I’m attending the Ingram Micro SMB Alliance Conference in Charlotte, NC this week. I had agreed to do a presentation on Online Presence Management a few months ago so I expected to see my name in the program. What a surprise when I was standing at the opening reception and I see my face flash up on the digital display! I don’t even know where the picture came from. The next thing I know, Ryan Grant, the MC of the opening ceremony tells me that he is going to mention me in his opening remarks. So the next morning I come downstairs for breakfast and find myself staring at a large poster right outside the main auditorium with, you guessed it, my picture on it.
Then Ryan puts up a giant photo of me on the screen as he proceeds to talk about Port-to-Port Consulting and our Pertingo service. From that point on, I’ve had people coming up to me saying, “You’re the poster guy.” Yes, I am the poster guy. It’s kind of weird to be so recognized by people. I don’t think I could handle being really famous. I’m giving my presentation twice this afternoon. I hope it goes well.
