NATPE is the global content marketplace for a digital world.

Evolving to meet the demands of a changing media landscape, NATPE delivers a first look at fresh content before MIP and the LA Screenings, giving industry leaders a jump-start on monetizing their projects. Now, in Miami, a major international attraction, NATPE is a catalyst in the content revolution - providing thousands of chances to make one good deal. If you're an industry player, you have to be at NATPE 2011.

My unbelieveable schedule for the next two weeks!
I depart Monday Jan. 23rd for the Miami NATPE Convention.
I'm speaking Thursday Jan. 26th at the Women in Ecommerce Seminar in Ft Lauderdale.
I'm speaking twice at the Superstar Internet and Branding Summit Ft. Lauderdale.
I fly to Washington DC Sunday Jan. 29th, to attend RealScreen until Feb 1. Then back in the office Feb 2.
Note: This will be an extremely busy time. It will be tough to have many consultations because the conventions go from early morning until late at night each night. I will still be on email, and Nick and Shannon in my office will be on alert to help you.

Next Tuesday January 17th, 2012 will be the Open House for the local media to tour the new facilities of the Internet Marketing Training Center in Virginia Beach.
Over 300 local news reporters from the Virginian Pilot, local radio and television stations have been personally invited to come into the facility, listen to presentations by Tom and learn more about what the school offers.
Many have already shown interest in doing a story about Tom and the school prior to even attending the event. They are excited that a local school here in their home town is offering the kind of unique training found nowhere else, and helping local residents (and people from all over the world) to excel in the new career of Internet Marketing.
It is of great interest to the military community that another open door to an educational experience has opened for active service personnel and their families, who may be entering the private sector for the first time. IMTC is helping educate the military, stay-at-home moms. high school students and people recently laid off to find a new career.
Find out more about IMTC and its courses and most of all: wish us luck on Media Night!

The use of sexist language is something you must also be careful to avoid in order to be in tune with today's society. There is an excellent section about this topic in the book Speak Like a Pro by Margaret Bedrosian. A salesman is now a salesperson. A fireman is now a firefighter. You don't look for a chairman for a meeting, you look for someone to chair the meeting or a chairperson.
You must be very careful in your use of humor in these sensitive times. People may fixate on one wrong word and tune you out and/or be offended. You may personally feel that using a little off-color joke once in awhile is OK, or you may think that no harm is done in using sexist language whenever you feel like it. I can assure you that you are wrong when it comes to professional presentations. Do whatever you want with your friends, but if you persist in any of these behaviors you will be labeled as "out-of-touch" and largely unpromotable in virtually every major corporation.
Tom will pay YOU to read this book!
