions I should pass on for our representatives? Suggestion box is open!

    That’s awesome Josh! No surprise that you knocked it out of the park. Hope you were able to find some Benadryl before your meetings…we could use some fresh perspective in our nation’s capital 🙂

    Fantabulous! Hope you found some Benadryl and knocked some sense into our congress critters.
