Optimize & Lee Odden Speaking Schedule in Q1 2013

NMX 2013

Answering questions after speaking at NMX

Wow, what an amazing 9 months it has been. Optimize has been getting great feedback, reviews and people are buying the book. Companies are also reaching out after reading the book with requests for me to give presentations and workshops which is great too.

Writing and marketing a book is like few other endeavors I’ve undertaken. Especially while maintaining my other “day job” responsibilities. While this blog has not been updated at all like I planned in 2012, that will be fixed in the new year.

To start, here are events where I’ll be presenting over the first 3 months of 2013 where some or all of the content includes key principles of Optimize. I’m creating new presentations every month in 2013, so if you attended a book launch or have seen me present at conferences in 2012, these will be different. While the creative, stats and examples will be different, the key Optimize principles are timeless. Optimize lays a great foundation upon which I will continue to build and share best practices.
