PLZ TAKE NOTES
GIVE THE SPEAKER THE CUSTOMARY COURTESY AND ATTENTION
THINK ABOUT WRITING AN ITEM FOR YOUR BLOG ABOUT WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY
I HAVE ASKED JUDY TO TALK ABOUT:

what you do on the blog
how you do it

what kind of impact you have
I TOLD HER THE PRESENTATION
could be 15 or 20 minutes or more depending on her read of the audience.
we'll encourage dialogue and questions.
