Kevin Hoffman joins us on the show this week and talks about how a job as webmaster sparked his speaking career! We talk about Kevin’s first conference experience at the IA Summit and how that opportunity came about. Kevin also shares with us when he gets nervous and how he uses rehearsals, habits, and exercise to help conquer those nerves and other public speaking tips.

As a strategist, educator, and information architect, Kevin M. Hoffman has been making great web design happen for 15 years. He did his hard time as ye olde “webmaster” in public libraries and universities as a team of one, designing and coding his way through microsite after microsite and redesign after redesign. While leading web communications teams the University of Baltimore and MICA, he also taught a younger generation of web designers in both BFA and MFA design programs, introducing them to web standards before browsers introduced those same standards into their codebase.
Today Kevin provides strategic consulting and workshops to both clients and agencies alike, helping them move their web presences into this newfangled, device-independent, software-as-service digital world.
