I've been invited to keynote and present an eProductivity conference, in Manila, Philippines, in late November. With an expected attendance of 7,000-10,000 people, the conference will be presented as a service to the people of Manila and will take place at the The Cathedral of Praise, a very large church in Manila with a building large enough to seat everyone.  The Cathedral of Praise has a history of outreach and service to the people of the Philippines, both spiritually and physically, and I'm delighted to be a part of their service to the people of Manila.

This conference will be a wonderful opportunity to share thoughts and ideas on how to use information, communication, and action tools and technologies as well as best practices in productivity methodologies and workplace effectiveness with the audience. I'm most excited to be able to present not only some of my eProductivity tools and tips but also to introduce the audience to work by other business and productivity experts that have greatly influenced my own learning and work. My colleague, Michael Sampson, has agreed to help me coordinate the conference tracks. I've seen Michael's work at other conferences (e.g. Enterprise 2.0) and I'm honored to have him on my advance planning team.

I plan to head over this week for a very quick trip to meet Pastor David Sumrall, my host, tour the venue, and meet with representatives of the various tracks to learn about the challenges that individuals and business owners, large and small, face in the Philippines. Then, I'll return to the U.S. and get started researching and preparing the conference presentations.

We've yet to wrap up the specific topic details, but it looks like we will have 9 sessions over 6 days with three tracks: general, technical, and executive. I'm honored to be invited to present and I'm grateful for the opportunity.

I'll post some photos and details of the conference as the plans unfold.  For those of you who've followed my blog for some time, you'll remember why I'm not afraid to speak to large audiences.
