I started the month of November with a full day of events at Oregon State University, in Corvallis.
The highlight of the day was my speech at noon, at the beautiful facilities in the LaSells Stewart Center. After a glowing introduction by Associate Dean Don Neubaum, I spoke for an hour about how I became an internationally-recognized thought leader and the lessons for anyone seeking to be successful in today’s complex web-connected world.
This represented a different topic from my usual talks about livability and quality of life, and my rankings of the best places to live. Someone said what I do is interesting, but how I do it is important.
The title of the talk was, “Create Your Own Brand and Control Your Destiny.”
