We’ve had a lot of questions about where and when we will be on the road this year and I think we are finally getting that nailed down. Before we get to the schedule though, I want to tell folks about some changes to the seminar it’self and venues.
I’m completely scrapping the white-board format of the seminar and going with a power-point/mixed media presentation. This will unfortunately cut down on my jokes about my “Serial Killer” handwriting, but I’ve always wanted this to be in a different format and now it’s time to do it. I’ll be able to get through much more material, do it faster, and use some nifty learning aids. I have thought about an advanced topics seminar but what I want (ideally) to do is provide all the material I want to cover in one day instead of separate gigs. This helps minimize travel for me and maximizes the amount of material y’all get at a given event. I WILL expect that attendees have read my book and looked at some pre-seminar reading. If you have not, and if you do not have a science background, you will be learning this stuff like it’s coming out of a fire-hose. Just saying. This is also getting the seminar into a format to be University accredited and offer CME/CEU/University credits. I wanted to wait until all that stuff was hammered out but it is a laborious process so I’ll just keep you posted as things develop.
We will be heading out of the gym and into larger conference centers, university lecture halls and hospital educational centers. There are several reasons for this:
-We have over 600 requests to host a seminar. Although that is awesome, I will need to be cryogenically frozen between gigs to live long enough to get them done. Now that we will be at larger venues we can have several local entities be sponsors. In Chico for example, we have the local hospital, California State University Chico and NorCal Strength & Conditioning as sponsors.
-To upgrade the presentation we need AV system, projectors and all that jazz. I just do not want to schlep that gear all around the planet. So, we will hit locations that have those items plus wacky things like heat, AC, lots of bathrooms, good access to food etc.
Ok, here is the partial schedule we will do for 2011, I will have the rest up in a few days. We will only be doing 5 locations. If you want to get in on it, that’s it! In addition to the PSS I’ll also be helping Loren Cordain with the Physician/health care provide certification program, but I’m NOT going to be on the road 34 weeks again this year like I’ve been the last three years! Keystone does not recognize me anymore and it’s heartbreaking.
Chico, CA -March 5th
Toronto, Ontario Canada-March 26
Kansas City, KS-June
I am JAZZED about this change. I have so much material I want to cover and this new format should let me do it. If you want to sign up for either Chico or Toronto, you can find that info here. Kansas and the other locations will be up soon.
