Next week I'll be in San Francisco for a couple of days working with a documentary film maker who is making a Presentation Zen DVD for the publisher. Mostly I'll be in front of a green screen elaborating on some of the ideas in the book and blog. There will be more news about the DVD and the online versions in the future. I'll be doing a couple of presentations including presenting once again at Microsoft in Silicon Valley on Thursday. That's an internal talk, but the next day (Friday), I'll be speaking at the offices of Slideshare in the evening (not far from the Microsoft campus). After the presentation there is a book signing, food & drinks, etc. If you're in the Bay Area, I hope you can make it to Slideshare on Friday. (Here are the details on Facebook, or see the Slideshare blog.
I'll be in Nashville for the Voices That Matter Web Conference the week after that. Really looking forward to that. I'll be talking on Friday the 13th about the ideas of presentation zen in the context of web design, and frankly graphic design and communication in general.
After a week or so back in Japan, I'll be heading to New Zealand for the first time to give two six-hour workshops for Webstock's Autumn series. This time I'm in Wellington only due to some tight scheduling, but I hope to be back soon to Auckland if there is demand. After the Wellington workshops I'll head over to Sydney for five days (July 2-7). No plans there yet, just a holiday in Australia, but if you're in Sydney and you need a presentation let me know.
Later on in the summer after returning to Japan from some presentations in the US (including one in Redmond), I'll be heading to India for about a week for 5-6 presentations and events. The schedule in India looks something like this: Aug 18-19 Bangalore (two talks), Aug 20-21 Mumbai (two talks), Aug 22-24 New Delhi (two talks and one press event). Some really cool people have put this tour together in India; there will be more details soon that I'll point you to.
