Depending on where we are in our business lives, we get opportunities to speak. Be it at a small gathering or in front of happening crowds; we have those rare high value opportunities to make a wonderful impression.

As this all plays out, I have known so many people to really miss opportunities here when they are speaking. As you are the one who is speaking, you probably won’t be able to take photos of yourself very well.

I have always learned the importance of getting great people to take photos of you when you speak at an event. The best way is to take someone with you to get wonderful photos of you.

Be it your partner, best friend, pal, someone you want as a partner, dog sitter, cat sitter, mother, brother, father, nemesis or enemy; get someone to take photos of you as you speak.

At our event last night, my awesome wife Lassie (who totally rocks) took lots of images of Helen Gerasimou speaking at our event and they looked just great. Helen has great photos to help her with her marketing and own social media.

My advice and thinking? When you speak at an event, get someone to take wonderful photos.

Don’t waste the incredible opportunity!

Love your work and stay awesome friends!
