When I moved from North America to Australia four years ago, many of my North American clients reacted as though I'd moved to the moon. I was just gone from their world, and no longer came to mind as a possible resource.
This year and next, I'm putting a lot of energy into changing that perception. I've always come to North America at least once a year and want to start coming more frequently.
Right now, I'm negotiating with a California regional government for me to visit and do a presentation for them at the end of October. I will almost certainly visit the Pacific Northwest on the same trip.
Governments or organisations who might like me to do a presentation for them, or consult with them in person, are in encouraged to get in touch! In addition to the "Field Guide for Transit Quarrels" (video here, Powerpoint and PDF here), I also do presentations on the "Be on the Way" principle of transit-oriented land use planning, and can easily throw one together on almost any topic that's been discussed on this blog.
I can't do them for free this time, but it's an opportunity for me to do small things without having to charge the client for the entire flight across the Pacific.
