Me on YouTube at the HealthCare Social Media Conference.

Do you all remember when I was asked to speak at a Conference in NY earlier this year?

Well, here it is. Some of what I had ready to say was changed once I sat in on day one and heard the context of the conference. Not sure if my point will be as clear w/out you all seeing that context but, here it is - all taped. Ugh, be easy on me, lol YOu know I love you :)

I think you did just fine. Thanks for your knowledge, your passion for facts, and your willingness to help all of us with them.  I really appreciate it.

Thank you Tom, feel I struggled in the beginning,  but if you made it through it all, hope I was able to capture what we have here and what they are missing.
Room had varying "large" healthcare system SC directors, and some that were from varying professions inbetween. Also, those looking to get their SM up and running.

Thank you Pastor D - Nice to see you :)

Thank you, JB - Thatta even Atta boys are great in my book.

All! Was my pleasure. For those of you who have not viewed the video - you'll see I was talking about you, or us, well, you know what I mean :)

And, I'd do it again :) Was a special opportunity (in my opinion) to make a plea to large hospital systems (Mayo, Virtua, and More), to include more of what we need, and why. They said so much on day one and I felt I needed to include some of the comments I did so they understood.
Thank you all for your nice comments :)

Loved it my Ms. Um girl!

When you are passionate and off the cuff, you're like a tiger hunting its prey!  It was the reading that disrupted the flow!  You were better off tossing out those papers! LOL!

Seriously, you did a great job and on point to what your topic was about.

I'm so proud of you Miss Public Speaker!

You have proven that the social media in health in regard to Medhelp is considered invaluable to those who come here and seek answers that lack via medical professionals and/or compassion, empathy and friendship during their journey.

-hugs-

Uuuh, I wasn't "reading" lol! I was glancing, hahahah

I hated every um myself, and was counting them until I couldn't count anymore, hahah.

I had changed my points sooo much due to what was said on day 1, that had I not glanced at my speaking points , I would have missed an opportunity to counter, or add onto one of their points on 1st day.

Thank you soo much Lisa girl....
Um, Um (what's that word... oh yea...),
Sincerely -
Tiger! haha

Oh my goodness...Shell, you did such a great job !  I know that it is hard to speak like that with all of the "holes" in your head.  I can just see me even trying to public speak.

You did us proud !!!

Love you much....

GREAT job, Shell!  I am impressed.  Most of us, me included, would not have the guts to deliver a talk like this.  Thanks for your insightful comments, I'm sure your content was enlightening to many in that audience.  Too bad there weren't any neuros there. ;-)  Well done, my friend.

I'm having a hard to finding the vid.  I'm sure it was terrific, but for some reason, I can't view it.  I will keep trying.  (I'm not very computer literate.)

Tammy, it should work if you just copy the URL into your browser menu bar.  I couldn't view it on my iPad for some reason but was able to on my laptop.

You did a great job Shelly.  I have to speak tomorrow for five minutes, and I'm sweating it!  I can't imagine speaking to a crowd for over twenty minutes. Thank you for representing us all.  Hopefully, the people in the room will listen, and apply your advice.  (BTW: It's hard to believe you have a child in their early twenties.  You don't look old enough!)

Doublevision:  Thanks for the how-to.  It worked great!

I forgot to mention how sexy you looked.  I don't think it mattered whatever came out of your mouth, it was like watching Jennifer Aniston on stage (you're just better lookin') Ha!

hugs and lurves

The funny lady

(I think Im a bit high from baclofen I took last night for my muscles.  So pardon the idiocy LOL!)

I was hot alright! Down right sweatin, lol! Sweatin' (is that a word, lol!) the saliva right out of my mouth! I drank 3 bottles of water before that presentation but my mouth still turned into a desert.

All,
I'm blushing, but proud as a peacock, tickled really, ALL at the same time with all you've said and got out of this.

Honestly, if it were not for the cause, who it was for, what we believe in - what we need, I would have never have done it. I'd have no purpose.

You give me purpose for this :)

From the bottom of my heart to yours, thank you all so much. It was a pleasure.

You may be interested in seeing the context of the two days. Here is a video compilation, which I feel does capture some of what was said those two days (not all of course) 10 minute video would never capture over 16 hrs of a conference.

Thank so much shelly for going to bat for us!
I imagine the whole conference was exausting. YOu did wonerfully and I know you made a positive impact on those attending.

I have appreciated MedHelp here for a very  long time.
I remember earlier days and how far it evolved.
:))  good job!  Amo

Okay, I'd chosen to withhold my comments about your appearance out of fear of being seen as sexist, but now that it's been brought up by others -- -- Yeah, what they said!  ;>D

Of course, my daughter's approaching 35, so I'm starting to look my age!
Blank
198419_tn?1360245956
AMO - I'd go to bat for you and all of us any day of the week! We sure have evolved haven't well!

Pastor D, thank you, thank you! I'm humbly accepting compliments and complaints too hahah. Not sexist at all :) I'm honored.

Shelly-Girl, you did a great job. Thanks so much from all of us.

And for those who are noticing also that Shell is gorgeous, well, you're right. She and I don't live too far apart, and what with one thing or another, we've met up several times, so I know.

Shelly's a doll in every way!
