Blogging is going to get slowed down for a little while, as I prepare for a tour of duty with the United Way as a “loaned executive.” That’s basically where your company decides you’re valuable enough to help raise money, but expendable enough to do without.

There are some exciting things on the horizon, however. Seminars and personal coaching is beginning to pick back up, and there are a couple of organizations out there waiting on proposals to move forward. I’m also working on getting some of this seminar material on tape.

A lot of the information I provide to my consulting clients works within the small business environment as well. Yet these are the same businesses that don’t have the resource or budget to bring me in for a large presentation.

I’m working with some pretty heady people on a format that will be easy to follow, engage the listener, and be more cost effective for those clients “in between.” I’ll be announcing more about those products as we get closer to rolling them out.

With that in mind, I’d like a bit of feedback from you. What sorts of solutions are you seeking when it comes to better media relations and interviewing? What are the biggest pitfalls in your interoffice communication? How much would you benefit from being able to better tell “your story?”

Your input and encouragement are most welcome…

Ike.
