For all of you who`d rather not see me or even worse hear me talk n the coming weeks and month – here is a quick cheat sheet of the bigger events you might run into me or see me on stage. There are quite a few more but I figured I`d list the big ones where the possibility/danger is rather high – so no little events but I`ll cover those in edition two.

TEDx Utrecht


<rant> Bit of a rant, so please forgive me – and I’m the first to admit, that I have often failed to follow these obvious steps many times – as it requires time and effort to follow them.  Just take a look at my old posts for evidence – and then refrain from publicly shaming me – please?


Take 30 minutes every two to three month to browse through your contacts at LinkedIn, Xing, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ to stay on top of who you know…

You will be surprised, how with the constant fluctuation – people changing roles and moving to new companies – you all of a sudden have a wealth of direct personal contacts at Google, Microsoft, Techcrunch, Yahoo! aso. (replace examples with companies in your industry).
