I have a hectic (for me) period of travel and events coming up. Here’s a quick rundown, in case you’re in the area; I’d love to meet IRL.

May 18 (next Tuesday), I’ll be in Jacksonville, Fla., speaking at PRVille 2010 – Top Shelf Social Media, which is being organized by North Florida PRSA.

I don’t know how “top shelf” I am, but I’m looking forward to meeting, hearing and learning from Mary Henige and Ryan Paul Thomson, not to mention catching up with my buddies Bryan Campbell and Bonnie Upright.

As an aside, whenever I hear “top shelf,” I always – always – think of Phoebe aka Lisa Kudrow’s “top drawer” act in “Friends.” What a great show that was. (Season 9, Episode 7).

May 26 I’ll be in Montréal, speaking at WebCom Montréal 2010, along with my Twitter buddy Claude Malaison. Claude and I first “met” a couple of years ago and I’m really excited to see him IRL, as well as, I hope, many others I haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting in person.

This is also the first time I’ll be part of a bilingual presentation (guess who won’t be speaking French?).

June 19 is the Women Grow Business Boot Camp, right here in DC. Since we announced it a couple of days ago, registration’s been climbing (W00T!). This is a great opportunity to meet and hear from several dynamic women entrepreneurs, so do sign up quickly if you’d like to attend, since space is limited.

I’ll probably be exhausted by the time all this is over but hey, what’s that compared to meeting and making friends?

Maybe the next time I’ll even get to fly Virgin again.

See you soon, I hope!
