ARRrrrr Ya’ Ready, San Diego?

Yo ho yo ho, a Pirate Con for me!

Cat’s out of the bag, y’all! I have the incredible honor of being one of the invited speakers for the first ever DBC Pirate Con in June of next year! What’s Pirate Con, you ask?

Here’s a snippet from an email, courtesy of the Pirate captains themselves:

The very first Dave Burgess Consulting, Inc. conference is going to be INSANELY AMAZING! Every single breakout session…YES every single concurrent session…is going to be conducted by one of our authors and there will be 4 general session keynotes, too!!

The conference will open on Friday evening, the majority of sessions are Saturday and Sunday (all day) and it ends with an after-party on Sunday night.

So who’s speaking when?

Great question. The good people at DBC said they are putting the finishing touches on the schedule, and “just kinda laughing as we do it, because the choices on who to see are going to be next to impossible. Can you imagine every single breakout room having one of your favorite authors in it? It’s happening!! It’s true…you would have to go to about 30 conferences to catch all these speakers! But #dbcPIRATEcon is bringing them all to one place at one time! This is unheard of.”

It’s been a few years since my last trip to the Golden State. But San Diego is beautiful! So clear your calendar, get your geek on, and make a vacation out of it for the inaugural #dbcPIRATEcon!!!

See you in San Diego!
