I had such a fun weekend as a guest speaker at the Denver Home Show! Thank you all for your kind comments and words of encouragement this weekend via social media! Lots of you asked how it went, so I thought I’d post a quick wrap up and a few photos from the weekend.
A couple of months ago I got a call from a woman who works for the company that coordinates many of the home shows around the country. She shared with me that organization has become one of the most requested topics at the home shows. She asked me if I would be interested in being a guest speaker at the Denver show and adapting my 10 Steps to Get Organized and Stay Organized post into a 30-45 minute presentation.
Despite not loving public speaking, it knew that it was a fantastic opportunity and I immediately agreed.
In the week leading up to the Denver Home Show, it was exciting to see my name in the newspaper along side the other two guest speakers, Matt Muenster of HGTV’s Bath Crashers, and Leanne Lee, winner of the Home & Garden Trendsetter of the Year contest and blogger at Diva of DIY!
On Thursday, the day before the Home Show started, I stopped by the complex during set up to meet the coordinators in person and to pick up some free passes that I was able to leave at will call for my friends and social media followers.
Then Friday was the big day! On my way into the venue I saw that each attendee was being handed a list of show highlights with my face on it – crazy!
I arrived early so that I could hear Leanne speak in the time slot before mine, and she was so welcoming and encouraging! We snapped a quick photo with her selfie stick – my first every selfie stick experience!
