Bloggers and speakers have a lot in common. Cruise ship speaker can learn from bloggers who can, in turn, learn from cruise ship lecturers.
I am a professional blogger in my ‘other life.’ I don’t just blah, blah, blah.
I am also a professional speaker. I get invited to go places and speak beyond the cruise ship circuit. Next month is Cape Town and Johannesburg. Next March, Kuala Lumpur and Shanghai. That kind of thing.
Today I had lunch with a fellow who is director of sales for a radio station here in the Bay Area of San Jose.

In many industries and experiences there are cross overs – experiences and lessons learned that can be applied across disciplines.
When people get together in groups to share and learn from one another it is called a Mastermind group.
I heard of a group of cardio pulmonary doctors hanging out with some gas pipe fitters. That sounds cool.

I thought to share in my next series of articles here some of the cross over disciplines there are from my experience between blogging and speaking.
There are things I do to make myself a better content marketer that can make me a better speaker. There are things I do as a speaker that can make me a better content marketer.
I want to share. More importantly, I want you to share. Tell me how you became good at what you do and let’s think out loud how those lessons can make us better cruise ship speakers.
