Hey ho, back to the office

Well, that was an amazing two weeks. I've been in New York City, attending the annual convention of the National Speakers Association, with 2,000 fellow speakers in a posh hotel in Times Square. The highlight of the trip for me was a private after party in a huge suite on the 43rd floor, with fellow speakers and entertainers. Amazing.

The centre of Manhattan is packed with media outlets - in fact it's hard to wander down a street without tripping over lighting cable or camera crew. You'd think that people would be used to it, but far from it - huge crowds gather whenever an arc light is turned on. Maybe they're all tourists like me. If you want to be on TV, just stand in Times Square for a full day - more likely than not you'll end up in front of a camera.

Anyway, back to work in the office, for a couple of days at least. I'm off travelling again on Wednesday - no rest for the itinerant media expert....

Well, that was an enjoyable read. A very nice blog, I must say. Unfortunately I will never be in Times Square and therefore will never be in front of a camera.

Good to see you've joined the blogging community Alan. But you do need to change your comment permissions so people can post their own URLs rather than just a blogger address!

Cheers, Kathie
